Know who/when to call…

Things happen, stuff breaks, things leak, tubs overflow, dryers stop drying, problems, problems, problems! Know when to reach out and contact your landlord if something happens. It’s in your best interest as well as the landlord’s best interest to notify and be notified of anything major that may need immediate attention on the property. Keeping those lines of communication open may be the difference between a $30 repair and a $3000 repair!

Also know when not to call your landlord. If a light bulb goes out, a kitchen knob comes loose, or something simple you could easily fix yourself happens within reason, just take care of it yourself. Most leases will have a clause noting repairs under $50 are the responsibility of the tenant.

It’s also important to know WHO to call and have those numbers handy at all times should something happen.
