MrsRoberts52:  Wow.  You can’t be too busy managing these properties if you have so much spare time to delve into the intimate workings of your tenants lives.

As far as I can tell, you have no proof he is doing illegal activies on your property, you have no control over what kind of car he drives and you verbally agreed at the start that it was okay for the mum to have her son there for a bit, if he parked in the spare car parks.  People break parking rules all the time, it isn’t grounds to evict them.

My mums been kicked out of her home so I am letting her stay at my expensive house in an exclusive neighbourhood that we rent (we have housemates which is how we can afford it).  She has a shitty car and smokes pot, should my landlord rock up to my house and kick me to the curb? 

But then it all made sense when I read “They’re actually my daddys properties”.

May daddy support you for life so you never fall on hard times and “have to drive a shitty car”

I just want to further the social media usage. They WILL use that as evidence in court. Someone I know just lost their child, because of some of the things they were posting on social media. The mom had been granted visits and they took them away. The child now lives with a relative of the father (who had no rights as a drug abuser). Just the fact that she was posting her every move on her Facebook. You don’t own your Facebook, the company and owner own them. You are technically using a piece of property. I also know plenty of people who have been arrested for violating probation, due to what they post. The local news station did a huge story on how your Facebook, IG, Twitter accounts are public (and forget deleting evidence, they can actually get back all you’ve erased). Just something to think about. Just like, renting property. You DON’T own the property. I found out the hard way. Our landlord does quarterly random inspections (not against the law). Some of the people on here should probably research, because a lot of what you think us the law, or you have the “right” to do, is not so much the case.

nessdawwg:  father issues much?

I mean I do think OP should just stick to the 3 day thing. Drugs would make me nervous too but she can’t prove it.

Still, your response was really out of hand.

Are you assuming that these “contractors” are drug tested regularly? Or do you know this to be a fact? Here’s a fact for you, there are plenty of major corporations that enforce drug testing and background checks only during the hiring process.

Also how can you be so sure that one of your contractor tenants isn’t currently involved in illegal activities? Are you monitoring their social media accounts? Are you regularly monitoring their visitors? Are you performing monthly drug testing and background checks? I’m disgusted with the tone of your comments.

The message that you are conveying is incredibly ignorant, arrogant, self-righteous, immature and discriminatory. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least bit if you were to end up on the receiving end of a lawsuit in the future.

I think the intention comes from a genuine place. I dont think the op is a bad person.  She does not sound very versed in tentant/landlord law though.  You can not just “add provisions” into a lease without having an attorney make sure the provison is 1. something you can legally do 2. Worded in a correct, clear, and binding manner.  Putying an illegal provision into a preexisting contract could in fact make the entire contract void.

An attorney will be able to tell you exactly what constitutes discrimimation.  You may think you have a very valid arguememt as to

why you do the things you do.  However, the law may not agree.


*sprry for all the typos, I’m on my iphone).


example from my state not to long ago:

A single mother with a small child wanted to rent a house.  the house was very rural and have a large driveway/lawn that would be the tentants responsibility to take care of (ie shoving in the winter, cutting grass/watering in the summer).  she applied for the house.  Her credit

profile was much like one he had previously approved.  She was able to prove she had enough money to cover rent every month, she had a steady job.  However the landlord also got an application from a couple who had essentially the same credit and income as the somgle

mother.  The landlord went with the couple.  He said he was worried about the mothers safety being in a rural area with her child and didn’t think the single mother would be capable of maintanging the house (shoveling, cutting grass). the landlord was sued and lost big time.  It was determinded that he was discrimmating against

her when he made those decisions.


landord/tentant laws are extremely complex, and the penalties for not following them to a t are huge.  I can imagine if I owned a home and

was renting it out I might think something along the lines of the landlord in that lawsuit.  To me

irs about protecting my property.  However, there are MANY laws in place to ensure that everyone has access to housing.  See what you can do on the 3 day rule (another note if they say he isnt living there, ask the mailman if he delivers mail there for him). Pretty hard to

deny you don’t live somewhere if your mail is delivered there (meaning they gave

seone that address as THIER address)
