Landlord's Jealous Of Tenant's Income, Raises Rent, Gets Defeated Years Later

Enough of all the landlords in the world trying to take advantage of their kindhearted tenants just trying to plant their roots. Seriously, this landlord thought they'd be able to pull a fast one on the tenant and raise their rent by $500 just because they knew the tenant had the money to pay that. Fortunately, the landlord was stopped in their tracks.

Leasing Agent Learns About Lease The Hard Way

The best part about this shady leasing agent is they thought they'd go ahead and get away with some unadulterated BS, without the tenant actually reading the finer details of said lease. Well, they certainly got humbled and learned their lesson in the end. Check out some more juicy housing drama with this landlord who encouraged their tenant to research their rights, and ended up losing the battle as a result.

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.

Landlord Won't Fix Broken Windows, Costs Landlord Thousands

We have no idea what dark force compels the scummy landlords of the world to walk around stirring up trouble, and acting like they don't have to play the rules like the rest of us. Especially when it comes to respecting tenants' rights. So, any time we see the tenant pull through with the righteous victory our hearts melt in satisfaction. 

Check out another revenge story where a landlord wouldn't pay for electricity during the winter, and had to pay thousands.

Queen Karen, President Of The HOA Gets Defeated

Nothing quite warms our hearts like a tyrannical, shady, and genuinely mean Karen getting it in the end. This particular Karen was enforcing the rules while she wasn't abiding by the most important ones herself. This ultimately manifests in Karen's self destruction. Sounds like she lost everything.

Smug Roommate Won't Pay Rent, Gets Defeated In Court

As far as nightmarish roommate cases go, this woman is in a league of her own. She refused to pay rent, drained her roommate's savings in the process, stole their food, broke their things, and all the while pawned off the unfortunate instances as being a result of "bad energy" in the place. Yeah, it would seem like she was absolutely responsible for the stirring up of that bad energy. Fortunately, the roommate had a valuable connection in the legal department and was able to resolve the drama in court with welcomed smoothness and efficiency. 

Check out some more roommate revenge drama with this roommate who stopped paying for utilities, so a petty revenge ensued.
