Angeline found her dream job in Grand Rapids, MI; but she lived fifty miles away. She loved her home and didn’t want to sell it, but she didn’t want to drive all that way five days a week either. She reconciled temporarily by leasing an efficiency apartment in Grand Rapids, put the rest of her personal things in one of the outbuildings, hired a management company to find a good tenant, and took out renter protection insurance.
Things went well for a month. After six, there were eviction proceedings. Nobody explained what cleanup would look like post-eviction. Good tenant? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!
