This landlord decided to not let it slide
Renting an apartment has quite a few advantages. You’re not responsible for covering major repairs and don’t have the same financial risks as the owners. However, there are quite a few rules and regulations you have to follow as a renter. Such as: some landlords don’t allow you to have pets and there’s usually restrictions on how much you can actually change in the house. It makes sense of course; the owners often completely renovate the places to be able to get the most money out of happy renters. But what happens when someone moves into your place and does awful things to it?
That’s exactly what happened to the landlord in this story. This time he couldn’t let it go because he didn’t want to give them the satisfaction of having walked all over him. The disrespectful renters got what was coming for them when this landlord decided to get the ultimate revenge.
The search for trustworthy renters
Thomas Ravaux was a proud landlord who had renovated his new home with the utmost care. It was a long project, but after lots of hard work he was ready to find renters for his pride and joy. The hunt for renters led him to a young couple with three children. He knew that the protocol for renting a home was pretty straightforward.
The only thing he would have to do was write a good contract. Once this was done and the renters agreed, they would be able to move in.
No red flags in sight
Thomas was convinced that he had found good, trustworthy renters. The couple seemed friendly and the children clearly had good manners. Thomas saw these as signs that he had made the right choice. It didn’t appear that there were any red flags when he signed the contract with the family.
