There may be a point in the process of renting your home that you may not realize that you are beginning to lose control and turning that control over to a deceptive human scum. Pay attention the whole entire time to be sure that you are still the one in charge. In the words of Aldo, "The LL is in charge the tenant is not". Be sure to keep it that way. Another smart LL, plenty, says don't give away your power. That is a concept that my slow brain is starting to learn.

Yes! And here is where courage comes into the picture. One year Courage was the theme of the MRLL Convention. When you get the gut feeling, when the yellow flags start waving... There is the easy choice or the choice that keeps one a victim and the choice that takes real courage. Oh boy do I remember the first time I had to find that courage! After that it just surfaces so fast that other's can't keep up and wonder where did that come from cause they didn't expect it. Courage to say YES, courage to say NO. Your courage. You will never substitute anyone else courage for your own. I'm understanding that there was a point in the process you realized you should turn back but didn't... Gotta find that courage to do justice for your business, your house, your hard work. If keys are given, now have the courage to enforce your agreement to protect your investment. That's all you can do now. And that courage will not be waived by the residents words, only their actions and what you know as facts. Courage to enforce your Lease, you know you got excellent paperwork. And you know when they are leading your astray. Courage to run your business. Who cares what they think. You are still being YOU. Nice. Fair. As you have the courage to be that to yourself.
