I have many properties that I own & rent out to students or small families in the area.
It is a nice way to make a little bit of extra money each month on top of what I make at my other task.
I normally & entirely trusting on my tenants & don’t do a credit or background check, however after an experience I had with a new tenant I am going to beginning right away. I have a young girl residing in one of my small houses & she seems like a nice normal girl. However, she has completely destroyed the heating & cooling system in my house. I went over to look at her washer & dryer last yearwhen I observed that the air conditioner filter hadn’t been changed. I asked her how often she was changing the filters & she just looked at me like a deer in the headlights. I knew that she had never changed the filter on the air conditioner & I was instantaneously nervous. When I opened up the Heating & Air Conditioning closet I saw a big puddle of water on the floor. This only happens when the line is clogged because the filter hasn’t been changed correctly. I tried to be nice & explain to her what happened, but she started to get unquestionably defensive with me, however she got unquestionably annoyed & said she was going to sue me for blaming it on her. Right then my buddy and I knew that this wasn’t going to labor out & she needed to move out right away.
