Landlord hosts apartment demonstration with evicted tenant inside

Apartment hunting is stressful, and a surefire way to make things worse is to view an apartment while an evicted tenant refuses to leave.

A TikToker by the name of Kaylah (@shakaylah1) went viral after recording a shouting match between a landlady showing her an apartment and a resident who wouldn’t leave.

“The apartment viewing went wrong,” reads the text overlay in the clip. The woman in the video, presumably the landlady showing the apartment, knocks on a door in the apartment. Someone is speaking behind the door (most likely the current tenant), to which the woman showing the apartment says, “Well, I informed you that it shows twelve o’clock, so.”

As both women argue back and forth, the landlady tells her she gave the tenant 48 hours notice and to “consult with the CHA.” The tenant replies that she will.

“Okay, I wish you’d make sure she told you you were evicted a month or two ago and you should have gotten out of my friggin’ apartment,” replies the landlord. “You should have left my job… You got ten days’ notice, ma’am. However.”

The person behind the door informs the woman that she is getting ready for work. The landlord continues talking to the TikToker and films the interaction. “So we’ll wait until she’s done, my apologies,” she says.

“This woman is insignificant as hell. See how she has that damn place?” notes the landlord as the camera begins to pan around the unit, revealing various items scattered on the floor, including shopping bags, boxes, clothing, and other personal items.

The tenant continues talking behind the door, leading to another response from the landlord. “Bitch, you should have walked out of my fucking apartment. damn are you talking Don’t fucking play with me ho,” she tells her.

The tenant replies, “I’m not talking to you.”

“Bitch, you should have walked out with me,” the innkeeper yells again.

The Daily Dot contacted Kaylah via TikTok comment for more information.

Judging by the follow-up videos on Kaylah’s TikTok account, it seems she didn’t take the apartment, as she explained that she’s still looking for an apartment in the Chicago area.

Other TikTok users who saw her post said the landlord’s behavior didn’t make the best impression on them.

“The rental team would have told me everything I needed to know,” said one.

Another commented, “why is she showing the apartment in this condition,” while @theylovedamia simply stated, “I would never rent from this landlord.”
