My roommate noticed I'm not going into work anymore. I told her I left that job and am looking for a new one. She said "so now you're a professional homeowner, basically?" I disagreed with that assessment. She said I'm leeching off of her and the other girl because I don't want to work.

'She said I'm leeching off of her': Unemployed live-in landlord changes terms, draws ire from roommate who is subsidizing his existence

The dynamic of a homeowner bringing in roommates is interesting: on the one hand, they're a roommate; on the other, the landlord. This can create delicate situations and result in either party harboring ill sentiments for the other.

It's no secret that many (most) of…

'My mother's gonna have to move': Landlord blasted by internet for buying a new car after raising rent

Who wouldn't want to earn a passive income that directly pays off the assets required, which themselves appreciate value at an alarming rate? The only trade-off is that you have to be willing to do it by stepping directly on the necks of others. That's what being a landlord is, if you're able and willing to join a group of persons who are directly disadvantaging other people then look no further than investing in real estate!

'Can my landlord do this?': 5 Times Landlords Displayed an Inhuman Lack of Consideration For Their Tenants
