Thank you to David Dahill for sharing his landlords story and for being the first to respond to Mark Alexander’s offer to share the stage. For details on how to submit your landlords story please click here.

“I have been a landlord for the last 21 years and was having the horror stories conversation with another medium sized portfolio holder just yesterday. I think I won! I have had houses converted into drugs factories, brothels,and a stolen goods warehouse. One of my tenants was a bank robber (excellent references too) his girlfriend tried to sell me the getaway car, another came to my attention as the police were unhappy that he was keeping horses…inside my house! After being arrested one tenant argued (from jail) that I would be in trouble if I didnt immediately give his mum his deposit, he had been arrested for one count of attempted murder and posessing a handgun – I paid her in cash.

Having said all that (there is more) most tenant stories are totally mundane, they rent the house pay the rent and leave the house a little more worn than when they came. These stories don’t make great after dinner stories, but they are the norm.In short I work when I want and get well paid for what I do. I recommend my job to anyone who will listen.

I am a serial landlord, property developer and property junkie. I happily sacked the boss in 2003 and have been hoarding houses since then.”
