If you canít deny your ESA folks for whatever reason, double check their letters against websites like Course Hero. I had 2 fakes in the last month from this website. They look legit at first glance until you start digging. There may be many more websites, but this one might be a more popular website since both letters came from it from 2 totally unrelated prospects for different rental units in different towns. Just a heads up. --24.152.xxx.xx

What does it have to do with ESA letters?

No clue what it has to do with ESA letters unless they were written by someone on there for the prospective tenants. We were able to track them back to there.

Ken, that may work at sometimes for me, but I donít want dogs in any multi units. So this will probably often pop up. --24.152.xxx.xx

Message:

Why bother? Well, if a tenant applies and goes through the process and everything checks out except the fake ESA letter they just gave you to sneak their dog in without paying the fee, they lied to you. Why wouldnít you reject at that point? --24.152.xxx.xx

Sure enough, I typed in emotional support and an ESA letter popped up in the first square. There are dozens of others letters to choose from, some are for LLs and others colleges. --24.101.xxx.xxx

Yeah, it looks like some "entrepreneurial" person had the thought to list fake ESA letter "examples/samples" on the Course Hero site (which, normally, is used for selling school work).

So, it isn't that Course Hero themselves are faking letters -- they just provide a site (sorta like "EBay for homework") that others are listing these on.

I agree it is a good idea to follow up a bit with the letters. At least make sure that the healthcare provider exists and such.

Thatís where I nailed them John. Healthcare provider didnít even exist. --24.152.xxx.xx

Indeed.

I do find it a bit funny though. I mean, based on other posts you have made about not worrying about permits or the rules... Aren't these people just doing exactly what you suggest that landlords do? Forget about the rules and just get your pet in there! Forget what the law says, get some fake ESA letters up for sale to make some money!

How come when you don't get a permit and just work around the problem because you don't think anyone should be able to tell you what to do it is a good thing? But when a tenant doesn't get their permit and just works around the problem, it is a bad thing?

Well since you want to turn this into an argument for no reason John Iíll be your huckleberry. Because itís my house and I want the best tenant. If they are lying during the screening process they deserve to be rejected for not following the rules. And theyíre not even my rules. Plus, me not getting a permit doesnít affect anybody because I know what Iím doing. --174.240.xxx.xxx

NE, permits aren't really to make sure you did it right, although some inspectors really do know what they are doing. Permits are to make money for the governing body. --173.18.xx.xxx

I agree 100% WMH. Plus, not asking permission to work on my own property is world away from providing me with fraudulent documents to Effectively steal from me and live in my property without paying for established fees for animals like all my other tenants do if they have them.. --24.152.xxx.xx

I for one am a firm believer that rules don't apply to me. I'm an ** type (although there's really only one **) Rules and laws -- well they're more suggestions. When the judges ask what part of the law should she uphold ?? -- the "LL's" or the "tenants" part?? -- well of course--- the tenants part? Dumb question judge.

These phony docs are more concerning to me when it comes to income doc's. --108.239.xx.xx

Itís not hypocrisy. I run the risk of getting caught just like the tenants. Iím avoiding and theyíre lying. Huge difference, but still not hypocrisy. --24.152.xxx.xx

Another vote for not hypocrisy. Apples and oranges. Permits are 90% to add to the municipality's coffers. Enjoy your gov, John. --64.246.xxx.xxx

Message:

Of course you don't think it is hypocrisy. Hypocrites never do.

It's not just permits. I've seen LLs do the same sorts of things as the people that they are trying to evict or block. "Just go in when they are gone and change the locks." "I comply with what I agree with and ignore the rest." "If the punishment for a self-help eviction is not jail time, Iím for it." "Stop sucking your thumb and just get it done - who cares what the law says?"

They seem to applaud themselves for doing the same sorts of things that these tenants are doing: ignoring the rules because they disagree with them.

Again, I just find that a bit funny. You can disagree if you like, but that is how I see it.

Course Hero Website (by NE [PA]) Posted on: Nov 15, 2023 8:30 AM
Message:

Also, if the punishment for self help eviction isnít jail time, but instead a civil fine, why wouldnít you? Some landlords in your favorite blue areas were locked out of rents for months and months and months. Seems to me that civil fine would be a whole he// of a lot cheaper than losing tens of thousands of dollars in unpaid rent. Itís a business decision. Except some donít have the balls to do it. --24.152.xxx.xx

Of course I break the speed limit, but I don't applaud myself as some non-thumb-sucking-alpha-male for doing so.

And just because breaking the law is sometimes cheaper than following the rules doesn't mean it is the right thing to do.

Some of us have standards and morals. Others might not, I guess.

Course Hero Website (by NE [PA]) Posted on: Nov 15, 2023 8:45 AM
Message:

Itís not breaking the law when the punishment is clearly defined and acceptable.. Itís a choice. Has nothing to do with morals. I follow the rules when we are operating in a civil environment when they benefit me. However, for example, during the scamDemic when people were locked out of their rents, we were no longer operating in a civil environment. I know that you donít have what it takes to operate the way that I do if you had to. Iím certainly not applauding myself as an alpha male. There are times where it takes a little bit more than just acting like a deer in the headlights. Iím just saying that there are times as a landlord to not be a coward. There are times as a landlord to not simply do what youíre told. Thereís times as a landlord when you canít follow the rules because if you do youíre finished. --174.240.xxx.xxx

My perspective on this forum has changed too. There was this nice little period where I felt like people weren't arguing all the time and complaining about everything.

If I recall, it was when you took a break...

So, I think that is the sign to me that it is time for one of my breaks again since this site is not doing me any good any longer.

Time for that "reset" that we talked about recently. Time to get on with the better things in life and stop having a bad time here.

I'll see you all in 3-6 months! Rent on, people! And have yourself a Merry Little Christmas in there too!

Donít think that I didnít see that post you made about leaving because of me John. I read it. And I still read here once in a while while I was taking my break. And the same freaking people still arguing without me here. Donít pretend they were. If you canít handle me, youíll never handle a sh/tty tenant.

At this point, I can take it or leave it. Doesnít matter either way to me if Iím here or not. --24.152.xxx.xx
