“One of the rentals I bought was quickly rented by a single mom with two boys. The lease said no dogs. We had completely remodeled this place from top to bottom. It had a new roof, new siding, new windows, new cabinets, new flooring, and the bathrooms were completely redone. One day after school let out one of the boys called my wife to see if she could bring a key because they were locked out. She said sure, no problem. She took the key while mom was at work. The boys said she won’t let them in until she gets home from work but the Rottweilers can live there.
We requested an inspection after that and found the dogs. She was asked to move out and she did. When we hired guys to clean the place up to rent to someone else we moved the couch and all I can say is wow. This lady was so lazy that she couldn’t bother herself to get up to change her tampons so she would just keep a box by the couch and change them there. The used tampons went under the couch. That explained the smell.
At another place we had a tenant with some mental issues that kept calling. She would say there’s large animals in the attic every night. We sent exterminators up there and they never came up with anything. We finally figured it out after the tenant next door was arrested for narcotics. We decided to go into the attic space and found out what the large animals were. It was this guy after his night of ‘deliveries’’. He would return his narcotics and cash to the attic space so if he ever got arrested the police wouldn’t find it. They didn’t but we did so we went to the sheriff’s office and turned it over to them.”
