Who are you, what's your business and why are you asking? You must have a good reason(s)for you to spend time posting a question like that on Topix. Boy, the stories I could tell you about what former tenants have done to me and tried to do to me and my properties over the past 15 years out here in the Mohawk Valley. My screening process is now so stringent that most people are turned away by me BEFORE any keys are handed out and any money is taken. Sorry, folks but that's how it has got to be. It's a matter of more that a few bad apples over the years making it harder for everyone else to get an apartment in this area. I would rather leave an apartment EMPTY indefinitely than rent to someone who is going to move in, stop paying their rent after a month or two, and do all kinds of damage to the property before I have to take them to court to get them out and to get a Small Claims judgment against them which will be there on their credit reports for up to a maximum of twenty years. For me personally, that would be quite a grey cloud to have to live under for two decades, but I realize alot of them just don't care. With a judgment on their record they will NEVER be able to get a mortgage on a home of their own, they'll have to pay sky-high interest rates on auto loans and credit cards if they can even find a bank that will grant them credit, and they can forget all about applying for unsecured personal loans. So when I have an apartment for rent the first question I ask a caller after getting his/her name, is ARE YOU WORKING? Do ALL OF your research on a prospective tenant BEFORE you take any money from them and hand them the keys!

What's her name so I can add her to my blacklist? Is she actually dying from something terminal or is that just another bullshit scam we're hearing about so often lately in the news? Lots of bullshit artists, scammers, deadbeats and debt-dodgers out here in the Mohawk Valley. Believe me, I know this from firsthand experience. Being a landlord in this area for many years has made me cynical, suspicious, and extremely cautious about who I will now rent to.

S.F. or S.C? They know just what to do and not do when it comes to playing the eviction "game"(to them it seems to be a game, until they run out of landlords who will rent to them and have to move out of the area). I swear they get together with friends and/or relatives and compare notes and techniques on how to screw a landlord for as long as posssible. Can you tell that I'm bitter? From now on I will be renting only to people who have full-time jobs or at least two part-time jobs, and who have had those jobs for at least six months to one year. If any other interested parties are turned down and want to claim discrimination, be my guest. Tough Shit!!! It's my property and I DON'T HAVE TO rent to anybody I decide is a risk and a potential problem tenant based on the information I get on them and from them PRIOR to handing them any keys. Signed, Sick and tired of the BULLSHIT!

The real problem is landlords think they are lords well your not if you would treat your tenats with the same respect they treat you and don't try to tell them how to live you wouldn't have these problems I know there are tenats that just screew landlords but in some of these cases if the land owner would take care of repairs and not be so greedy you would find a better class of tenate remember its the tenats that are paying your bills with there hard earned money every land owner I've ever delt with has been a greedy scum bag on a power trip get a life cause greed is a one way ticket to hell.

I dont know y anyone would pay 600 bucks to rent a apartment in a 40 to 50 grand apartment buildings . They could own it for less. Most of the slum lords around here need to clean up there act.

not all landlords are slummy, not all renters are bad. Karma is a bitch, you get what you get.

Don't rent to Lorie Sportello. She not only doesn't pay her rent, but she leaves the place a dirty mess!! Call the Herkimer Housing for a reference on her, they'll fill your ear full about how she was evicted from the projects & how dirty she left the place.

Every scum bag that does rent in Herkimer who is on public assistance in my opinion. Each that takes from the system pays the land lords last if they choose to actually pay. Unless the county pays direct, then they owe their friends and families.
