The landlady got nasty about the late rent! I'm offended!
We've been renting this house for 6 months. The last 3 months we paid late, because my husband was in an accident and we have other bills to pay. My husband explained that to the landlord. The landlord would call us, and then I'd put a check under our doormat, and he could pick it up whenever he wants. I thought this was working out great!
Today his wife calls us all pissed off. She said the rent was due the 15th and it's are responsibility to get it to them on time. She said it's not her husbands job to chase rent dodgers, and that the rent is habitually late. i explained about my husbands accident, but she said her mortgage company doesn't want to hear excuses. They want their money, and her and her husband are sick of our games!
I am so offended! The husband is a laid back nice guy, and he was always so friendly when he came by to make repairs. Why is this B***** suddenly so involved and causing trouble? We had a great landlord/tenant relationship b4 she started all this drama!
She also demanded we set up direct deposit for the rent and get them the rent on time in the future. I think she has a lot of nerve and I don't want to do that. Also, we're not always going to have the money by the 15th. I'm mad that the landlord let his wife treat us like that!
What would you do?
Why couldn't she let her husband handle it! Things were great when HE was collecting the rent!
