Oh boy, this tenant literally didn't give up until the slimy landlord saw life as they knew it upended.

Landlord Refuses To Fix Broken Windows, Costs Him Thousands And Job

This landlord learned a humbling lesson in the power of addressing tenants and their concerns. If the landlord had just listened, and proceeded to fix the broken windows, so much money could've been saved. But no. No listening. Instead, the landlord ended up having to pay thousands of dollars, and a loss of a job factored in too.

Judge Orders Slimy Landlord to Re-Sod Their Own Lawn

When this Landlord went back on their word and tried to con their old tenants out of their security deposit, they took the matter to court. You don't expect a judge to be so sensible.

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.

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.

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.
