Definitely not! Based solely on the picture depicting your refrigerator and the small surrouding pigsty, I'd say it's torch time.

Let me clarify, this is not the refrigerator in my kitchen. This was left to me in one of my apartments. As for torch time, you are closer than you realize. This is the living room. [img]http://home.quixnet.net/~mcress/packrat.jpg[/img]

Does the landlord have a right to periodically inspect his property to ensure that it is not being damaged or devalued by actions of the tenants? I doubt forfeiture of a security deposit would be adequate compensation for some stuff you've seen.

how, how, how....I mean [i]how[/i] does someone let a place get like that? I think you have to [i]try[/i] to trash an apartment like that. My sympathies, Slumlord.

Let me guess, they're not going to get their damage deposit back, right? With renters like that, you should be concerned that they might not have used the toilet too much. Tread carefully. You might want to schedule some repairs or simple maintenance in each apartment every few months. Gives you a reason to enter the domicile. Put those foaming cleaners in the sink or clean the dust off of the fridge coils. Anything to give you a reason to check often enough.

Excellent idea. Vacuum the heater ducts in the fall. Clean the refrigerator coils in the spring.

That looks like some of my rental houses after I got them back. Thats why I buy houses, fix and resell now. I get more and more dissatisfied and saddened with the quality of most people anymore[V] Hey Slumlord, show us a pic of the bathroom. Thats always an eye opener too.

I only charge a $99.00 deposit. Rarely do I give one back. Also, I have seen conditions that people live in that would make you want to shower in bleach.

I had one woman who when she moved out, left about 30 40oz beer bottles full of urine in the corner of the room. Apparently the bathroom 10 feet away was too far to go. The master bedroom also had thousands of cigarette butts stacking about 2 feet high covering about half the room. It was like wading through snow drifts it was so deep.

I had one that I gave an eviction notice to for failure to pay rent,that lived in a side by side duplex. They moved out but left a 25 pound box of meat on the kitchen counter and they turned the heat up to 85. I walked in that place and it smelled like somebody died[puke] The kids also threw a knife over and over into my nice oak woodwork and fucked it up. I had another house where a couple tenants that were in thier early 60's rented one of my houses. When I got that house back it was so smoked up from cigarettes that my new white paint job was dark yellow in the span of 12 months. They also had an old dog that chewed itself so much that the new carpet I put in before they started renting from me still smells like wet dog. Also the tenants spit up hockers all over the downstairs walls. Who would have thought a couple in thier 60's would spit all over my walls? Many lower income people really are dirty animals[V]

There is not enough money in the world to make me associate with trash such as those people, even if it is only to collect the rent. Poor does not have to mean dirty. People make a choice to live in squalor and filth. It sickens me. TT

Wow, that's relatively expensive, and you still get people like that? I'm currently helping-out at a place that's $50 per month cheaper than that for a large one bedroom in a nice location that's about 10 years-old, and they have mostly pretty good tenants. Many of them are slow with their rent, but their apartments don't look like that! It's when you get into the $200/month houses that I've seen the really scary stuff. I used to manage about 150 of those, and I did want to shower in bleach each night!z

Slumlord, Your too nice. A: get rid of all bills paid. Thats just dumb IMHO. In due time, you might even want to raise rent. B: Raise the deposit. Make it enough to recondition an apt. that looks like that. If the owner doesnt leave your apt in good condition (Clean, all in one piece, flushed toilet), you keep it in the name of hiring someone to clean up. Oh, and BTW, when we rent to people we make damn sure that we rent to respectable individuals. Nothing wrong with being a little picky, but, this is NYC, and all rent only keeps going up, so its not hard to find people to choose between.

Rents do go up. However unfortunately when your on Martin Luther King Blvd you can't be as picky as you would like. Rents all over Houston are still pretty low right now compared to other parts of the country. Especially NYC!!! If I charged a higher deposit, I would get even fewer applicants. In order to get enough to recondition the apartment I would need 10 times that in a deposit.
