15 Bad Landlords You Wouldn’t Want to Rent a Place From

I’ve been lucky enough to have really good landlords throughout my life of renting apartments in different towns and cities. They’ve all been great…

Except once.

Those people were terrible. In fact, you might even call them SLUMLORDS. Which reminds me of this song by the classic punk band D.R.I.

Now that we’re all fired up, let’s look at some people who shared posts about their really shitty landlords!

1. That’s very helpful.

I had to finish my landlords job.

2. This is what cold water looks like.


3. Just like MacGyver.

This is how the landlord fixed the leaky ceiling.

4. Mike seems like a great guy.

Found this note in my mailbox from my landlord today. Too awesome not to share!

5. Safety first, obviously.

I call that getting swindled and pimped by the landlord.

6. What an a**hole.

This is my landlords response to a simple text. No previous convo nothing what you see is what you get.

7. That Irish Spring should clear it up.

A rodent died under our sunroom this winter and stunk up the house. This was my landlord’s answer to fixing the smell…

8. That took way more effort that buying a new table.

12. Really classin’ the place up.

When I told my landlord my shower head was leaking, he said he was going to hook me up. This is what I came home to.

13. They might call the cops soon, FYI.

Landlord put this up cuz the neighborhoods won’t stop selling meth

14. Five times is a lot.

I’ve had this leaking window “fixed” over 5 times… It’s 2 a.m. The maintainance guy says it’s due to the small balcony above the window? How hard is it to find a more permanent solution? I’ve told them I can hear water leaking in the wall and there’s probably mold(even had a mushroom come through)

15. Okay, that’s pretty bad.

Our ceiling has fallen 3 times and our landlord does not care.
