Re: Landlord question (neighbor drama).
said by Zach 58:See bold above.
As a LL with quite a few rentals, I never unnecessary bother a good, paying tenant. Tenants who are following the lease have a right to peaceful enjoyment of the property which the LL must respect. The fact the LL didn't bother you should be taken as a sign the LL has no problem(s) with you. Staying out of the problems with the neighbors is as simple as minding your own business when it comes to issues that don't interfere with your peaceful enjoyment of your rented premises. If their actions are having an adverse effect on the premises or your tenancy, a discussion with the LL would be in order. Otherwise, keep your head down and rent paid.
Edit to add:
Definitely agree with SwedishRider about the snail's pace of the eviction process. If there is one thing that most bad tenants know by heart, is their rights as tenants to leach as long as the court system will permit.
When I was over seeing properties, I all ways told the tenant(s) that if they never wanted to see me again until the lease was done - all they had to do was pay rent on time and not cause any problems. I would respect their privacy if they respected the property.
All my tenants appreciated not being bothered...except for 2 who taught me all about the eviction process.
So, if your not seeing the LL, then all is good.
