I can't believe that some people rent out houses and wont let the tenents work on them to make them liveable. My daughter rents a place from someone and it is in deplorable condition. The landlord was suppose to fix it up and let them work on some things but now have changed their minds and don't want them to work on it because it will make the taxes go up. I say if you can't afford the taxes then you shouldn't own it. They own another house that they live in and fixed it up but this place should be condemed.

I completely agree!
The house next door to me is totally nasty!!(but that is because the lady that lives there is nasty too!!!) The grass has only been mowed 1 time this year and the yard is always full of trash.
Everytime it storms, shingles blow off their roof into my yard. The steps to the top apartment are so wobbly, Im surprised they haven't fell off the house. But the landlords don't want them to fix anything!!! They are slum lords too!!!

Why would your daughter rent the place on a promise to fix things up??? Get it in writing, that way the landlord can be held accountable.

Would you mean the slumlord that runs properties into the ground until their condemned and become an eyesore?

Drives a Cadillac?

City has a condemnation notice on a door as we speak at a property downtown Wilmington?

Could it be that some of the people who have lived there be nasty? Some people just do not care and trash the places they rent. But I have lived in places where the landlord just doesn't give a crap if you have heat or not, thats when you take them to court. I did and I won. They didn't get the rent until it was fixed. I just had to give my rent money the court and it wasnt released until it was fixed.

If a place is a dump - don't move in. Look for a proper place to live and plan to pay a fair price for it. You get what you pay for. And Nora is correct: If the landlord doesn't do his job you can go to court.

Seriously are u retarded or what? Tom has MS and is bed ridden, when he bought all them houses he wasn't expecting to not be able to walk before he was 60yrs old. He doesnt have any money because he's spent it all on medical care and to live since he's not been able to work. He couldn't get any medicade or social security or anything because he owned all them houses so he basically got screwed and Debbie is pretty much the nicest person anyone could ever meet and would help anyone if she could. She's been taking care of Tom all these years by herself and if anyone knows Tom they know he's a handful to deal with even before the MS. I don't know to much about Jody but u do realize that Justin, Tom and Debbies other son is "Lieutenant" Justin Drake of the Clinton County sheriff's dept right? So I'm kinda doubting the drug thing I don't think he'd be that stupid.... So maybe next time u talk bad about someone you might wanna know ur facts, I'm sure ur just mad they evicted u or something so what's ur name? Let's post names of deadbeat renters!
