    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.

    Sounds like they're digging for money in any way they can. I like the response to the estate, lol.

    Man some people with chutzpah never cease to amaze me. You'd think there would be a 14 year statute of limitations alone that would eliminate requests like that!

    Oh no, they can ask. The answer is no though.
