      Freaking nut case. I am thinking a dip in boiling oil is called for.

        Both situations are truly sad! The first one sounds like it could be a CSI episode or something!

          that's horrific. weirdest thing an auction buyer has brought up to me is an urn with the ashes in lie.

            dreid, I got ashes once. Tried to get a hold of old tenant with no luck. Called the funeral home on the tag of urn, they had records of family contacts and came to get ashes to return.

              I agree with Ron, tell him to check out your favorite colored door people down the street. If you have your rules for rental posted and he doesn't meet those then he can't rent a unit from you, simple. Interesting thought for you; as the owner/operator do you have more latitude than the average facility...

              I would error on the side of being generous with rent refunds in such a situation. It's not worth the hassle and mad people talk. A lot. It seems to me the goal is for them to be gone and teh unit to be rented to someone else. Recouping some rent for time they weren't there is not the core issue.
