WXIA Live News

ATLANTA - Each week 11Alive's Chesley McNeil asks viewers and the Atlanta Alive team to weigh in on whether happenings in stories from the week were either fair or foul.

Here are this week's stories. Watch on WATL and play along on Facebook Live!

MYSTERIOUS TENANT

A posting on Zillow, the online real estate marketplace, lists a home in the town of Cayce, South Carolina for sale. On the surface it sounds good... 4 bedrooms, and a backyard cottage that can be used as a rental unit, all for $130,000. 

ut then there's this, sandwiched in the middle of the home description. 

Property is being sold "as-is" with no repairs, no clean-up, and no warranties expressed or implied. Upstairs apartment cannot be shown under any circumstances. Buyer assumes responsibility for the month-to-month tenancy in the upstairs apartment. Occupant has never paid, and no security deposit is being held, but there is a lease in place. (Yes, it does not make sense, please don't bother asking.) 

 

A non-paying tenant you can't get rid of... not exactly a selling point. 

Fair or Foul?
