With the cost of buying a place of your own being so high, renting out is the most feasible option for many people. However, it does come with its own downsides. The lack of ownership means rent price is liable to fluctuate and the whole experience may be influenced heavily by one’s relationship with the landlord. 

Indeed, if you end up with a less-than-pleasant individual as your landlord, the experience may directly correlate to a not-so-pleasant stay with issues regarding repairs or amenities cropping up repeatedly. Today, we explore a host of such situations, where folks encountered a unique landlord that led to an interesting experience which they felt worthy of sharing with the world online as solid entertainment fodder.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
