It is a tough business I assure you. Once you place an ad in the paper or sign on your lawn, the first thing to expect are state workers posing as potential tenants trying to get you on discrimination charges.
Once past that, you have to figure out who is going to be a good tenant and who isn't. Because of fair housing laws, landlords cannot use their own instincts. They have a person(s) apply that meet the financial criteria, but because of the applicants attitude, demonstration of ignorance, or their inability to control their children, you can face an expensive world of hell if you don't rent to them.
But if you can get past that, now the city of Maple Heights demands they inspect the apartment, the basement, the attic, and everything outside before they will allow you to rent to anybody. Of course, they always find something, and that holds up the works.
But now you repaired what the city required, you have a tenant(s) and you paid the $75.00 for the city inspection. You have to come up with another $50.00 for an occupancy permit which has to be renewed every year for each tenant.
The bottom line is, having rental property is like any other business; supposedly a good thing. That is until government comes and Fk's it all up. My part-time job as a landlord would be wonderful without government interference.
I don't know if Bedford has the same laws and rules as Maple Hts. particularly an occupancy permit. I have known a couple of decent hard working people who have had monstrous bad breaks and ended up on the wrong side of the Bedford tracks and lived in deplorable places and paid deplorably high rent for basic s-hit holes. It seemed as though the landlords did use their instincts and smelled desperation and upped the rent. The places they lived in were as creepy and crawly as a rat's nest. Any complaints about windows not closing, mold, broken locks, filthy wet carpet, were ignored and never fixed. Please understand, I am not singly out landlords only. A friend of mine bought 3 houses in Cleveland in the 80's with the intent of having them rentals. He painted, carpeted, put in appliances, although not top of the line, but new. Within a year he was close to a nervous breakdown trying to deal with the complaints and also the destruction and theft of his properties. He couldn't wait to sell, even at a loss, and get out of that business. God Bless you that you can handle it. Most people can't. And I'm talking both sides of the dotted line.

I 'wonder' how many white people tossed out their Stevie Wonder CD's and tapes since his ban on Florida? And I wonder how many people in Florida are actually heart-broken that he won't be performing there until they change the laws so that black kids in hoodies will be allowed to run ramped?

Okay. I agree. That one is funny. I'm getting a little of Flo, but at least she is not a foul mouthed homophobic hypocritical aggressive pig like Baldwin.They might wear the same size clothes though.

Hey Annie, you ever notice that on a lot of tv commercials where they show like a thief trying to break into a house or someone trying to steal something, it's never a black and always a white? I guess that would be racist, right?

And commercials that have two people where one's the smart person and the other one's the dummy that acts stupid and the smart one's always portrayed by a black? The dummy being the white guy or the guy acting goofy.

And what about all these commercials coming out where they show a white woman or girl with a black husband or boyfriend? There's a Toyota commercial with a couple kids sitting in the back seat being driven to a dance or something, there's the cereal commercial with the white woman and a bi-racial daughter and a black husband, and there was a bank commercial with a white woman and black husband sitting at a table in a restaurant. You never see a white guy with a black girl. I wonder why that is? Isn't that racist to just show it one way?

Odd how much these stories on white murders get quieted up real fast but you accidentally bump into a black and it's racial and on the news for the next 20 years.
Good point made! In addition, they never boycotted NJ for the home invasion of a black man that invaded a home of a 21 y/o and 100 lb young white mother with her children present ( June 2013) and started beating her like a boxer will hit a pushing-bag, then started kicking her and finally pushed her down the stairs of the apartment before taking some jewelry and money. This was filmed by a nanny cam! This is (textbook example) when "Stand your Ground" applies, and when a home owner should use lethal force for self protection. I think that everyone should be a Zimmerman if they want to survive in 21st century America!

