Up then down

On Tuesday evening we happily got a tenant for our place. Emails and phone calls exchanged. Off goes the lease via email to be signed and returned. The new tenants are moving back from Florida and so most of the discussion was via long distance. The best friend comes to look, the daughter comes to look. Everyone is happy and Wednesday is spent excited about having this finally behind us.

Move forward to Wednesday evening. Voice mail is left on my home telephone from the husband...it is 8:42pm....sorry, we won't be taking the house. We don't like the terms of your lease and are offended about your application! To say I am shocked, sad, sick, etc. is an understatement. I emailed these documents Tuesday at 6pm...it took 27 hours to figure out there was a problem????? Honestly, if the husband found something better, best of luck to them, but the forms I use are New York State standard lease forms. Also, the information on the application had already been provided by the wife, I just asked them to list their vehicles. As far as verifying employment...what the freak. ANY place they go to live are going to do that....am I crazy? He also mentioned hoping I could get the other applicants to move in! What does he think people do when you tell them the house is rented???? DUH!!!!!..hello idiot....you wanted the place.

To say no one slept well at our house last night is an understatement. P just got told he has to do midnight shift for three weeks (he thinks it's more permanent), and starts this week! He is bummed about that. The boat comes out this weekend and we will close camp very soon.

Thank goodness for BLOGGY MEETUP to look forward too!

well that sucks! i pretty much thought you had to sign your life away when you rented and/or bought a home?? guess they had never done that. i still think you should make it your 'craft cottage'!

OH dear, I really think the scrapbooking cottage is sounding better and better......Do you guys always have this much trouble filling the house?

Sounds like they were making a bad excuse, or maybe they have something to hide! It is standard to list your vehicles if for no other reason, to reduce liability. Also, of course you would want their employer! A gym membership even requires that you list your employer! LOL! What crack heads.

I agree I think he just changed his mind. Hopefully you can find someone else soon or like everyone else said just keep it for yourself.

WOw, did you send him back an email telling me its all standard stuff and now YOU don't like HIM?!

Sounds like its good it didnt work out. Little kooky that one.

We were pretty offended about the whole lease thing. A lease is there to protect the owner. It's not my job to fulfill their lease, it's their job. I think they were using it as an excuse too. Like maybe the wife is way more excited to move back here than the husband. I figure if people don't want you checking on them, they have something to hide. I'm continuing to look for the "silver lining".

gee flipping whiz...I think maybe there is something to hide there, too, about those people! Anybody who rents from a landlord that does things right will be asked those questions. It sounds like these people are older and I wonder why the answers are a problem for them. I hope P does not get stuck on the night shift again permanently. What is Marty up to?

Sorry to hear things didn't work out. We're sure you'll have someone soon. Keep your chin up.
