“It’s not MY fault that YOU have a mortgage!” It is a fairly common belief that owners of a rental properties have a lot of money, the reality is that most do have mortgages that have to be paid.

I haven’t paid my rent because I hardly used the home this past month and I will be out of town for a lot of this probably month.
I haven’t paid my rent because actually I don’t feel like paying it.
I don’t have the money for the rent, because I spent it all on Christmas presents for the kids. You don’t expect me to tell my kids they don’t get Christmas presents, do you?
