We also have tried renting houses to people.

Never, and I mean NEVER will we do that again.

I was on an expatriate project for a year and a half. Did not want to sell the house, wanted to come back to it.

Rented it to somebody who worked at the same company.

A member of our motorcycle club who lived nearby was a hard-nosed purchasing agent for a big company. I paid him fifty bucks / month, to stop by my house every month, give it a quick eyeball, collect the rent check, and deposit it in my bank account.

No problems. Everything worked out just fine. Maybe I was just lucky.



A mind is a terrible thing.

You more interested in price or terms if you sell?
I’m intrigued. Wife and I trade notes.

I am just a month shy of ten years as the tenant, renting a 3,500 sq ft. hangar at Our Little Airport.

At least once a year the owners take me out for dinner and a few beers, a few laughs, and swapping aviation stories, and they thank me for always getting the rent check to them on time with no prodding.

While I was on active duty, we rented all up and down the east coast. I was the same way, we fixed little stuff, and always paid rent on (or a day or two ahead of) time. We both must be "passive aggressive"?

Huh,

passive agressive is getting an email on the 10th of a month.

"The light bulb in the fridge is not working."

On the 15th

"the light bulb in the laundry room went out"

on the 20th

"the garage door opener battery died"

on the 25th

"the toilet flapper is causing a water leak, the city shut off our water till it is fixed"

on the 30th

" we have not eaten in 10 days, or drank any water in 5 because we can see what is in the fridge. Nor can we leave the house to get groceries, nor have we washed our clothes because we can't see in the laundry room. "

Our response on the 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 30th.

"2.1 The renters are responsible for wear items under 100 dollars in retail value. Such items include but not limited to lights, toilet parts, batteries for security sytems and garage doors."


And NO i am not fucking kidding about the email stream.

Complaint: "We have not eaten in 10 days."

Response: "I admire your self control. How much weight are you trying to lose?"

At that point, the bullshit is so deep what can you do. We just quote the lease agreement.

My wife and I are living in a rental house after being property owners from 1978 to 2015.
The owner wanted us to put a check in his account each month and I suggested we do a wire transfer which he accepted. We renewed the lease and he has now written that as form of payment he accepts.

I fix small thing and only tell him when he comes to town.
Our lease states we must change furnace filters each mouth and supplies them and I must trim palms away from side walk.
HOA sent a notice of some dead branches that needed to be trimmed. We had trimmed them and trash had hauled them away by the time the letters arrived. Owner called and told me he would be in town to take care of and I told him already done.
When we have a larger issue I call him and asks HOW ARE WE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF THIS ?

I treat the house and property like I own it and he seems to apricated it.
