I had walls that had immense holes in them, & a ceiling that was falling down from a still running bathtub.
I had been considering selling the home building I had owned for several years; I was exhausted of all the labor that goes with being a landlord! Not only do I spend our savings for all the repairs, however many times i end up paying for the repairs that happen when the tenants walk out! Last week, I had a tenant transfer out in the middle of the night, & I didn’t guess they were moving, but there were no forwarding addresses, & I was out for many weeks’ rent. They had kicked the basement door in & I needed a replacement door; Once I got inside the house, I was flabbergasted. The basement wasn’t the only location that needed replacement doors, every door in the condo had been torn from the hinges. I had to call a window replacement supplier because most of the windows were broken. It floored myself and others to guess that someone could do this much damage to someone’s property. Once I found someone who did replacement windows & doors, I had to call someone who did general contracting. I had walls that had immense holes in them, & a ceiling that was falling down from a still running bathtub. I never thought a single of our tenants would be so ignorant to leave a condo in this state of disrepair. The worst section of the clean-up, wasn’t even the replacement of doors & windows, or needed a general contractor. I had to hire someone to exterminate the rodents, bedbugs, & roaches. I guess it may have been cheaper to have the condo condemned & build a modern a single.
