I don’t really have very much to write at the moment because I am so MAD!
You try and do something for your future, try and make the best or be the best. Try to save, or create or do whatever and somebody else just comes along and laughs at you. Or at least that is the way I am feeling at the moment.
A few years ago I bought a couple of houses to rent out. They are not in the best area, but as an investment they are good. I worked out that instead of putting all my money into a retirement fund this was a better option for me. I do not earn enough to live on and save as much as I would need to retire comfortably. In fact this would be a brilliant plan if it were not for one thing – FREAKING TENANTS!!!!
Why is it that they feel they can just move in and then not pay rent? I still have bonds to pay, rates and levies to pay etc. I cannot just pay all this indefinitely without receiving any rent! And now they refuse to move out! I want to scream! I am hoping that my threatening them will get them out, but I doubt it. Worst is it is not just one set of tenants. It is both of them. 2 properties – 2 non-paying tenants! The one even had the audacity today to phone me and tell me I need to replace the back door as it is damaged! You ARSE have not paid rent – I am not fixing anything. I told him I would fix it the day after he moved out and hung up!
