Landlord Repairs: The Steps!

2 years ago

In this day and age it seems that everyone is renting simply because it is so expensive to buy anything.  Did you know that when you rent something, when something goes wrong in the apartment, you – as a tenant is not responsible to fix it or pay for it to be fixed?

Over the weekend, our hot water went out and our landlord was out of town.  What do you do in a situation like that?  Well, that is what we are going to talk about in this blog.  One of the first things that we did was attempt to contact the real estate agent, as they are the ones that I thought to go to first.

Next – I e-mailed the landlord, just so that there was a paper trail.  Finally, I called them – you always want to make sure that you have a witness around whenever you are discussing repair problems, that way there is someone on your side.
