Landlord shoots tenant over utility bill dispute

Landlord shoots tenant over utility bill dispute

A landlord shot his tenant on Thursday night in a dispute over utility bills, El Cajon, California sheriff’s officials have said.

The tenant confronted the landlord, who pulled a gun and fired two rounds, sheriff’s Detective Garth Schick said. One round missed, but the other hit the victim in his upper thigh.

This all came about after the 48 year old tenant thought his landlord had shut off his electricity and so went to his home to complain.

Thankfully, in the UK Landlords do not have to go to such extreme lengths to protect themselves against rogue tenants !! By using comprehensive and far reaching tenant referencing tools, only available from Tenant Referencing UK, landlords, agents and councils are working together to prevent problem tenants like these from moving from property to property, causing the same damage to landlord’s incomes, investments, reputations and sanity!

It’s a well known fact that over 80% of those who actively participate in anti-social activity rent their homes and with renters set to dominate the next generation this will inevitably increase, IF landlords do not take action now.

Unsurprisingly, the majority of tenants find disruptive neighbours the most off putting factor when looking for rental accommodation. Furthermore, the most ‘tenants from hell’ manage to gain access to a new property after leaving their last landlord simply because their behaviour, rent default and/or property damages were not registered in time to stop them.
