The Tenant Who Wanted To Fight

This week’s story again comes from Financial Uproar.  Sometimes cultural differences and a language barrier can result in a fighting stance. I rent out my basement. For the most part, I’ve had good tenants. My current tenant is moving out at the end of June, because she got pregnant and wants her own place for […]

The Creepy Roommate

Today’s post is from Financial Uproar.  This post reminds up to be careful who we rent to.  If you don’t have a good feeling about the person, it might be your intuition telling you to run! Shortly after I bought my house in 2008, I was on a bit on a kick to try to […]
