The whole "tenants are clients" thing is propaganda and untrue.
So save it!
Clients in normal business can't do what can be done (and is done regularly) to us.
We are more like 'state controlled investors who take all the risk with no support."
Renters are "the unhoused which the state wants us to shelter, while being state controlled, in return for un-guranteed payments."
You want to be treated as a "customer." Open up the market, get the government sucking us all dry out of the picture, with landlords being treated and protected as true "businesses"...then you will be treated as a customer. As of now, you are pleb.
I read there is some tenant activist who raves about the rental market in Texas. Wonder why it's good for renters (lots of nice places/good prices) and owners...?? Take a look.
Boo hoo for you poor landlords. LOL
All risk no support-- no buddy thats what CMHC does on behalf of your lender when all u needed was 5% down (read 95% leverage) to become a landlord. Up until they changed the rules regarding 2nd properties.
Thats the reason there are so few good tenants left, every brought houses as credit was easy and a ton of people got into the landlord business as there was no other busniness in the world were with 5% leveraged you can finance 95% of a "business" and that loan is underwritten by CMHC- a govt lobby. So now you guys are competing against each other for lousy tenants, wll the while crying about govt regulation. Sorry folks, but without CMHC-- govt regulation, at least 50% of LL would not be in the business or would not have as many rentals as they do. Thats why there is so much downward presure on rents in the GTA.
Seriously, landlord tenant act has been slanted towards tenants for the last 20 years, so if you purchased in the last 20 years, you knew full well what you were getting into. The reason the laws are the way they are is because in the past, landlords have proved (or the bad apples anyway) they cannot self regulate.
The attitude dispalyed here really bothers me, I always give the benefit of the doubt but you guys are the most jadded bunch of folks I have come across, ever.
Its a business, if you guys dont like it then sell and get out, but dont cry about it like a little baby. Th
Always attacking the reasonable, so as landlords, do you agree or disagree that in this case, if the tenants receive parking tickets while removing cars the landlord should pay?
