So, his ex reported him to the landlord, and he was screwed from there. Just a textbook petty revenge between a bitter couple of ex lovers. 

Check out another petty revenge with this story about some loud neighbors that deprived a family of sleep, so the kids took revenge.

Tenant Takes Revenge On Evil Landlord

Nothing melts our hearts like seeing an evil and maniacal landlord get righteously taken down by a tenant who simply had enough of their BS. It sounds like this particular landlord was a waking nightmare. Like, my dude, you cannot walk into a tenant's apartment without giving notice. There are laws in this strange existence that we call our own.

Real Estate Agent Pulls Bait And Switch, Revenge Ensues

Sometimes, the best course of action when you realize that a landlord or real estate agent is going shady on you, and trying to pull the bait and switch, is to do nothing at all. This couple certainly got their vengeance, and we're glad to see that everything worked out for them on their housing hunt. The only way that they could've made this revenge any sweeter would've been to have sent a couple friends in their place to "sign the lease", only to back out at the last second.

Tenants Break All The Rules, Ask Landlord To Be More Professional

Man, oh, man, these tenants sound like a nightmare to deal with. The kudos definitely goes to the landlord here. The landlord handles the situation by listening to those malicious compliance chills, and using the very "professional" rules they asked the landlord to follow, to ultimately bring the tenants down. Even after the victory in the small claims court, the landlord exercises self control and doesn't rub it in their faces. Good for her. Love to see a situation where the landlord is actually being the nice human.
