K asked in Home & GardenCleaning & Laundry · 8 months ago

How come the hoarders on "How clean is your house" and "Obsessive compulsive cleaners" are allowed to let their places get to that stage?

Why do their landlords allow it? They should have been evicted long before they appear on TV.

    a lot of landlords don't inspect their property regularly.  They are happy to take the payments-and unless they hear complaints they think everything is alright.  after seeing those shows though--you'd think they'd be popping by occasionally!

    When you own your own home you have no landlord to worry about.

    hoarding is some kind if brain disorder,,about which no one offers a cure except to get some smiling patient leader to drag them around the nose

    and show them living like a caveman cave dame is stupid

    I do wonder why so often the ladies are tubbies,who chomp off camera incessantly

    Hoarders are sometimes difficult to spot! They typically hide their "hoard" from the outside world! Only when they allow a person inside their realm that has enough concern for them is the hoarding revealed!

    I think you'll find they own their own properties, so they can do basically as they wish.  And if they are tenants often the landlord isn't aware and doesn't care as long as the rent is paid and there are no complaints from others about rats, leaks coming from the property etc.

    I seen that the people on Hoarders are owners, owners can get away with a lot of things if the owner doesnt call in an inspection. Also people get away with a messy house because it looks nice on the outside.

    Don't many of them own their own homes? They don't have landlords

    And there's probably laws preventing landlords from kicking tenants out just for being messy. They would actually have to have/cause mold or the walls or something.
