Landlord Loses His Mind

From today’s Kansas City Star:

Newark, Del. | Police have arrested a landlord who allegedly rammed his Hummer into a renter’s house, claiming the tenants were behind on their rent.

Police said the 30-year-old landlord crashed the SUV into a home on Lute Court in Harmony Woods about 3 a.m. on Thursday.

A 50-year-old woman an her 53-year-old husband sleeping inside an were jolted awake by a loud crash and the house shaking.

Officers learned the man was the landlord and went to his home and saw the damaged Hummer with a pine branch stuck in the front bumper.

First, how does this help the landlord with his expenses?  Second, how does it help collect the rent?  And third, I’m sure there is much more to the story.  Aren’t you?  But hey, maybe he needed the money right now for gas.  I might suggest that if your tenant hasn’t paid rent that you handle it a little differently.  🙂

  1. So did the yard signs say Rambo Realty when the tenants rented it? No? Okay, then there’s no excuse for this.

  2. LAR – Rambo Realty? That’d be cool. Free explosive tipped arrow with every successful closing!

  3. I so want to do that some times. As much as I can appreciate the frustration, I would never be seen driving a hummer by my tenants! 1st rule of landlording.

  4. Wanting to do something and doing it are two different things. 🙂
