â€œThe residential rental business is stinky,â€ summarized Doug McSwain as he took his wife Valerie out sailing off Yorktown in brisk winds ahead of an afternoon of rain. Heâ€™s endured myriad problems with tenants in Huntsville, Alabama, and elsewhere, mostly due to perceived entitlement by tenants and their exploitation of arcane state laws. Valerie once got stung after evicting someone without refunding the deposit within 45 days. â€œI usually do it the very next day, but I was on my honeymoon and lost track of time paying the bills.â€ The court stuck her for penalties and court costs. I suggested they watch the movie â€œPacific Heights,â€ starring Michael Keaton, which would dissuade anyone from renting property.
