I knew that moving into a home owned by friends of husband's was a mistake. When we moved out they were out of town, so they couldn't do an inspection. The real estate agents showing the place were a horror show and a constant problem for us, and while we tried not to complain we did try to let them know. These friends also have the worst kids I know that are "never" a problem or out of control in their parents' eyes. Got an email that they were hurt and upset because we damaged the house, cracked globes on the lights, pulled a curtain rod out of the wall and left a big hole in the wall and left the kitchen/pantry with a nasty smell and the whole house dirty. We did NOT. I cleaned myself SICK making that place immaculate before we left. Scrubbed crud off walls that was there when we moved in, scrubbed floors that were dirty when we moved in, cleaned up after the real estate agents smoked in the house (our lease specified no smoking on the property and we don't smoke at all, not even socially and no way could my kids get away with it with-o us smelling it, but after each showing the house smelled like smoke and we found cig budds in the house on the FLOOR/CARPET!). We are sending them a check and will drop off the keys. We didn't know they were back in town so we didn't leave the keys anywhere because we didn't want them to get stolen and then for us to have to replace the locks/door openers for the garage. I warned husband before we moved in. I say these are HIS friends because I never liked them a whole lot. Mostly because she has a son who is very small of size and is a big bully and very hyper and she refuses to admit that he is a bully because he is 'too small to bully anyone' but he was a huge thorn and made over 1/2 of the boy scout troop quit halfway through the first year because he was so awful to the other kids. I don't have patience for them and am sad to see that my fears were real. I am glad we are OUT of there - the property here is professionally managed and we are not subject to surprise inspections or damages inflicted by the owner's kids that WE have to pay for. I am sure their son pulled the curtain rod out of the wall and is blaming us - I have seen him do it at other people's houses at birthday parties. This kid literally climbs the walls and curtains even at 12 yo but it is NEVER his fault! Rant over, thanks for letting me vent!!
