    He shouldn't reduce the rent for the other tenants.
    That would be silly.
    Don't disturb their agreements.
    Just increase it for the naughty tenant.
    This is business.

    Why would your company want to entertain strangers?
    You can be generous to others but that doesn't make it a deductible expense.

    What you report sounds unbelievable.
    Are you searching correctly?
    The uptake from what you are saying is almost no tenant fails to pay their rent.
    Unbelievable.

    Me too.
    A door between the lounge and dining/kitchen area has been removed in the past.
    If I get a query about requiring more heat I'll just reinstall that door.

    This is the age of entitlement.
    Things should be provided in Rolls Royce quality - nothing second best for them.
    If there's a fault, ask for compensation.

    Or the French one.
    Or the USA one.
    Or the Welsh one.
