There's not much I enjoy more than watching a property feud erupt. I recently came across the following post on the Fayetteville Craigslist site:
The text of the post indicates that the landlord and the neighbors have been fighting over a local ordinance that prohibits more than three unmarried people from living together. The post is a great example of how routine disputes between landowners can escalate into bitter fights:
Possible vacancy coming soon! Check back for date-availability.
Neighbors and City are attempting to chase out engineering students, so we need no more than three unrelated persons to sign the lease. We don't care how many people visit or how long they stay - just don't get caught. Must agree to have a goat in the front yard and never to bathe it. (We will provide the goat, food, water, and you won't have to take care of it or anything. The goat will be equipped with a weather-proof microphone and small speakers. We want to be sure the neighbors can see, hear, and smell the goat.) In the warmer months, we encourage you to make sweet sweet love, loudly, with the windows open. We might provide a microphone and speakers for that, too, if our attorneys approve.
Two beds, one bath, one living area on each of two floors (total: 4 beds, 2 baths, 2 living rooms). Bonus room is plumbed for a wet bar or could be used as a fifth bedroom. Huge fenced backyard features an upstairs covered patio, downstairs deck, hot tub hook-up, and fire pit. Huge oak trees in front and backyards.
Laundry chute from upstairs bathroom to downstairs. All hard surface flooring (wood and tile).
House has parking for six vehicles, but you can walk to campus quicker from this house. Wonderful set-up for students.
