When doing a regularly scheduled inspection on a property, the manager found tire tracks throughout the living room. These weren’t small tracks from a bike or a scooter, but larger actual tire tracks. When asking the tenant what the source was, he stated that they had simply suddenly appeared there, possibly they were being haunted by a ghost. Upon further inspection of the unit, the manager found missing doors, more tracks, and dark stains that the tenant, again claimed to have been left by a ghost. By this point the tenant and manager are both quite upset and the tenant demands to be released from the lease because the place is haunted.
The manager steps out to call the attorney to find out what his legal obligation is for a haunted house. Does he need to release the tenant from the lease? While pacing in the backyard he found more muddy tire tracks leading through the yard and out back in to the alley behind the home. Unfortunately, the “ghost” had left their four-wheeler parked behind the back fence. They had apparently been bringing the four-wheeler into the home to repair it, since it was cold outside. Hence the need to remove doors, the stains (oil and grease) and the tire tracks.
