So Many Bad Tenant Stories


About 752,000 results- the number of Bad Tenant Stories found on Google!

Tenant problems plague landlords every day. However, reducing rent to maintain good tenants and evicting problem tenants may not be the best courses of action.

While lower rents obviously affect a landlord’s profitability, evictions are also expensive and can cost a landlord time, money, and resource to conduct. In addition to the basic turnover expenses such as marketing, lost rent, new paint, and appliance repairs, attorneys’ fees for evicting a tenant can be outrageous. Also, a tenant may vent his or her anger by purposefully damaging the property.

We had a great time at the AAKC Trade show, with a theme of Back to the 80s’s.  Christie Hartford, our VP of Sales and Service
was bedazzled in her 80’s jean jacket. Mr. T and the Blues Brothers were spotted walking through the event! AAA Screening’s “You Can’t Win if You Don’t Spin” game was very popular. With each spin of the wheel players win prizes, the most popular prize was the Great Plains SPCA win matching.

When Contestants landed on Great Plains SPCA, AAA Screening would donate a $1.00 in honor of the spinner to the  organization. At the end of the trade show, AAA Screening  doubles the amount. Thanks to everyone that stopped by and played, Great Plains SPCA will receive an $80  check with the names of the following individuals:
