Our grandkids played in front of our rental unit last year.
A friend of mine inherited a house in Waialua after her mother died. She rented it out to a woman, who stayed there for a number of years. Then, this tenant moved out, taking with her my friend’s art works that had decorated the house and other valuable items. There was nothing my friend could do. If she took the tenant to court to retrieve her valuables, it would be her word against the tenant’s as to who the rightful owner was.
With this in mind, I made an inventory of items in our rental unit and made our tenant sign it. When he is ready to vacate the unit at the end of November, I will see if all our items are still there. If they are and if the unit is clean and in good condition, I will then return his security deposit.
It is such a hassle being a landlord. I am so glad we are getting out of the rental business, especially since the rental unit is part of our home.
Our daughter, Lisa, can now sleep in the room when she vacations in Hawaii.
