Good on the business for fighting back, managing to get rid of everything in seven days. There's just a strange kind of joy that comes from knowing that landlord must've been absolutely miserable.

Landlord Threatens Court so Tenant Takes Him to Court

What a splendid little example of calling someone's bluff. This landlord was completely unhelpful and thought their threat would let them illegally keep their tenant's security deposit. After getting caught lying in court, this tenant had their ex-landlord eating their stupid words. People sometimes win against their landlords, like this guy who got contractual revenge on his landlord or this person who staged a coup d'etat on their terrible landlord.

Tenant Outwits Psycho Landlord

The tenant just wanted their deposit back, but this nasty landlord insisted on going ahead and stirring up all kinds of unnecessary drama. The look on that landlord's face when they were sitting there in the mediator room, and told that they had no chance at actually "defeating" the tenant must've been pure gold. 

Check out another instance of a landlord who refused to give a tenant their deposit back, and ultimately got bested in court.

Landlord Tries To Hustle Tenants, Tenants Stop Paying Rent

Wow, this tale of a revenge taken by tenants against their landlord in New York reads like a real life fairytale. The landlord was trying to run up those tenants' repairs tabs, and didn't anticipate that they'd do their research on the building. That research resulted in learning that the landlord/landlord's company never got a note of occupancy for the building. Fast forward, and the tenants have a lawyer who basically set them up with rent-free living for around a year, in New York. Insane. 

Enjoy some more landlord revenge drama over here with the time that a landlord refused to give tenants their deposit, so a court revenge followed.
