Manager Gets Nailed By His Own Unfair Policy

When confronted with the issue of people locking themselves out of their apartments on the weekends, this manager wanted to avoid paying overtime by passing the burden onto their own tenants. The policy was unpopular. As it so often happens with incompetent managers, their plan backfired.

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.

Tenant Assumes There's A Bat In Closet, Learns Otherwise

An unfortunate many of us have ended up in the middle of a nerve-racking scenario, where we're hearing strange, unnerving noises come from some part of the home, with no idea what could be causing it. Or, even worse, the rampant imagination runs along at a maddening pace, and dreams up some terrible hypothetical situation that you end up believing. We're just glad that it all worked out for this person.

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.

Landlord Tries To Rip Tenant Off, Ends Up Paying Over $6.5K

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.

Fortunately, they kept their wits about them, and were able to carry out a successful, hilarious little petty revenge.

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.

Tenants' Gnarliest Landlord Stories

It's little recaps from rightfully disgruntled tenants like these that end up giving the landlords of the world a bad rap. It could be gnarly cases of landlords going on power trips, thinking that they can get away with just about anything; or just genuinely immoral people being put in a position of power. We're not sure. Probably a bit of both. Hopefully none of these frustrating stories from tenants ring a bell.

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.
