Thought I'd share a couple of lighter (?) moments about being a Landlord... and would love to hear stories/experiences from other self-managing Landlords Murphy's Law #1 Your best tenant will get a job transfer during the worst rental market of the decade Murphy's Law #2 When a tenant attempts to fix the leaky tap himself, expect to not only replace the tap but the entire plumbing system too! Murphy's Law #3 A tenant's uncanny ability to see dirt and damage will be much greater when thay move in than when they move out. Murphy's Law #4 When a tenant calls and says "Hi, how's it going?" you know that something is drastically wrong Murphy's Law #5 Proper disposal of bacon grease for a tenant is always down the kitchen sink.
