Inquiry to Landlords:
Tenant in Apt. 5 paid $850 years ago when he moved in for his LMR.* He paid his current rent for this month at $975 but then gave notice. What is the protocol?
Response from Landlords:
We will return the prepaid rent he has on deposit next week. Please fax all relevant data to us.
BUT I JUST EMAILED IT TO YOU. I do not understand their attachment to faxing. Why can’t an email suffice?! You can print it out just like a fax and yet it will take less work on my part. Am I being punished? Or punked?
*last month’s rent for you lay people
Just when I thought I was done showing available units for this month, another tenant gave notice. What that means for me is- no trip to Portland this weekend. BOO on that! Instead, I get to hang around here hoping people will respond to the ad or the sign and want to snatch up this awesome apartment. Selfishly, I hope they are quiet and do not play a musical instrument or work from home or have a lot of friends since they live below me. Hey, I like quiet.
So far one person has responded to the ad. He emailed me pictures of his current condo so I could get a feel for how he lives and keeps his space. I have never heard of such a thing and honestly, it kind of weirds me out. Don’t get me wrong- he keeps a nice place but… really? At least he would not be another hoarder in the building. We are already full up on those.
Ah, the life of an apartment manager.
