God damnit, I was so close to evicting my douchebag tenant, as most of you read from my previous blog entry, I’m evicting my tenant.
Unfortunately, she managed to scrape together the funds she needed in the nick of time, so she managed to remove herself from the 2 months arrears bracket, which would have give me valid grounds to start an eviction process!
I should be happy she paid, but I’m genuinely not because I’ve realised that she’s just a horrible human, and she’ll definitely cause me problems again. It’s in her vampire blood.
Two days ago I received a text message from my tenant, she said she will “definitely” pay rent on Friday (today), after a 29 day delay.
Right, famous last words.
This morning I received a text from her at 11am saying, “it’s in“,
She’s not one for words.
I assumed she meant her rent was deposited into my account. I’m also sure she intended to apologise for the delay in payment, too, but you know, it must have slipped her mind….or something.
It’s funny, in our previous conversations, prior to this whole incident, she never used to be lost for words, but since she hasn’t been keeping up with her rent payments, she’s had very little to say.
I get the impression she hates me after all this. Heaven forbid, the mean old landlord started chasing rent after it’s 4 weeks late!!
Of course, the problems don’t end here. She’s taken so long to pay rent (29 days late), that she’s pretty much lapsed her payments and now the next rent payment is due on Monday. Brilliant.
We’ll see what happens.
For anyone that’s just jumping straight into this blog post, there’s a good chance you might be gobsmacked by my horrendous attitude. I just to clarify that you’ve joined me at the butt-end of an ongoing saga, which essentially involved my tenant constantly lying and breaking promises, failing to communicate, and just generally being rude.
I don’t take evictions lightly and I firmly believe it should be the last resort. But when you’re dealing with someone completely unreasonable and is showing all the classic signs of a tenant from hell, there’s very little choice but to practise self-preservation.
Over and out xo
