SPECIAL NOTE: Yes ago, I rented out a house near my own house to a group of University of Texas students…4 young men, I was very particular about they informing me if they should encounter any problem with my house. I enjoyed mowing my own yard and I would often go to my rental property to mow the yard, clean the deck and make sure the yard stayed clean and attractive. Until one night, I was showing my house to a friend and saw a large object out in the yard, To my dismay it was a door from one of the rooms in the house, Immediately I confronted the students and reminded them of our deal, which was to inform me if there should be any problem with the house, A boy had a fight with his girlfriend and somehow he had made a big hole in the door to the bedroom. His solution, threw it out into the yard! I gave them a notice to move out within a certain period per the contract agreement, And I will forget what I told them: “Your parents are rich. I am not interested in your money to replace another door, I prefer my original house, original door.” I said nothing more,,,to some kids, money will solve everything…it is like a million dollar reward or a court settlement to replace your leg or arm, etc…Young people today, many of them, think money can buy you everything you want or need. And we see this everywhere…with rich students coming to live in USA and they would trash the apartments because they have the money…what you need to understand is that many young people today in China are not taught the responsibility about anything…their parents take care of everything…when you have a baby, you parents will take care of your baby, etc etc etc and I can tell you stories and stories about how young people today in China have no earthy idea how to take care of an apartment, etc…they are not taught any sense of responsibility for anything…again I am telling you to live in China for a period of time, and you will understand the behavior of today’s Chinese youth…parents have money and the children think money can solve everything for you…I would not rent my house to Chinese students in USA…I would not, simply because they are spoiled and irresponsible about their own lives, not to mention a rental property!

Chinese landlord shocked as ‘well-groomed’ millennial renters leave flat looking like a pigsty
Tenants smashed furniture and television and left without paying all their bills

A flat owner was shocked after his “well-groomed” millennial tenants left his newly furnished flat in north China in a shambolic condition, filled with broken furniture and rotten food, and then disappeared without paying all their bills, according to local media.
Photos and video shared by the owner showed the condition that flat in Dalian in Liaoning province had been left in after less than a year – including piles of rubbish, a cracked granite table and walls stained with soup and sauces – and contrasted them with images of the place in a pristine condition before he started renting it out.
The renters also left about 700 yuan (US$102) of utility bills unpaid and then cut their contact with the flat owner, Peninsula Morning Post reported on Saturday.

The flat owner, identified only by his surname Wang, told the newspaper that it may cost about 6,000 yuan to tidy the place and repair the furniture.
“They only paid 3,200 yuan as deposit, which is not enough to cover the loss,” said Wang.
Last year Wang leased his flat to two young women and thought they would take good care of the property, the report said.
“They were in their twenties and they dressed up very nicely,” said Wang.
Later one of the women moved out and the other’s boyfriend moved in.
After that Wang, who was working in south China, received several calls from neighbours complaining about the noise and strange smells coming from the flat.
He said that woman had told her that the granite table and television had been broken during a fight with her boyfriend. They messaged Wang and promised to replace them, but then failed to do so.
When the rental period was about to end in June, Wang found that the renters had started to ignore his messages, the report said.

After the contract finished and the pair of lovers left, Wang went back to Dalian to reclaim the flat, but was shocked by the condition he found it in.
“The air was so pungent that I felt a little spark could cause it to ignite,” Wang told the newspaper.
After seeing the room, Wang tried to call the woman to discuss compensation, but she cut off all contact with him.
Wang decided not to pursue the matter any further and used his own money to make good the damage.
“I tried to call cleaners to tidy the room, but after they arrived and saw the room, they all dropped my request no matter how much I offered to pay,” he said.
He had to clean up the worst of the mess himself and then pay the cleaners back into a fit condition to rent it.
“How could such well-dressed women make their living place so disgusting?” he asked in a social media post on Friday that included pictures of the damage.
He added that parents should educate their children about household duties and hygienic habits.
