jennylove Posted August 22, 2017 Share Posted August 22, 2017 I'm on a work assignment 800 miles away from home, I've been here 6 months. I took my company stipend to pay for my housing while here. I found a guy who was renting out a furnished studio (no kitchen) in his mansion with a private bathroom and private entrance into my unit. He was on Craigslist. He wanted a deposit in case I ruined any of the furniture, etc, but according to our "rental agreement" I would get it back if there is no damage, which there is not. I gave him a 8 weeks notice of my last day. Ever since then, he's been very obnoxious. He sends at least 2 texts per week asking when I'll be leaving because he needs to enter my unit for a showing, or to make a repair, or he reminds me to take out my trash on Mondays, etc. I told him he is harassing me, but he said he can kick me out at anytime since I don't have a lease agreement with him and that I need to be more respectful or else he will do just that. I've been putting up with this for several weeks. I have 1 week left. I asked him if Next Tuesday at 8 am will be a good time for his final walk through and my deposit return. He said his wife will walk thru since he'll be out of town. I then asked if she'll be giving g me cash or a check for my deposit return. He replied with an angel emoji. I asked again, and he replied with a smiley emoji. He's clearly playing games. I can't take him to small claims court b/c I live so far away and it won't be worth the air travel and headache. But because he's been so obnoxious and quite frankly making my life hell, I may threaten to report him to the BBB and IRS after I depart. He has other ppl living here, 1 guy is also long- term and the others are a few days here and there every week for 100/night. I really don't think he's reporting any of this to the IRS, it's not thru AirBnb. Should I call them or just threaten it on my last day? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
