What Are The Red Flags Of A Narcissistic Landlord?
Narcissistic landlords will invade your privacy at will. This includes entering your living quarters without your knowledge or consent.
Although this is illegal, the narc sees absolutely nothing wrong with it.
He’ll also have no qualms about pilfering your belongings if he fancies something for himself.
As is true of all Narcissists, smear campaigns and senseless gossip will be a regular occurrence.
He’ll entertain himself by creating drama and chaos for unsuspecting neighbors who would otherwise co-exist peacefully.
These landlords will be unlikely to properly maintain the rental units, and may even refuse to make necessary repairs.
They’re well known to manipulate tenants into paying for the costs themselves.
They make assurances that the expenses will be reimbursed or deducted from the next month’s rent.
This never happens, of course, and if confronted, the narc will flatly deny ever making such an agreement.
He’ll keep up with your comings-and-goings, and take note of your visitors’ habits, as well.
If he sees an opportunity to instigate turmoil with this particular knowledge, all the better.
Sometimes narc landlords damage their own rental properties in order to collect insurance money.
One couple I know lost all their possessions after a fire of unknown origin destroyed their duplex.
To add insult to injury, they were considered suspects and subjected to a lengthy arson investigation.
The landlord had an abnormally high occurrence of similar fires at several of his properties, though he was never charged with a crime.
The voyeuristic parasites may have hidden video cameras and/or recording devices so they can spy on your most private and intimate moments.
Probably the most common red flag is the multiple attempts to gain sexual favors from anyone they deem to be exploitable.
Narcissistic landlords love to prey on vulnerable tenants and will harass them mercilessly.
This is by no means a complete list of red flags. But hopefully, it’ll give you an idea of how despicable these vermin can be.
