By definition, a slumlord is a landlord who tries to maximize profits by spending
the minimal amount of money on property maintenance. Often, slumlords own properties
in poor neighborhoods and charge low rent to tenants as a "deal" to lure in tenants
who cannot pay high rent or who cannot pass a credit or background check.
Slumlords are sometimes the reason behind declining property values in entire neighborhoods and are generally depicted as greedy people who make a living off poor people’s money with little regard to their state of living.
