Landlord
Posted on: 28 Apr 2018

 My landlord doesnt do his job. When i call and ask for him to fix things he takes his time or blames it on the weather. Let him tell it im the only person who pays their rent out. Mind you he has about 15 other homes. What are some ways I can make him do what is expected of him?

					I’ve heard of people suing their landlord for not doing what is expected of them. If you have proof keep it just Incase it gets to that level. As stated before some people get things fixed or fix it themselves and it’s deducted from their rent.

					There are landlord tenant laws in every state. You can use him for not doing what's he supposed to do

					My grandparents are landlords to several houses. Here is what you should do. Look at your lease carefully, make sure there isn’t anything that says the landlord won’t pay for repairs for the house. If there isn’t anything stating that, pay for the item that needs repaired (doors, sinks, carpet, etc.) and fix it yourself. Then when your landlord asks for the rent, give him the money with the cost of repairs (and a receipt of the items you repaired) deducted. 

For example: Rent is $1,600 a month, renter bought and replaced the garbage disposal for $100. The renter would give the landlord $1,500 along with the receipt for the $100 garbage disposal.

					There should be a local rent authority in your area to report him to. They will check out the situation and give him to to comply. It may get him to work a little faster in the future. You could probably call the clerk of courts or the city office to find out who to contact.

					Why not get pictures and videos of him and have them screened at the party. That way people can see pictures of him. Maybe have a few people speak about him and what he did throughout his life. Having his favorite food wouldn’t be a bad idea.
