New Landlord Demands Tenants Restore The Garden To Its Original State, Loses It When He Sees It’s Now Just A Patch Of Dirt

One of the signs of a good landlord is that they’ll appreciate all of the little ways in which you’ve improved their property (with their permission, of course), whether it’s repainting the walls or turning the barren garden into a lush jungle. Meanwhile, a horrid landlord is someone who’s going to micromanage your every tiny move, making you constantly feel on edge and unwanted.

Redditor u/AccurateInstance96 recently shared a story of how he and his boyfriend had spent years improving their rental house and the yard. However, the situation took a turn for the worse when a new landlord purchased the house. The OP revealed how he got back at the unreasonable and controlling man by literally following his requests to the letter. Read on for the full story. Bored Panda has reached out to u/AccurateInstance96 and we’ll update the article as soon as we hear back from him.

Tenants who take care of and improve the property are a landlord’s dream. However, not everyone feels that way

Wow that "milkcarton" commenter was a freakinmoron... "WOW you couldn't afford thousands of dollars a year in extra rent but you had the money to grow plants and dig a hole in the ground during the 5 years of living there??? 🤤🤤🤤". Sounds like some brokeidiot that has never lived outside of a small apartment in a large building...

That was a good tenant. I wish I have one tenant like that. There is nothing wrong with beautifying ones surrounding so long as the landlord doesn't mind. That first landlord has common sense, the new landlord has a mighty lot to learn in this business. Good luck to him.

I rent a house. I'm a landscaper. I've terraced the garden, put down a patio and built a stone BBQ/pizza oven. Landlord doesn't know. Hasn't been around in over 7 years. I pay the rent, he sends round the plumber when I need it. Everyone's happy.

I would love to have you as my tenant, your rent would be so reasonable you wouldn't want to leave.

It's insane what people can lose by refusing to just speak civilly to someone. This guy sounds pretty laid back, considering all the glam-ups they did to a rental property, had the new landlord had any concerns about something he should have just SPOKEN RESPECTFULLY to these guys about it. I'm sure they would've have been more than willing to listen and workout whatever said concerns were. The landlord for sure got what his rude a*s deserved.
