Rental Property

I think I've mentioned on this blog before that I own a rental house.  And that it's not been an easy road...

This past tenant was the worst tenant I've ever had.  She moved in in May, and left in October.  I think I MAYBE got a total of 3 months rent during that 6 month period.  And when she left, she left a mess.  One of the worst messes I've ever seen in a rental property....  See for yourself:

She spilled two candles down the wall onto the carpet.  And left trash everywhere.  I had to replace the entire carpet.

There are cigarette butts and ashes all over the bedroom carpet, blue smeary stuff on the carpet, and even a carseat in the bathroom.

She broke a window.

The kitchen was a site all it's own.  Food everywhere, and really disgusting.  The food in the refrigerator was left in there with the door shut and the power had been off.  All spoiled to say the least.

These bags were after two hours of ONLY picking up trash.  This doesn't count the bags outside.  It was just awful.

UGH!  It's finally cleaned and ready to re-rent.  So I can do it all over again...............

Oh dear! My sincere commiserations! We have a rental property and a good property manager. So far, the two tennants that we've had have been great. I hope you have better tenants in future.

That's appalling that someone could treat your home like that. I would have been so angry!

Here's hoping you get a better class of tenant next time.
