Back in October, DH and I put up one of the bedrooms of our house for rent. We searched for the right person, until we thought we had found it. Well, we asked for a clean, non-smoking, quiet, drug-free, drama-free, reliable and responsible person. So we got one, so we thought.
Ok, because by law we can’t ask publicly to have a Catholic or another Christian with good morals, I had to go the above route. We specifically asked for ONE person.
So this guy we have living upstairs doesn’t care that he wakes us up very early in the morning, very late at night, or a few hrs after midnight. He has let his gf “live” here with him and they go about they’re business that only married people should be doing and they don’t care that we’re in the house. His room right above ours, so we can hear EVERYTHING!!! :mad: So, I’ve had it with this guy. I haven’t sleept well since he moved in (which has been since Oct 22). I am getting to the point I can’t even stand the guy.
He lied to us, he’s not quiet, nor clean, and he doesn’t respect sleeping hrs at all. This morning they woke me up at 7 doing their “stuff”, I was very angry they had woken me up, this had been the first time in a long time to actually sleep through the night. I don’t have to work today, so I was planning on staying in asleep (if I could) till 8-9 am. The other day, we got permission from him to go to his bathroom and fix something with the shower, and the bathroom was more than digusting. Dirty underwear, the sink full of toothpaste (it looks like he has never even cleaned it), the sink is gross, the floor is gross, the mirror is all dirty.
So, he’s dirty, loud, doesn’t care about letting us sleep, he has left his gf live here (she leaves early in the morning and gets here around 11:30 or midnight so we “don’t notice” she’s living here. :mad: What’s gotten me fed up is that they have sex in my house and they don’t care we’re here. They’re LOUD. I’m sick and tired of this. I shouldn’t have to take this in a very Christian home!!!
What I’m getting at is… what can I do as the homeowner? I wanted to write a letter to him telling him he lied about being clean, quiet, etc and that he has the girl living here, and that he is LOUD. I have a copy of the ad I published with all the things we asked for before we let him live here. I plan on giving him a copy of that with a complaint of all the things he’s lied about. Is this something I can do? I mean, in an apt. complex, a landlord won’t let you make noise after 10pm or before 8am. So, why should we allow that in our house?? I mean, and not even having the decency of doing their **** when we’re not home, but do it when we’re here or when we’re sleeping and wake us up???
Yeah, the money we get from that is helping us financially, but I rather have money problems that be living w/this guy. I miscarried my baby last month, and I spent the entire wk at home getting better from the car accident that caused it and from the pain and trauma of losing our baby. He didn’t care I was here trying to rest and sleep. I didn’t even get to sleep once during the day because of the problems above, and he’d be on the phone till about 1am (talking very loud), arguing with the girl upstairs, or making so much noise it’d make me more angry.
Any suggestions on how I should proceed? Is the letter fine? Do I have rights as a homeowner to tell him what he can or cannot do in my house?
