Read the Fine Print, Buttlick

Do all tenants suck or just mine?

First of all, they weren't supposed to be renters. This was supposed to be a friggin LEASE PURCHASE, until these lovely people decided to wait until the day before closing to back out.

However, they decided to forego all monies earned towards closing costs to opt out of the purchase and continue on as tenants.

Today, I got the following letter in lieu of November's rent:

This is to let you know that we will be moving at the end of November. Please use part of the $1000. deposit you have from us for the November rent. When i drop the keys off i let you know where to sent the remaning $350.00 to.

Thank you

Yeah, right! Nice try. So, I cussed a bit, regrouped, and pulled the guy's file. This is first Special Stipulation on the Lease/Purchase Agreement:

Buyer to pay seller $1000 deposit (not to be held in escrow) which will count toward buyer's down payment at closing. If buyer is unable to close, seller will retain deposit regardless of reason for termination.

All nice, neat, and initialed. Sooo...I'm right, he's wrong. I'll still never see the money, and there's no telling what he's done to the place.

No, pretty much all tenants suck...I had girls move in and buy drugs from one of their neighbors. There was a brea-in, I wonder why?! So, I bought a 2 new windows and then they moved out inbetween thanksgiving and christmas, leaving me without renters for a month and a half. Too bad most states favor tenants because of the power relationship. The problem is that there is no power differential here. I am a 26 yr old law student and I am broke. Thanks for the bias judiciary!!
