I rent out some rooms to international students and 2 of them had a huge fight 2 nights ago.  It was 3am and the police came around...
I wasn't there at the time as I was staying at my girlfriends place, but the one beat the other quite badly and pulled her hair out of her head, she in turn bit a huge bite on the others arm and also on her finger.
What the heck!  I told them both you have until Wednesday to get the hell out.

That's a good decision on your part.

I had a tenant get into a fight and got his finger bit totally off.  Now that is a fight!  It was only the tip of his finger, at the first knuckle.  That part is easily bit off, I guess.

Two strangers sharing one room in a foreign land? Sounds like dorm living, but in a dorm, everyone is sharing the same boat. I'd reconsider this approach. Can you get slightly less rent for a single tenant? Less wear and tear on the place and less hassle for you?

What the heck does this mean??

Quote
As it turns out, the ex-cop was an ex-cop because he shot a 16 year old burglary suspect as the suspect was running away.  The kid was only 16, and probably should have been shot at 14, but the cop became an ex-cop.  And prior to becoming a police officer, this ex-cop shot a person, and was charged with attempted murder, but was acquitted as he testified in self-defense.

The kids was a derelict.  He was shot at 16 and was already a career criminal.  If the cops, or one of his friends  would have shot him at 14, society would be better off.

[MOD NOTE:  Advocating for the shooting of wayward children is not something we particularly need here.]

I wonder if the fight was like the movie Kill Bill 1, or more like 2 days in the valley. Best female fight scenes that I have seen.

Yeah, I'd move for an eviction.  Be wary that these combatants don't use a crowbar on your property to help move their furniture out.

They're gone... I gave them a couple of days to move out and they left and told them if they did I'd give them deposit back.

One sent me a text and said she hopes we can meet again.  All is well that ends well!

You might have escaped a disaster there.

I think so too. It really got me thinking about how to rent out that place in the future, that is if I keep it and don't sell it.

All landlords need to know their state's laws very clearly before they evict someone in a situation similar to this.  Some states by statute ban landlords from evicting victims of domestic violence/abuse based on the episodes of violence/abuse.  Also state laws may allow a victim of domestic violence to terminate a lease agreement in order to get distance from their abuser.

You handled that very well. One of my fears was always the tenants taking out their misfortune on my property.

Sorry I'm not to familiar with laws... how do they work again?
