For all of the landlords on here, the good ones are few and far between.
My last landlord was always on and off about wanting the basement back for him and his family so said I need to get a place by May, so I had one by April 1st.
Now I've come to find that in the end, he couldn't afford it and got new renters and I know I can cause problems for him if I go to the board, there is a section on that site specifically for this happening.
Maybe I'll just let it go and not bother, but that place is a dump, full of mould, exhaust in the bathroom doesn't (and never did) work, no CO detector, defective smoke detectors... the list goes on.
New place? Tenants above me are quiet, don't care how loud I am really, landlord actually has people come and do the lawn care and all of that, apartment is nice, no complaints etc.
It took a damn long time (6+ months) to find this place. 90% of the places I saw were definitely illegal apartments, with 80% of them being like 2-3 separate apartments in a basement... beyond ridiculous.
For you landlords on here that actually do what your supposed to do, how hard is it? My plan when I buy a home is to rent the basement out so I'm constantly reading up on legal issues and such. Have you guys ever had a tenant from hell? What did you do?
