Would you continue a lease to a long term tenant who was in all other ways a good tenant, but was an *** to work with? Every time you have communication with this tenant, they are angry, and confrontational, but they pay rent on time, and maintain the property nicely.

If you would, would you also go out of your way to keep them? eg. would you cut them slack if they had a rough month?

Some things I could let slide...like rudeness. I can't let non-payment or destruction of the property slide. A renter that pays on time and doesn't damage the property is like gold.

Once you start giving the tenant slack on rent, it can begin to be a catch-up game after.

While it is unpleasant to deal with person like this, keep in mind that first and foremost you are in a business transaction and the aim of any transaction is to make money. If they're paying on time and causing no other problems like noise complaints or property destruction, just keep cashing their checks as long as it lasts.
