- Landlord: Landlords hold land that they lease or rent to others for use. Usually this is in the form of rooms or homes for rent or lease, but farming and other land use rights can be leased or rented by landlords as well.
Holding a property makes you the owner.
I'm not sure I follow as I believe my comment did not conflict with Snipe's description of the role. As described a landlord is a land owner with some economic ventures tied to the property. When I said that landlord could be a broader term I was simply suggesting that there's a range of professionalism tied to that role as well.
In the case of someone who's collecting the bills should be inside Tax Collector just like Architect is collapsed into Engineer in DSS...
If you're suggesting that a landlord should gone under tax collector then that would be a rather misleading classification imo. To clarify, even if a landlord have some form of economic venture in land or property the landlord is not a "tax collector" any more than an aristocrat or noble.
To elaborate, a real estate investor buys properties to rent out and resell which makes him a rather professional kind of landlord, no? Real Estate investors are those who are more likely to hire someone to collect the bills because they will end up with too many people to collect from, therefore the collecting the bills part doesn't define a landlord as they may very well chose to delegate that task to another party, such as a dedicated collection agency.
