    Own property and been renting it out in Florida for three years now. I'm sure we have freepers that have done this for decades and even some that got out of it. 1) We see the renter that asks? Do you accept Section 8? Aside from what that might allow, does section 8 allow for payment of last month rent. Is the security deposit in anyway dictated by that govt program? 2) We see potential tenants tell us about 'service animals' that we must take and allow in. We read that at least in Florida the statute does not allow...
  • Kamala Harris’s Rent Subsidy Would Help Landlords, Not Renters

    National Review ^ | 08/02/2018 | Jibran Khan
    By distracting attention from real solutions, it can make the housing shortage worse. Senator Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) has proposed a subsidy for renters, responding no doubt to the skyrocketing rents in the Bay Area. The sheer cost of living there has made it difficult for companies to attract talent; indeed, rents in faraway suburbs are priced like downtown rents elsewhere. This is a very real problem, and its recognition on the national stage is not unwelcome. But Harris’s subsidy won’t improve the situation, and could even make things worse by drawing attention away from actual solutions. The Bay Area’s...

    Landlord’s failure to respond or defend puzzles observers ATLANTA, Georgia––A $4.25 million default judgment issued on June 1, 2018 against Atlanta landlord Jonathan Kent Hart, 61, for an August 26, 2016 pit bull attack may be the biggest yet in which the victim is believed to be likely to collect at least a substantial part of the money. But further litigation is expected, while defendant Hart’s lack of response to the case perplexes observers. Victim Nakisa Shavon Hiles, 40, formerly Nakisa Hiles Wilkerson, had just rented a room at 1572 Montreat Avenue SW, Atlanta, according to court filings, and “was...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/11/2018 | Ed Straker
    The great things about liberals is that even though most have never run a business, they all know exactly how businesses should be run.  It's as if all those courses they took at Amherst or Yale on women's studies, art history, and neo-colonialism gave them an intuitive sense for market forces, and exactly how much businesses should pay employees, exactly how much in taxes businesses should pay, and how to run every aspect of their companies. It's hardly surprising, then, to find an exposé in the Washington Post focusing on Fox News commentator Sean Hannity.  Hannity spent millions of dollars to...

    Dustin Guess was working outside on a hog fence Thursday morning, he says, when two pit bulls began their attack. But the two adult dogs — one male and one female — weren’t going after the man from West Fork, Arkansas. Instead, they were targeting Guess’ 4-year-old son, Matthew, according to Fox6. The female pit bull sunk its teeth into Matthew’s legs and started to drag him, police say, while the male dog attacked the toddler’s face. Guess told KNWA that he started to sprint toward his son with the hopes of separating him from the two vicious dogs. It’s...

    California’s Democrat-dominated legislature passed a measure that would make it illegal for landlords to report tenants suspected of being in the country illegally, and would also allow illegal alien tenants to sue their landlords over any violations of code. According to the San Jose Mercury News, the bill’s author, David Chiu (D-San Francisco), says AB291— the “Immigrant Tenant Protection Act”— is about protecting the rights of tenants ostensibly endangered by the threat of Trump’s enforcement efforts:

    Q13 FOX News ^ | March 24, 2017 | BY HANA KIM
    A lawsuit in Seattle pits some fundamental rights against each other — it’s civil rights that ban discrimination, and property rights that allow owners to decide what to do with their homes and land. The issue is with a new law that requires landlords to rent to tenants on a “first come, first served” basis. The goal is to make sure all renters are treated equally. But the landlords who are suing say the program is a bureaucratic nightmare and unconstitutional. Critics say it’s all about the survival of the fastest, but supporters say it levels the playing field for...

    A Brooklyn woman decapitated her neighbor, a mother of four, as she begged for her life — and scattered the body parts across two Long Island counties, authorities said Thursday. “No, Lee! No, Lee! What you doing? Oh no! Oh no! . . . I’m sorry, I’m sorry,” were the last words that Chinelle LaToya Thompson Browne cried out to Leah Cuevas, 42, during a July 5 fight over the rent, according to prosecutors.

    Janet Sluizer knew she was taking a bit of a chance when she turned to Craigslist this summer to find a tenant for her apartment in the Mission.What she didn't expect was that she'd be spending thousands of dollars in a struggle to evict a roommate who she says hasn't paid rent beyond the first month. "This is a nightmare,"Sluizer said. It's a nightmare that landlord advocates say is all too common in SanFrancisco, where 64 percent of residents rent. .....According to [Janan]New[executive director of the San Francisco Apartment Association], a combination of confusing rent ordinances and an abundance of...

    I know some of you guys gave me a hard time when I shared the story of my buddy who rented a room in a house in Nashville and fell behind on his rent (though good faith discussions with the landlady were in progress) and then when gone a couple of weeks all of a sudden found his stuff taken to storage and the landlady's lawyer demanding a ransom for it. You said my buddy ought to suck it up, not try to "legally steal" from the landlady, and such. If you're still of the same opinion and don't want...

    A landlord has blocked off his plush £1m home with ten skips to stop his tenants from leaving without paying the £15,000 he claims they owe him. Businessman Simon Everingham says he has been in a constant battle for £3,000-a-month rent since the occupants of his four-bedroom 18th century farmhouse in Markington, near Harrogate, North Yorkshire, fell behind with the payments last November. He barricaded the American tenants Dan and Christina Herring in by blocking the drive on Monday and the fight to stop them leaving continued today. They work at the controversial Menwith Hill U.S. spy base nearby but...

    I don't want to be some sort of conspiracy nut, but I paid my rent on 2/29/10. To this day, my landlord has not deposited this check. I will owe another check and pay it today. I've mentioned it to him (three times now) and he says he has to ask "the boss" which is his wife. I can't figure it out; my landlord is an electrician who has not been on a paying gig since May of last year since construction here in S. Utah is nonexistent right now. Last week when I had to call him on a...

    When her husband left for war, newlywed Nicole Buonanno hung a time-honored tribute in his honor — a flag with a blue star, a symbol since World War I that a loved one in the military is in harm's way. Now the young bride is in trouble with her Tucson landlord, who wants the tribute taken down from the balcony of the couple's east-side apartment. On Wednesday, Buonanno received written notice from the management of Finisterra Luxury Rentals that she had 24 hours to remove the offending banner. She put it up on Jan. 4 — the day her husband,...

    The subject of James Love's precarious health came up one day last winter when his landlord was chatting with Love's wife about a leaky faucet. Barbara Thomas, who rents a home to the couple and their six children in Sleepy Hollow, asked Shira Love what her husband needed to avoid kidney dialysis. Born with sickle cell anemia, he had endured years of excruciating pain and renal failure. Shira Love told Thomas that he desperately needed a kidney but that it was hard to find a match because of his O-positive blood type. "The second Shira said James needed a kidney,...
