The crazy caseworker who works for a "mainstreaming" program and called me "unprofessional" for not renting to one of her squatter clients who was in eviction court 5 months later called me again and left a voicemail.

Apparently she forgot our little interaction and is "trying to house a woman and her 2 kids who are desperate." This program has the reputation of clients that are the worst of the worst. You can't make this stuff up! This last week the tenant special has been young women on assistance with loads of baby daddy drama. One right after another like a parade. --64.246.xxx.xx

Some LL have blacklists for tenants. I have one for agencies. I have two on my list right now. Not for placing difficult tenants with me, but for threatening to report me for discrimination and violating Fair Housing when I told them it wasn't working out and they needed to find a different place for their clients.

It's a crazy world we live in, indeed. --104.230.xxx.xxx

Housing is not a right if they abuse that right. What the reality is that vacancy rates are really low or not at all where rental housing providers do not have accept those are in eviction merry go round where they find they are out the private sector rental housing market. In the province it can 8 months to a year in some cases to evict for non payment of rent where there is exponentail decline in the lower end of the rental housing as rental housing providers are leaving rental housing where houses, townhouses and condominiums are sold to become owner occupied which are out the lower rental housing forever. The provincial government does not want to fix the problem. For tenants who get evicted what they find is owned by very corporations which is really expensive where they run credit checks. So for problem tenants there housing as a last resort which is (community housing formally called the Housing Authority where no credit checks are done where once evicted then out for life. If want rental housing must pay rent along with no illegal acts or disturbing the peace and enjoyment of other tenants. Also removing or disconnecting a smoke, carbon monoxide alarm is a serious safety violation. If the case worker owns a house then let her house problem tenants for free where some will buy illegal drugs. --207.236.xxx.xxx

All calls go to voicemail. I haven't talked to a crazy caseworker since 2012... the same time I adopted that policy.

Just remember: as good as it may feel in the moment to "teach them a lesson" or inform them how many noodles short of a casserole they are.... "anything you say can be used against you in a court of law."

Stay away from crazies. Make more money. Live a happier life.

Sid, oh she went to voice mail. I never pick up on the rental line unless I know it is one of my established tenants who have proven that they only call for emergencies. --64.246.xxx.xx

Image the frustration of your job being "helping people with resources" but the people haven't helped themselves! Social workers, police, etc. How frustrating! Mostly she doesn't remember contacting you ever! And her comment was out of frustration and desperation it's like the stoop down to a new level, below professionalism. When do these handouts and desperate needs stop? What generation steps up, grows up and takes responsibility for themselves? It truly can't go in forever. The Church use to do this type of grassroots help but I am concerned the government is failing at it desperately. --172.59.xxx.xxx

I no tolerance for people who canít follow basic rules. No way I could be a caseworker dealing with these types of people. Caseworker probably has to be a bit crazy to take that job. --50.249.xxx.xx

Just one of many reasons I no longer take tenants who are on assistance. At least it is still legal to do so in my state for now.

Last one I tried was a lady and her daughter in a women's shelter. She was clean, but not tested. All was fine until the shelter money dwindled to $0, then the headaches started.

Coincidently she was the only tenant who tried claiming C19 as the reason she didn't pay all the rent. When I reminded her that she was now living off her ex baby daddy's disability she admitted she had the money but needed to be behind in rent to get on a new program.

She was filed on the next day. Haven't regretted it at all.

I have a few tenants on disability and all but one of them tries to work to make ends meet. The one who doesn't has COPD, is down to smoking a pack a day but got her a BF with a job so all is good in her world. --107.147.xx.xx

40 years of 100% authority accompanied by 0% responsibility. People on public assistance shouldn't be allowed to vote. Conversely, landlords should be allowed to vote in every county/municipality that they pay property taxes in.

And yes, the caseworkers are often crazier than the clients. --64.246.xxx.xx

Some case workers are more tenant advocates.

Had one tell me to refund the tenants deposit after they burned the place to the ground by leaving candles lit and unattended.

Can't make this stuff up. --208.90.xxx.xx
