One thing I have avoided, as much as possible, in this life is being a landlord. I have had it thrust upon me for a couple of brief periods, once while handling the affairs of a mentally failing aunt and another by inheritance. I unloaded the inherited rental as quickly as possible.
Even though I now live in a State that is highly favorable to landlords, it is still something I would avoid.
Good and bad landlords just like they are good and bad tenants.
Before my wife moved in with me she rented a house and the landlord was amazing. When she hit on hard times he worked with her and could not have been more understanding. When she left the property (in good standing) she got her full deposit back and he offered her a job cleaning up rentals as he told her she did a better job of cleaning it up than the people he uses to come in behind a tenant to clean up.
Other neighbors gathered outside the scorched residence told the radio station that the woman’s boyfriend had been trying to evict her for several years, but his efforts were hindered temporarily by Gov. Phil Murphey’s pandemic-era eviction ban
