Then don't... Because there are many of them out there and they make life difficult for both landlords and good tenants alike. Zach 58 is absolutely right... most of those deadbeats know how to milk the court system well enough leach off their landlord for far too long, causing unnecessary aggravation and higher rents for legitimate tenants.
I think you misunderstood me. I was agreeing with him. I wasn't going to argue that deadbeats exist. They definitely do. I was just also pointing out that there are bad landlords who would otherwise make good tenants suffer if it were not for those same laws that the deadbeats manipulate to their advantage.
