Slumlord Refuses To Give Tenant Security Deposit, Tenant Puts Slumlord Out Of Business

Unfortunately, the world's in no short supply of landlords that are blinded beyond belief by obscene levels of greed. All this greed can manifest into some very shady, generally immoral antics. In this case, it sounds like the slumlord was clearly not going to play nice, and return the security deposit to the tenants after they moved out. The good news is that the tenants didn't stand for it, and instead decided to fight back by ingeniously securing a website that'd go on to be the slumlord's ultimate archenemy.

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.

Crazy Landlord Gets Outwitted By Crafty Tenant

Man oh man, you just never really know if you're going to end up in a living situation that's hopelessly bogged down by a tyrannical landlord who misplaced their moral compass. Sometimes the relationship between a tenant and their landlord can end up falling apart when it's least expected. This scenario certainly fits that mold. Mary seemed like she was great at the start, but that welcoming facade quickly gave way to the real monster that was hiding out inside. We're just glad everything worked out for the tenant by the end. The look on Mary's face must've been priceless too.
