Real Estate ain't always sunshine & rainbows........Don't believe us? After watching a few episodes of The Tenants From Hell Show, you will.
Dealing with tenants is probably the hardest thing an investor has to do in real estate investing. As a real estate investor you always have to be on your toes because you never know when a good tenant is going to go bad. In the 60th episode of The Tenants From Hell Show we take a look at the deadly eviction between an east Oakland landlord named Kulbushan Gupta and his 94 year old tenant, Frank Spillman. Frank Spillman had rented from Kulbushan Gupta for over 35 years. During the tenancy the tensions between the tenant and the landlord grew to a boiling point. Frank Spillman believed his landlord had poisoned his chickens and was going to evict him. These beliefs have been attributed to Frank Spilman's dementia by some. In the end, Frank Spilman became one of the oldest people arrested for murder in the history of the United States when shot and killed his landlord Kulbushan Gupta while Gupta was visiting the property he rented to Spilman.
Clearing out illegal squatters from a rental property can put real estate investors in an extremely difficult and dangerous situation. As a new landlord you may be wondering what to do if squatters broke into your house. Can you evict squatters? What is the difference between evicting squatters and evicting regular tenants? What are the squatters rights when clearing squatters out of your house? You are in luck, these are the types of situations we deal with at HoltonWise and here on HoltonWiseTV. On the 59th episode of The Tenants From Hell Show the HoltonWiseTV team is clearing one of our houses after serial squatters broke in and started living there illegally.
The covid eviction moratorium has many tenants asking "can my landlord evict me right now?" In some cases the answer to that question is actually no. This has led to many renters not paying rent to their landlords. Tenants taking advantage of the eviction ban is a property managers worst nightmare. In the case of Bristol, Connecticut landlord David Haberfield that nightmare came to life. His dead beat tenant stopped paying him rent for over 14 months. By the time David Haberfield was finally able to evict this nightmare tenant the damage had already been done to the tune of $25,000. David's house was completely trashed by this horrible tenant. Graffiti and red paint covered the walls of the once nice rental property.

In the 57th episode of The Tenants From Hell Show we cover the breaking news that many struggling property owners have been dreading.

With the CARES Act eviction moratorium beginning in March of 2020, and the national eviction moratorium going into effect in September of 2020, this most recent eviction moratorium extension means some rental property owners will have been forced to let people live in their homes rent free for over 15 months. The endless covid 19 eviction moratoriums are making many real estate investors wonder when private property rights will be restored. When will the endless coronavirus eviction moratoriums end? Is the cancel rent movement winning?
