The press might be full of horror stories about nightmare landlords and demonic estate agents, but troublesome tenants are just as common. And they don’t come much more troublesome than Lindsay Lohan, the actress-turned-trainwreck whose antics have made her an absolute nightmare to insure.
Lindsay Lohan is the ultimate bad tenant; unreliable, impulsive, and infamously accident-prone. Worried you might end up leasing your property to a Lohan? Check out our warning signs.
1. If your prospective tenant has played twins in two or more films during their career, be on your guard. They may well pretend to be their own sibling to avoid confrontation during any pre-scheduled visits to the property.
4. If your prospective tenant looks like their weight goes up and down more frequently than Paris Hilton, bear in mind that the faint aroma of vomit might make the property more difficult to rent in the future.
5. If they show up to a viewing in a rented Mercedes with last night’s Cristal on their breath, you can rest assured that this person will trash your property and do a moonlight flit, leaving red wine stains on the walls and suspicious-looking powders in the bathrooms.
If you’re reading this too late and fear you may already have rented your property to Lindsay Lohan, here’s some friendly advice on what to do when she inevitably does a runner, leaving a trail of broken cameras in her wake – flip the mattress and hire a professional cleaning crew. Maybe one that specialises in crime scenes.
