I friend asked my advice on a real strange one.The estate of a former renter wants $2000.00 in payment for junk that was thrown out when the renter skipped out. FOURTEEN years ago. The guy just died and apparently the family has been mad about him loosing his stuff when he skipped out on his rent. His belongings were stored for 30 days and then disposed of. We drafted a letter to this effect. I will gladly settle the payment of $2000.00 as soon as his estate settles his account with me. Back rent $900 Cleaning and damage repair $1700 Storage and disposal fee $800 Credit for deposit $450 Total principal owed $2,950 Total at 18% compound interest for 14 years $36,664 Credit for disputed amount of $2,000 Grand Total owed By estate $34,664 His attorney laughed his butt off. I had some bold tenants but this is a whole new level.
