What Is The .... (by Me [CA]) Posted on: Sep 14, 2023 2:14 PM

What is the funniest, weirdest or grossest thing you've seen in a tenant's apartment?

We had a very prim and proper school teacher tenant a few years ago. During our yearly walk-through we noticed a pair of pink furry handcuffs and riding crop hanging from her headboard.

I tenant moved out and did a pretty good job of cleaning even. Looks looked fine. However, in the bathroom, there happens to be storage shelf with a little cubby that kinda tucks around the corner -- so it is easy to miss something in there. Inside, I discovered a, um, how do I put this... "pocket toy for men's pleasure" inside a box. (It was not brand new...)

We've found lots of other gross bits that are mostly just from lack of cleaning and such. But that would be the "item" that came to mind first. :)

Typo: I said "Looks looked fine." but meant "Things looked fine." --67.209.xxx.xx

Well, one time when I was showing a (still-occupied) house for rent - before I did periodic maintenance visits - I discovered that the man living there had an addiction to pornography. VHS tapes stacked high, everywhere, with very....Ummm.... Inappropriate photos on the covers. Close-ups.

No more showings until he was out!

But, even worse - "The Pooper".

He was in a low-rent motel before moving into the rooming house I used to have.

He spoke intelligently, said he'd be closer to grocery store he could walk to, etc.

Clearly he had a homeless mindset, didn't work well in this housing environment.

He smeared poop EVERYWHERE. Mattress, floor, dresser, walls, belongings that needed to be bagged & trashed. Never seen anything like it - and hope I never do again.

Clearly, he was a couple tacos short of a combo platter.

Thank fully, at the time, I had a lady I could hire who was a "tough old broad" : ) and she got right in there with gloves & took care of it.

After this, I changed my screening criteria to disallow someone with a representative payee. --68.229.xxx.xxx

An enhancement for men-a pump with directions in the drop ceiling. Many kids "hide" things there in school. Amazing how many need the bathroom when certain kids leave.. --73.230.xxx.xx

Bought a house at county auction sight unseen. From the outside we expected to need to gut it.What we didnt expect was so much garbage that we needed 6 thirty yard dumpsters,the guy was a hoarder, the porn alone would probably have filled a third of a dumpster --74.77.xx.xx

We also bought a house at auction. We were familiar with the house. It was a house in the neighborhood and we got to see the inside of the house before the auction because we first approached them to try to save their credit and they were amenable at that time.

Although the house itself wasn't all that clean, the house was in decent shape. Hardwood floors, buffets and artificial fireplace, a real 1920's beauty.

After getting the keys and papers from the bank, we walked into the place to find the former owners had taken open cans of paint and hoisted them up, all over the ceiling, buffet, fireplace and mantle , woodwork and hardwood floors. One entire bedroom had thick hand prints where the kids were allowed to put their hands in the paint and then on the walls. The prints were thick requiring sanding the walls down.

We expected there might be some things in the house left behind. Even though we had been able to do a good walk through of the place before the auction, we had no idea that 4 floors of everything left inside would take up a a long corner block as long as the house, backyard and detached 2 car garage of the house, and up to my waist high. --64.83.xxx.xxx

It is amazing when people that lose a place decide they will stick it to the next owner, or the bank.

Bought a repo place. I had walked thru it before hand. It was on a well so I checked the water pressure. Once I got the place there was no water at all. Hmm, seemed odd. Power to the pump still.

Turns out the guy pulled a piece of drywall off, put a shut off on the line and put the rock back on. It blended in since the guy was a make believe home repair guru. --107.147.xx.xxx

14” plecostamos catfish. Desiccated and flattened and to less than 1/4”, in the sectional sofa. Poor fish! --172.58.xxx.xxx

Old rotting Fish guts in the tub ranks pretty high.

They were not happy with me forcing them to pay and they showed it --24.101.xxx.xxx

Evicted a he/she with call the emergency hotline if you feel like you want more meth stickers on the fridge. Due to the craziness I encountered, doubt any calls were made. When I saw the gay porn mags etc and empty AIDS meds bottles I sent in the cleaners and stayed out for fear of infection. I was generous… told the cleaner dude and gal they could keep the porn mags and videos for themselves…Lol --172.56.xxx.xxx
