    No visitors between midnight and 8am is reasonable request to most people and having him watch TV in common area when he comes home from work sounds like easy compromise.

    If I could do that, I would. I never wanted to buy the house in the first place.

    At any rate... We all talked last night and Bob said he will be leaving January 1. It was Bob's suggestion.

    Now I need to find a tenant who matches Jack's (and the rest of the houses) schedule more closely. The two tenants and myself both work full time days, so Bob was the only one who was awake at night.

    I wish, my friend.

    Still looking high and low for that "tenant".

    Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes.

    All roommates were given a "rule sheet" (terms + conditions) whatever you want to call it.

    There is also one posted on the refridgerator.

    .
    As a former landlord I sympathize.
    As a former tennant who had crazy neighbours who complained about noise (sometimes when we even weren't home), I can sympathize.
    However I have to ask, what forces were used to make you buy home and then rent it out. I have to think there were other options for a roof over your head.

    He could have rented himself.

    Of course, if you rent a room in a house, you still have to deal with problem tenants, only you don't have the ability to 'suggest' they leave.

    Yes.

    I did not "have" to buy a house. I could have rented.

    But financially, that would not make sense. As andrew indicated, as well, I would have to deal with other people's BS.

    He could have rented a separate apartment or house.

    Could have/would have/should have.

    What's done is done, no sense looking back. I don't think KaeJS thought it would be smooth sailing, but he'll learn from the experience, that's for sure.

    Good luck with the next tenant!

    I think the problem is you trying to fit to people into a basement suite,your basement is probably only going work with one person,family ect.....are you trying to stretch things with what you have to offer....I understand double rent but is it practical in reality.
