The next couple of weeks will be a busy one for me, as it seems I am finally going to get to climb up on a ladder or two, paint all the walls, and clean up after some rather awful tenants, The Froggy Family. It will be a relief to finally get things back in order, now that they have vacated the Town House early . Now I just need a disaster site sign, oh, I mean a remodeling sign.

It was, and I stress "was" an upscaled beautiful luxury Town House. Very pretty, and I would often think as Property Manager, it would be nice to move into ourselves, now that it is just the two of us. If only I didn't have so much stuff.

It is uniquely designed in that it is all on one level, very rare for Town Houses here in Florida. It has two bedrooms and a lovely living/diningroom combo with a white brick fireplace that has a simple but beautiful floor to cathedral ceiling mirror over it. Huge sliders, Designer vertical blinds, and a darling little kitchen. The back porch is screened in and it has to nice bathrooms. My favorite part is the surround sound ~ slash ~ intercom system. It is nestled right in the middle of a woodsy area and is right across from the community pool.

The tenants were like people I have never known. Head She Frog, had a daughter toad, and a Son-in-law toad. That I was originally told were married. (this was a lie) The background search checked out so I moved them in and it has been a nightmare ever since. I tried my best to treat them nice but I would get calls from Head She Frog all hours of the night, and never about there being a problem with the house, it was always about the !#?x*% and all the drama concerning the family. This has been going on for months and then suddenly there were signs that the situation was much worse than I had even realized. Without going into too much detail. All I can say is, "the hoops I would go through to please these people, all while following the law governing rental property".

I took possession two weeks ago, as they abandoned the property two months prior to the end of the lease agreement. So I refuse to be in the dumps, even though I will definitely be needing to bring in a big dump truck to get rid of all the junk they left! The four paneled mirrored closet was broken, est. $800. to replace/repair. Door molding torn off, carpet distroyed in every room. switch plates cracked in half. tile floor chipped, it is just amazing to me that people can live this way. That people I was patient with, brought food and toys over for their little grand frog son, would do this, and THEN beg me to remain friends with her, saying I am the only friend she has had. grrrrr!!!! I am grateful that I will be able to finally get this cute place back in shape, and that soon I will be looking back with the pride.

As I roll up my sleeves, I will put my best foot forward; I'm confident the place will look as good as new before I know it! So, even though it isn't pretty now, it is just the two of us glad it won't be long before we won't have to tip toe along or step over the puddles around here anymore. We hope your path ahead of you is smooth and if not, that you strive to be as patient as you can, cause it will all work out in time.

It is better to be a patient man than a warrior...Proverbs 16:32

Yuck!!! Unbelievable. My parents managed a 77-unit apartment building after they "retired" from the ministry. They did it for 9 years until Dad really shouldn't be on ladders any more and on top of roofs (rooves?) Anyway, they saw some horrendous sights as well. I wish you the best! Are you going to move into it, then?

my daughter goes through this with some property she ownes and can't sell because of the area, so she rents and it really is amazing the shape people leave it in.
Good Luck!
PS...I love your fall trees!!

I love to meet new people, too and all of you are great, I am fascinated with the blogging world! Thank you for visiting me too!

Hi Pamela,
Sounds like you've got your work cut out for you! It's interesting that often renters have little respect for someone else's property.
Guess they figure they really have little to lose.
I'm sure you'll make it look cute as can be in good time..

Oh my! That sounds like a Lewis Carroll type story. What a mess. My younger daughter and her husband have had rental properties and one in particular was a disaster. They cleaned up that house after the tenants moved out and sold it. Good riddance!

That is outrageous!! I have heard stories similar to yours and still can't believe people can be like that. My in-laws rented out their little winter home in Florida many years ago, and the tenants absolutely trashed it to the point where it wasn't worth fixing. Terrible!!
You'll be in my prayers as you clean up and fix up. I'll pray you get better tenants next time too!! I'm proud of you for the testimony you were to the Frogs. I know God will use that.

Wow. It sounds like you're going to be a busy bee! Have fun....

Thanks for your comments on my 125th post! You helped me reach my goal!! :-)

I haven't know you for very long Pamela, but I think your "green" described you very well. I am so glad I've gotten to meet you. I look forward to seeing your cute little picture in my comment column. You are so very sweet.

Hugs Pamela:-) I love your new background...seems we're all learning how to remodel our blogs! hehe What a shame that family destroyed such a beautiful home...makes me angry knowing how some people just don't have any respect for property! Hopefully your next tenants will be someone who loves it as their home. Wish I was there to help you clean up...I'm good at painting now! LOL

Oh it's so frustrating going through that. A friend of mine just moved to another state, bought a house and when they moved in the previous owner had left it all dirty, food in the refrigerator, electricity cut etc.....it's a disaster.

Good luck :)

Love the new fall layout you have going here!

So sorry to hear about the tenants and the mess they left behind! I don't understand how some people can be so disrespectful of other people's property like that!

Can you believe how some people live? Good luck with all the work.

It really is hard to imagine how people can do that much damage to a place. What a shame. But on the bright side at least you're done dealing with them. Hope the next tenants are a lot better.

At 4:39 PM, Blogger Amy said...

That is heartbreaking. I will be praying for more respectful tenants for next time!
I like the fall background on your blog! Thank you for your comments on mine. Heather at Goofy Girl did my design. I have no clue how to do anything, but maybe copy and paste a banner :o)

It is really unbelievable what some people will do. Sounds like you will have your hands full getting it all back in order. Good luck!
