Being a landlord sounds like such an straight-forward task, then people sign a contract to live in the spaces you supply & then you collect money each weekâ€¦ While this is partially true, it’s only part of what I do.
I’m also responsible for responding to our tenants & making sure everything in the rental properties are working correctly & keeping an eye on their behavior.
For the most part, I’ve never rented to anyone crazy. There are some people that don’t quite understand that they’re renting though, & they make changes to the properties thinking that they own the locale. Before our tenants are allowed to transport in, I make them sign a contract stating that they can’t change anything structurally & if they make any cosmetic changes, they are responsible for it before moving out. I didn’t consistently do this, but you suppose what they say about 1 person ruining it for pretty much everyone. There was a previous tenant who took it upon himself to install window AC units into various of the windows, even though the two of us had central AC. He never complained to myself and others about the temperature of the house, but obviously it wasn’t nice enough. window AC units aren’t terribly luxurious, but they don’t look as nice & they take a lot of electricity. I didn’t say anything about the AC units because I knew they could be taken down, however he never took them down when he left. I tried reaching out to him about coming & getting them, however he never answered our calls. Now I’m left with various window AC units that I don’t want.
