A landlord I know hired his relative to manage his apartments for him. In addition to whatever money he paid him, he let him live in one of the apartments [free]. The arrangement worked well for a while until the man started abusing drugs. The landlord didn't take any action. How could he evict his relative even though he couldn't do the work he'd been hired to do? When the man no longer had money to buy drugs, he started working with burglars. He'd tell them which tenant wasn't in, the burglars would break in and once the stolen stuff was sold, they'd split the proceeds. The tenants [those who'd had their stuff stolen] demanded that the man be evicted since they suspected his involvement. Landlord didn't take any action. Some of tenants moved out and realizing that he'd lose a lot if he didn't evict his relative, the landlord had no option but to chuck him out. Think twice before hiring a relative to be your estate manager. Many can't be trusted.
