Just shoot him and sell his body parts.

That is fine as long as there is no damage. In my experience much of the deposits are needed to cover damages not rent.

If you think there will be damage to your property do not rent.

You make it sound pretty simple. Unfortunately it's not. I have rented to people that have great references good jobs and outwardly appeared to me great tenants but still tore things up that were/are expensive to replace/repair.

Bing, I am dealing with the same thing back here in Oklahoma. The damage deposit will not even cover the damage sustained, much less the rent owed....and my renter was a former student whom I've known for 20 plus years. Very sad and can happen anywhere...to anyone.

I have had the same problem so now I do not rent. Could you not put your property in the hands of some one you trust to keep checking on the place.

"If you have proof they owe, $25 to file a claim in magistrates court, you'll get paid!"

Not if it's over a certain amount (around $1000 or so), after that you have to file in Supreme Court and the lawyers fees and hassle won't make it worth your while. Get a deposit and never let it go late for very long. Recovery and eviction can be a long process and as the arrears add up you get closer to having to go to Supreme Court. I managed 12 apartments and I've been in front of the magistrate several times and the system is in the renters favour unless you act quickly.
