9 Landlords Confess How Disgusting It Is To Have Tenants 

People are disgusting, filthy animals especially if they stay at someone else' place and they are paying. No one knows this feeling more than the landlords who open their heart and gates open for such horrible creatures. Below we have some of the funniest, rarest and disgusting tales from landlords who came in acquaintance with horrifying tenants.  I bet you'll shake your heads and fall off laughing hard.  Confessions via AskReddit

Chickens and a 24 inch swimming pool

I know this sounded surprising and shocking. Well, I was too when I went through this Reddit thread. The thread said: A friend of mine owned a three-story house. Got a call from the 2nd-floor tenants that water was coming through his roof. He went to the 3rd floor, and when the occupants opened the door, he could see one of those blow-up swimming pools in the living room. Not the little ones mind you but one of the big 24 inch thick ones. Not just this, the tenant had also removed all the kitchen cabinets, the doors and replaced them with chicken wire. They had a dozen chickens living in them.

Human poop everywhere! Disgusting!!

Another thread from all the others said: We had a tenant in a 40-year-old apartment, it was an apartment complex. She was a hoarder or something. She was evicted for failure to comply with certain provisions of their lease, and when we went to inspect the apartment, the smell was unbearable. There was poop everywhere, in every plumbing fixture. The toilet was full and was overflowing, the bathroom sink was full, the bathtub was half full, the kitchen sink, Everywhere. Not just poop but there was a pile of cigarette butts on the kitchen counter that they had just stub them out on the counter. It was difficult for us to rent it out again and to get rid of that smell.

Aha! Whatt...???

Here's the crappy story: We had a whole house being rented and once the tenants left we went to clean up after they left and what we found at the basement was scary. They had a dog that went in the basement to crap. Instead of cleaning it up they poured latex paint on it to seal in the smell. The dog kept pooping there and they kept pouring. A latex-dog poo lasagna filling an entire room.

No electricity. 

They refused to pay the electric bill and that is the end of the story. Then after we had their electricity disconnected, and they used a long pole to reconnect it. Like whoa!

Not a landlord, but.. 

There was an agreement in my lease that said that I am not allowed to have a pool inside the apartment nor can I build a campfire in the apartment. To think there is a reason that these specifically are in a lease amazes me.

Concrete. Argh!!!

I had a tenant pour concrete down the drains. There was no repair possible. It was literally more cost-effective to demolish than rebuild.

Lazy people are the worst. 

A dude came in with his family and they decided to overload the dishwasher till it broke. Yes, we had a guy come into check it and he said that he needs to replace a part that they broke.

There was paint everywhere. 

My last landlord told me a story about a tenant that painted his motorcycle with a can (a rattle can,) in the apartment. He left tiny little black dots of paint over the entire surface in the apartment. He did not leave the carpet too.

The cat lady

A colleague of mine evicted a cat lady. They found around 20+ cats the first day and then kept finding more cats for like a week. Every day that he would come in he would find more than the last time.