Well, as you know, the black man likes the white girl (mostly blond hair- natural color or not) to show them as a "status symbol". Some sort of luxury or ego of the black man, also called "The great white hope". However, the white man showing up a black girl, after the black man do not even want to know about them, or rejected them as usually they do, is not exactly a luxury item that any white man have in mind. However, there are some exemptions to this luxury item rule! There are some black girls much better and educated than many white girls (trailer trash chicks) with tattoos in their bodies. By the way, black women do not tattoo their bodies because it will be hard to see it.

I've seen plenty of black girls with tattoos. You can't see them very well, but they have tattoos.

A black person getting a tattoo is as funny as a black woman wearing a blonde wig.

Black guys who lure white women do so for status and nothing else. Since most black men desire white women, those who are successful use it as a novelty and to flaunt their accomplishment to their black friends.

You seldom see white guys with black women. Most interracial couples are black guys with white women.

I've seen many black girls with tattoos also. All black girls aren't dark, some are lighter skinned. But even the darker ones have tattoos. Look at all the black male athletes that have tattoos. A lot of them have very dark skin and have tattoos.

I also feel that black men going out with white women is just a status to them. And the white girls are too stupid to realize what's going on.

I think our 'elected' President wants to change laws to help out his race when it comes to people defending themselves. That's White people defending themselves. I feel that by commenting like he has about this Treyvon situation, he caused more damage to race relations than we had in years. He's brought us back to the 1950s' and 60s'. And Sharpton and Jackson both never left the 50s' and 60s'.
All this Treyvon crap is good for is just something for blacks to go start riots and hate white people more. But if they want to blame someone, if they could open their eye and see what's actually going on, they'd find out that the only ones they have to blame are themselves. How's that, you blacks reading this ask? For starters, how many hooded little thug wanna bes are out there that don't have daddies at home? How many mamas out there just have kids to collect more welfare money? How many black parents out there open their doors and let their kiddies go outside in the world and do whatever they want to do? And how many mamas out there don't take responsibility when their kiddies are accused of some crime? "Not MA keed! He uh GOOD boay! He downe dos NUTTIN!" Yeah! And the moon's really made of cheese. You blacks want this race crap fixed? Fix it yourselves and start with your kids! Teach them respect for others, black, white, brown, pink or green, and respect for themselves. If you see them buying Robitussin, a can of iced tea and Skittles, kick their a$$ and throw that grape drank crap out! That stuff will kill them. And look up the laws and teach them right from wrong and keep them away from the real street thugs. And stop doing drugs when you get pregnant because then the kids come shooting out of you with mental and physical problems like so many have in Maple Hts. My GOD! Every time I get in the car and go down Libby or Broadway, I don't know how many blacks I see walking down the street that look like they should be in mental wards or they walk like their legs have been broken and never reset. But, from what I see and know about the blacks that live around me, if they were to read what I just posted, they'd be just saying 'here's another racist whitey. Well, if I'm a racist, I had a lot of help from the residence of Maple Hts and Cleveland!
A white woman was recently charged with murder because her 8 month old baby boy died because of her toxic drug riddled breast milk. Trash is trash. I agree with you,however. It starts with the parents. Usually trash parents breed trash kids. More accurately, single trash mothers who don't even know their babies daddy's name are the worst criminals. I hear it's an automatic $750.00 a month per baby born. That doesn't count food stamps, HUD housing, WIC, free medical, formula, day care, lunches, education and a little extra for extras. It don't matter if you're black or white.

The blacks go by word of mouth. One who's working and collecting welfare benefits tells another black on how to do it and from that, it spreads like cockroaches.

Too bad all the white people couldn't stand up and say that they're tired of having to pay large tax amounts which most goes to welfare and food stamps.

When you think of the billions of dollars that's put away for those 'benefits', and then the billions for war machines, and more millions for Obama's vacations, I have to wonder where all this money comes from. I heard something like only around 43% of the people pay taxes. The rest are either retired and on S.S. and/or pensions, and the rest are on 'free-bee' benefits. One day it's going to run out and then what will the blacks do? Oh...I know....rob the white working people! So, in other words, everything will stay the same! LOL!

When you rob Peter to pay Paul, the Paul's of your society generally have no objections.

