Tenant No 2 were also nice but desperate to find a place quickly me being nice I let them rent the place. They started paying late and then refused to do the home maintenance. Plus one time the toilet in the house backed up and they called me yelling and cursing at me to come and fix it. Needless to say it was their kids who stopped up my toilet. That was a $100 that I paid for. I was tired of them and they had to go so I got my lawyer to send them a letter stating they had to leave. In return they sued me for the security deposit. it took two years for us to go to housing court in new york. The outcome was out of the $2000. they gave me for security deposit I had to give them back $1000.00. To fix the the damage they did cost me just under $1000. I should have gotten the whole $2000 for repairs and aggravation .
Tenant No 3 the current ones. They have been checked and rechecked by my real estate agent before they moved in. They are a nice religious couple and when I visited them yesterday to sign the new lease . The wife offered coffee and lunch. They are keeping my house clean and neat. I have a good feeling about my present tenants let's just hope that I keep that feeling. So what do you think??
