8 Great Tenant Excuses.... NOT!
"Have you even watched the news lately? The country is in big trouble and millions of people are out of work- including me! Do you think the whole world revolves around your rent?" I said: No, but your whole world does as of NOW. Here's your eviction notice. - Johnny J., Levittown, NY
"My husband's car burned up on the highway. The rent was in the car. It was cash."
"I'm sorry, I paid my credit cards first. I'd much rather pay your late charge than theirs." This is why the late fees have to hurt enough to prioritize the rent payment. - John@TheLPA
"I have relatives who want to help me purchase the house." The house is not for sale. I asked for the rent. - Submitted by Mercedes, NY
"The kitchen sink is clogged. This house needs new pipes." Under the lease, the tenant is responsible for ALL PLUMBING STOPPAGES. If they would stop dumping grease and vegetables into the kitchen sink drain (they don't realize we don't have a garbage disposal), we wouldn't be constantly having this problem. - Lydia K., NY
"I haven't abandoned the premises, I've just moved out." Well, sounds reasonable to me.....NOT!! The lawyer has been contacted and proceeding to the next step. - Submitted by Pam, Marion, Ohio
"The dishwasher didn't work when I moved in and I know I'm not gonna get my security back so I'm living it out." He knows he's not getting his security back because he trashed the home. - Willi N., New Port Richie, FL
