All of this happened in two months!
I got a court judgement against him, but it's hard to collect from someone in jail...where he ultimately ended up!
These stories are terrifying because you can't predict what will happen in the future. I rented a couple of upscale houses when I was in Las Vegas, and each time I was ready to move out the owners BEGGED me to stay. They each said the house looked the same or better when I moved out and they were scared to try to find new tenants in that city. Crazy stories of renters destroying houses out there and the NV laws now lean far more towards protecting the tenant than the landlord.
