What do investors here think about letting their property to tenants with (possibly) terminal illnesses such as cancer ? Tenants could be young/old, single or with partner. When I look at it from a purely business perspective, it makes no difference to me - the tenant signs a lease -- pays rent on time - looks after the property - pays bills on time - all maintenance requests tended to - both parties honor their contracts - all good. However, if there is a lapse in payments, then all the business perspective aside, I would feel hesitant to go after a tenant who is not well (even if the payments are partners responsibility etc). If there is even an organic delay in tending to repairs and if such repairs cause even more trouble to a dying person, it would weigh very heavily on me. If the tenant renews lease, just knowing the cost of terminal illnesses, I would be hesitant to increase rents. If tenant passes away or commits suicide, it could potentially mean a negative stigma ? Although I think someone passing away is a more acceptable turn of events.
