ust move out after the summer and hold up the rent for couple of weeks not too lose money as it won't be very fair to us, this is the last option
I had tenants hear what they want. Get anything agreed in writing. Read it and both stick with it.
I told a tenant I would pay for paint once I approved the colour. I would pick it up and provide any equipment and even help.
Tenant tries to break lease as I didn't paint the place (it was freshly painted before they moved in). Claimed I had said I would paint it but I had explained as above and in writing.
I had replaced the sofa as he said the sofa was too big for the room. It was good quality and comfortable but probably a little big. He picked the sofa and I warned him it was not a comfortable sofa and prone to damage which he would have to pay for. Wanted it got it.
When he wanted to move out he stopped paying his rent because I would keep his deposit. Bloody right walls destroyed with nails, sofa destroyed with burn marks, filth and broken handles, hinges etc.
Pretty much if a tenant asks for things now at the start I say no. Trust has to be earned and I need to see that the tenant will stay.
Why anybody would want to rent a place where messy construction occurs is beyond me.
