    But if they have the money to pay for it what’s the problem?

    Because they shouldn't be paying to live somewhere? Landlord is still just leeching off of anothers labor

    If you're not comfortable with that then that's fine I really was just curious

    You could say feudal lords did the same thing

    Tenants could easily maintain their own property

    The only thing egregious is people who own multiple properties that are uninhabited. You should be taxed heavy if you don’t at least rent them out.

    Ok let’s try this. Let’s say I buy a house and I’m charging someone to use it as a shelter. That person pays the rent with no problem every month, but suddenly due to unfortunate circumstances they can’t continue to pay anymore and has nowhere else to go. So I decide to allow that person to stay there rent free instead of evicting them. Then I will be a good landlord, don’t you think?

    Was more curious about it as background as to why his opinions are so far from my own, not specifically related to this thread specifically

    You missed the point being why not say it’s evil to charge for food? Or water?

    Both are more essential.

    No because if they never had to pay in the first place maybe that unfortunate circumstance is avoided

    Besides if we argue in favor of landlords because there might be some good ones then that still leaves tenants at the landlords mercy.hoping they got a "good" one

    I agree ppl shouldn't be charged for either

    But farmers are being directly compensated for their labor at least

    Landlords aren't doing any labor

    I'm not gonna jump into this argument, but landlords do less than the bare minimum when it comes to maintaining properties lol

    Being a landlord is a mix of labor and an investment. Sometimes they are more hands-on and keep up the property, other times not.

    Are you also against capital investments?

    No. That unfortunate circumstance is that they lost their job, and me as a good person decides to stop charging them for rent. Now they have a house, whereas before they didn’t have one.

    Some are definitely slum lords but there are some who are solid.

    There aren’t many things worse than a scummy landlord
