As a landlord, does it pay to listen to your tenants?
It may not only pay, it may save you money--especially if your tenants are monkeying around.
Our story concerns tenant Angela Jendralski, who was severely injured when attacked by a monkey kept by another tenant in an apartment complex.
In court, Jendralski testified that for several weeks before the incident she heard noises coming from the neighbor's apartment, including "howling, squealing and cooing," as well as "thumping, bumping and banging."
She said she told her landlord, although he denied this and also denied that he heard any excessive or unusual noises. He did concede that he heard noises, but no more than expected from the one bird that the lease permitted.
