I have been renting apartments and houses since I graduated from high school.
I now own my own home, but it has taken a while for me to get here.
During all those years of renting I have dealt with some really crappy landlords. Most landlords don’t like getting calls from their tenants because they know they are going to have to deal with a problem, so they will ignore the call. Honestly, it wasn’t until I live in lived in my last place before buying a house that I had a landlord that cared about me. One day, I woke up and the a/c wasn’t working. The first thing I did was call my landlord and he didn’t pick up the call. I didn’t really think much of it because landlords are always like this. However, within ten minutes he called me back. I told him that the a/c wasn’t working and that I needed to have a HVAC company come out to the house and inspect the whole HVAC system to see what was wrong. He didn’t even bat an eye and said he would call the HVAC company he used right away to make an appointment for me. I have never had a landlord act this way in over five years of renting properties. The HVAC company came out to my house that day and the a/c was working again in less than two hours.
