They find a seemingly perfect tenant in the suave Carter Hayes (Keaton), who impresses them with a wad of greenbacks and moves in immediately.

He starts his own construction inside the house, breeds roaches, entertains shady characters and uses every other trick in the book - even inciting Drake to brutally beat him up - in order to to turn circumstances in his favor and get the young couple to forego the property for a paltry amount.
