Tell Us Now: 17 Bonkers Landlord Stories
We asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “What's your most bonkers landlord story?” and we're beginning to think a better question may be, “Has anyone ever had a decent landlord?”
Being a landlord seems like a pretty easy deal for those that can afford it: You get rent money on top of your real estate investment. Not a bad little bit of padding for your bank account and portfolio (portfolio is a financial word, right?) At the very least, you are required to keep the place well-maintained and be a civil person, but that seems like a nearly impossible ask. Repair things on time, but be nice? Way too big of an ask. Be nice, but repair things? Absolutely not. Suddenly kick out longtime residents because you decided to live there instead? Why the hell not!
The “lord” part of “landlord” is kind of a dead giveaway. As evidenced by these 17 horror stories.
