Top 10 Worst Tenants in America

Triumph Property Management in Las Vegas hears a lot of horror stories from landlords with self-managed properties. This award-winning management company often steps in after things have gotten out of control for DIY landlords.

In an effort to educate landlords of the perils associated with poorly-managed properties, Triumph has compiled a list of the Top 10 Worst Tenants in America. These pictures speak a thousand words.

This anecdotal list provides a shocking chronicle of the flotsam left behind from exceptionally bad tenants. What is not apparent from the descriptions is how much each of these wrecks cost the landlord.

Take, for instance, the tenant dubbed “Vincent Van Go Poop”, or one who kept a stable of horses in a residential neighborhood. In one photo, it’s what you don’t see that counts. Another tenant allowed a homeless man to set up camp on the back porch, complete with a bucket toilet. In a picture of the remains from a hoarder, it is hard to notice that a hundred cats lived in the unit at the same time.

The list gives every landlord a chance to see what it would be like to open the door of their rental property and find they’ve rented to one of the country’s worst tenants.
