I wanted one day for me because it was my birthday but I did not get around being a landlady.
I had to hang the eviction notice for the house that is rented and the tenant moved her stuff in but has not herself lived there because she is three weeks late on rent and for some reason her story just seems to weird to be real. She has to pay up or get out by the last day of this month. I really wish she would just pack up and go, I know someone else that needs a house and would make a perfect tenant, she works daily too.
But that was not what got me on "my day," it was another tenant that has a problem, this time its the NEW hot water heater, well its just two and one half years old but to me that is new since they last twenty years for the most part, it not heating. The first thing I always do is flip the breakers to make sure it was not flipped off and then wait to see if the water heater is working, she said " nope" so I asked Tony to call the electrician and he told us how to reset the tank, maybe that will work. He also said they hot water heaters tend to kick off when the temp has been reset higher and for us to make sure its not hotter than 120. I will have to run up there today and do like he explained.
The tenant that went to jail had his day in court today and the charges was dropped and the judge was nice enough to drop the court cost to but gave them warning " if I see you two again in the next year I will give you 180 days each." Maybe they will stay sober and not get back in jail.
All of that and I was not in th neighborhood fifteen minutes.
I have to give thanks to God for allowing me to be a landlady :)
