For the past 5 years Eric D. Chisholm of Brentwood, Tennessee has rented his suburban home to bad people from Brazil. The tenants are rude, inconsiderate and disrespectful towards homeowners, have created parking problems due to numerous vehicles including a 40 foot RV parked on the lawn, and throw trash and debris around the outside of the home. At any given time, there is either a bathtub or sink sitting in the yard.
The tenants are irresponsible and unaccountable and currently owe a homeowner thousands of dollars due to a dog bite incident resulting from the tenant’s negligence in securing their pit bull. The tenants refused to pay for the damages and blamed someone else for allowing their dangerous dog to escape from a fenced backyard. In fact, the tenant’s dog has gone after several other residents in the neighborhood and is a nuisance.
Two years ago, the male tenant visited Brazil and ended up in a Brazilian jail for nearly two months. The details of the criminal case are currently posted online.
The landlord is the blame for these people and shares in the blame for the tenants’ behavior and incidences which have occurred at the rental home. In fact, the landlord is the problem and eventually will find himself liable the next time something happens at the home that he owns. It is only a matter of time before these tenants become involved in another civil or criminal situation and Eric D. Chisholm will be sued, again.
