When I first purchased a building that includes four different apartments, I was eager to make some much needed improvements! I devoted a good amount of time to landscaping as well as curb appeal for the building.
I weeded the gardens, trimmed all of the shrubs as well as purchased some beautiful potted plants to add some color to the place.
I upgraded the shutters as well as painted the doors as well as trim. I asked the renters if they had any drawbacks or concerns with their accommodations, however three out of the four renters told me that everything in their apartments was perfect. The last renter expressed various issues with the water pressure from the bathroom as well as kitchen sink faucets. I went into the property as well as found that the aerators were simply jammed. I demonstrated how to detach the aerators, rinse them as well as reinstall them for my tenant, but a few nights later, the tenant called me up to complain that her cooling equipment wasn’t providing reasonable cool air. When I went to check the cooling appliance, I hastily realized that the air filter was truly disgusting. I showed the tenant how straight-forward it is to detach as well as clean the air filter. Over the next two weeks, the tenant reached out to me multiple times. She needed help replacing light bulbs, plunging the toilet as well as tightening knobs on cabinet doors. I finally was exasperated as well as told her not to call me again unless she was faced with a real life emergency. Two nights later, she called all over again. I refused to answer this time around. She called back 3 times right in a row, however expecting something completely ridiculous, I finally accepted her call. She then was telling me that the water tank had ruptured as well as flooded the apartment.
