World’s Worst Excuse for Breaking a Lease

by | Apr 16, 2012 | Rental Property Management Tips

A tenant in New Jersey broke her lease and filed a lawsuit against her landlord, claiming her rental home is haunted.

The woman, her fiance, and her two children moved into the home six weeks ago, according to a report in the news. Each claims to have witnessed a number of paranormal occurrences, including clothes flying out of closets, doors opening and closing on their own, and menacing whispers the tenant claims to have recorded.

The tenant says that she was forced to abandon the rental and move her spooked family to a nearby hotel.

Last week, she filed a lawsuit against her landlord demanding the return of her security deposit.

According to the report, the landlord has filed a counter-suit to enforce the lease agreement.