Currently, over half of our population lives partially or entirely off the federal government. And BTW, your figure about people not paying federal income tax is incorrect. It's not 43%, but 47%.

White people DID stand up and say we're tired of paying for lifelong food stamp and welfare recipients. The result was the Welfare Reform Act which was a tremendous success. It was led by Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, and the newly Republican led Congress forced Clinton to sign it in spite of his two vetoes before.

By cutting spending and bringing more taxpayers into the system, it eventually led to a federal surplus. Today, we have the exact opposite. We have a President who invites people to leach off the system and we certainly don't have a surplus--we have a record high 17 trillion dollars in debt.

The problem we face today is that it's financially more advantageous to live off of taxpayers than it is to work. In NYC for example, welfare recipients earn more living on government plans than that of a school teacher just entering the field of work. Something is seriously wrong with a social safety net system where the non-working do better than the working.

I think I've wrote this before but not sure if it was here or another topic, but I have a personal situation with welfare going on myself. Please skip it if you've already read it.

I am currently evicting one of my tenants. They are way behind on rent and are doing nothing to remedy the situation. This is an unmarried couple with two children and trying to live on one not so impressive income to support this family of four.

The mother of the children handles all of the financial transactions obviously because I've seldom talked to the actual renter which is her boyfriend.

I''ve given them several warnings about their failure to pay rent on time, and those time frames keep getting larger and larger. When I finally told the girlfriend I'm pulling the plug, she begged me not to do so.

I'm willing to give anybody a chance provided they are trying to do something. In this case, the family has three smokers including their 15 year old daughter. They have cable television, Obama phones, high speed internet, three cats and a very large dog. Plus they receive $250.00 in food stamps every month.

I met these people through one of my more successful tenants. They told me that the reason the woman won't get a job, or the male won't work more hours is because they don't want to risk losing their food stamps. To keep that federal benefit coming, they are willing to lose the roof over their heads and being thrown out into the streets.

My situation with my tenants is not isolated. These types of things are going on all the time.

Sounds to me like these tenants feel that everyone owes them, the government and you to, xxx. They feel the gov needs to help them because of their low income. And you need to help them because .... of their low income.

I'm like you, if I were the landlord, I'd try to work something out with them too but you can only do so much. After all, you have the apartments to rent out to make money, not to have people live there for free.

Just a thought, how handy is this boyfriend of the girl living there? Do you have much of a lawn there? Who cuts the grass, takes out the garbage, sweeps hallways, if there's any? Since he works little hours, would it be freezable to let him do these chores? If not, I'd give them the boot.

In your lease agreement, is there anything saying after two missed payment, the tenant will we evicted? Or is there a law saying you can't take action for so many months?

All my tenants have month-to-month leases. They can leave at anytime, or I can cancel their lease at anytime.

In my lease, there is a clause that states rental collections more than seven days late requires a ten dollar per day charge. They never paid that either.

When the mother of the children tried to negotiate with me, I told her of my concerns. I told her that our priorities are much different. My first priority is to bring home money. My second is to keep a roof over my head. Cable television, cigarettes, internet services, multiple pets, all preside over their obligation to pay rent. My priority list is much different than theirs.

She stays at home supposedly to home school their children. I'm a supporter of home schooling, but not at the expense of not paying bills such as rent.

The answer to their problem is quite simple really. Either he gets a part-time job working weekends, or she can enroll her children in public school and daycare for the four year old and get a full-time job herself. That's two incomes, way too much to ask of any American. At the very least, get rid of the four pets they are feeding and purchasing kitty litter for while taxpayers are stuck with the bill feeding their family.

They have done none of these things. They continue to display irresponsibility at every corner. Hell, his evection court date was last Friday, and he didn't even bother showing up!

I only give breaks to people who are actually trying--not those trying to use me as they have our safety net system. Because I cannot accept rent until they are gone, they are ordering pizzas, going to the store nearly every day or evening, smoking more than I've ever seen them smoke before. Why not? They're not paying rent, so use the money they have for all these other goodies.
