Note to prospective landlords

A note to prospective landlords:

When potential tenants give you a list of things they would like fixed in your property before they move in, do not offer to fix only the cosmetic issues and ignore the safety hazards. That's a real great way to tell said tenants that you cannot be trusted to fix any real issues should they arise, and make them (if they have any sense at all) run screaming.

Our realtor, on the other hand, is made of the awesome. The snark she put in the letter telling them to fuck off was priceless.

Man, I'd love to see that letter.

I'm glad at least you have a good realtor!

Well?!?!?! Are you going to leave us hanging with that comment, or are you going to post this awesomely snarky letter for our enjoyment?

:P

wow, sorry you are having a bad experience with a landlord.

i am a landlord and I find the experience a great responsibility. I want to make sure my tenants are comfortable and of COURSE I want all safety issues fixed. it's my house! I want it to be safe for both my tenants and for me someday when I return to retire in that house. :)

I hope you find a good place with a caring landlord. believe me they are out there. good luck!
