Avoid Renting from a Slumlord with Tenant Representation
June 27, 14
When searching for any type of rental property it is highly-recommended to begin your search through a professional real estate broker. There are many benefits to allowing a professional to handle the search itself, but one of the biggest benefits of all is the complete avoidance of the dreaded slumlord.
If you've never rented from a slumlord consider yourself lucky and highly-fortunate. If you're not familiar with the term slumlord, a slumlord is a bad landlord. When renting from a bad landlord, you may have to fight to get repairs made. Having a landlord who doesn't care about his or her property is a situation you want to avoid.
Consider this, what would you do if your Air Conditioning went out during the summer and your landlord wouldn't return your phone calls? Or, what happens if the toilet stops flushing and the landlord won't return your phone calls? These are situations that can result in pandemonium within the office, hassle, stress, and inconvenience.
