30 Terrible Landlords That Made People Regret Renting Their Homes

Published 4 years ago

Anyone who has ever rented a place will tell you what sweet-talkers some landlords can be. “Oh yeah, the neighbors are quiet and heating bills are low,” says the landlord with a sly smile on their face. And it’s only after you move in that you realize your next-door neighbor loves playing the trumpet in the middle of the night and that the heating bills are low only because the thermostat is permanently set to 60°F.

If you’ve ever encountered a landlord from hell, don’t worry – you’re not alone. People online are publicly shaming their terrible landlords and the pictures really speak for themselves. Spy cameras, mushrooms growing from the ceiling and crappy amateur repair work – check out all of the times landlords made people regret renting their homes in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?



abusive landlords, bad landlords, jerk landlords, worst landlords
