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!
