I recently experienced a renter from hell. I only have two tiny furnished apartments,
but sometimes I manage to get some unsavory characters as renters. Because the
apartments are tiny, I get more male renters then female since space is usually not

in need of lodging on this cold December evening when he knocked on my door.
To make a long story short- he proved problematic and unkind. I even had to call the
police because he was disturbing both the other renter and myself with his loud
antics. After I served him a 3 day notice to vacate, he one day soon after -seeing me
go to church on a Saturday evening decided to lock the hall door --intending to lock me
out of my own home! Luckily I had a key hidden so I was able to get in. My hell lasted
only until February when I was able to evict him.
