Tenant Excuses to make Landlords smile

Landlords often have to chase tenants for the rent, often payments are missed due to extraordinary circumstances, Here are some of the best Tenant Excuses For Not Paying The Rent

• “I can’t pay my rent as my BMW is in the shop, and I cannot afford to pay for both.”

• “I can’t pay my rent because the cheques come out of Japan and the plane crashed.”

• “If I move, my friends won’t know where to find me.”

• “Well, you see, I cannot pay the rent because my daughter ate my husband’s wages.”

• “I deposited my wages in the bank ATM and it got caught in the rollers. It took six days to tear apart the machine.”

• “I had my choice of paying the rent or buying a car. I bought a car. I knew you would understand.”

• “I am sure I paid you — YOU must have lost it.”

• “You towed my car away that was illegally parked and I refuse to pay my rent until you get my car out of the pound.”

• “It’s your fault. You deposited my cheque too late. My automatic withdrawals went through the bank before the rent cheque.”

• “There is nowhere else to go. The landlord of the place I applied to will not take me because you are evicting me.”

• “I don’t want to pay the rent because the house is haunted.”
