A little extreme, perhaps

Happened to see this article on my Facebook wall today: Rental dispute leads to Edmonton home being torn apart

The tenant, apparently, didn’t pay rent for June – and the landlord allegedly first removed the front door of the house, and when that didn’t get her out, came with a truck and a bobcat and started ripping the house apart.

It seems more than a little extreme, especially if the tenant is telling the truth about having missed only this month’s rent.

But as a landlord that has been through more than one tenant-from-hell situation, I can certainly understand the impulse to take drastic measures.

We definitely wanted to when the Legalized Theft Board failed us; joked about it even. But after the damage our ~tenants~ did to our homes, we certainly weren’t inclined to really do even more, ourselves. They cost us more than enough as it was.

In any case, I’m guessing there is a whole lot more to this story.
