Tenant Rents Fake Apartment, Accidentally Takes Pro Revenge

I mean, in all fairness an accidental professional revenge is better than no revenge at all. It seems as if the world's unfortunately never going to run out of shady landlords trying to pull fast ones on unsuspecting tenants. So, I guess it falls on us to read up on those tenant rights, and then clap right on back with pro revenges when the opportunities present themselves. For some more landlord drama check out this tenant who staged a coup d'état on a terrible landlord

Landlord Encourages Tenant To Research Rights, Tenant's Victory Ensues

Man, any time we see a landlord try to pull a fast one on a tenant, and then the tenant proceeds to teach them a lesson, it warms our hearts. In this case, it really just seems like the landlord didn't expect the tenant to do their research. From there, soon as the truth came to light, you can pick up the clear scent of resignation from the landlord trying to continue onward with their antics. Check out another time a shady landlord was defeated by a moral enforcer.

Guy Goes Full Wrath Of Karen Mode On Landlord

There are way too many sleazy landlords trying to pull a fast one on unsuspecting tenants out there.

Property Manager Won't Return Security Deposit, Pro Revenge Ensues

What is with all these landlords and being so dang stubborn (and criminal) when it comes to returning tenants' rightful deposits? It's like, just do the right thing so that the rest of the antics don't need to occur in the first place. But alas, here we are. This guy successfully took the tyrannical property manager down by setting up a website that ended up getting a whole lot of traffic. Hopefully they kept that site up until the property manager made good on all of the payments.

Landlord Tries To Sell Tenants' Equipment To Competitors, Fails Miserably

This landlord thought they'd get away with trying to sell their tenants' equipment to their competitors, but they ended up failing miserably. 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.

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.

Landlord Won't Replace Mailbox Key, Tenant Takes Revenge

Realizing that you've moved into a new space overseen by an incapable, wildly inconsiderate landlord is one of the worst realizations to have. You're out there paying all that money to live in a decent enough space, and when something goes wrong, you can't even get your landlord to help you out? No thank you. These dudes found themselves with a landlord who just couldn't seem to get around to replacing their busted mailbox key. So, when the tenant's final day of living in the apartment had arrived, and the landlord was nowhere to be found when it was time for the apartment inspection, the tenant put that house key right in the very mailbox that the landlord hadn't procured the new key for. A simple enough, yet brutally effective petty revenge. Plus, this story's been made all the better by those ridiculous typos.

Low-Life Landlord Dealt Justice By Tenant

Anyone who enjoys seeing sweet justice getting dealt out will get a kick out of this. We have a low-life landlord, who quite simply, gets their comeuppance to the satisfying tune of having to pay up, then having assets at their place of business seized, and then having the same money returned. 

If this landlord revenge got you going, we recommend checking out this story of the landlord who refused to give the tenant back their deposit, so a court revenge followed. Similar in tone, and again, oh so satisfying.

It's stories like this that serve as a solid reminder in the importance of knowing your rights as a tenant. There are an unfortunate amount of landlords out there that either have no idea what they're doing when it comes to playing by the rules of the law, or they're just shady and trying to pull a fast one on an unsuspecting tenant. Fortunately, this landlord tale ends well for the tenant involved.

Tenant Refuses to Give Up Parking Spot for Disabled Lady

Sometimes we find ourselves in awkward situations, especially when it's over a finite resource like parking. There are plenty of times handicapped parking spot hogs need to be taught a lesson, but this situation has a more complex backstory than some rando just illegally occupying a handicapped parking space at the store. The most important thing to do in these situations is to take a step back and think "why am I in this situation?" In this case it seems like the apartment manager may be the one to blame for all this madness.
