Can You See a Review of a Landlord?
While an apartment may look nice and meet a tenant’s needs, the landlord may be a difficult. The problem is that tenants don’t know this until after they sign a lease and move-in. At this point, it is to late. Wouldn’t it be nice to see a review of a landlord before signing a lease and have some questions answered?
Questions a landlord review can answer
- How fast are maintenance requests handled?
- What are the pros and cons of the unit/building/house?
- What is the landlord’s history with code/city violations?
- When do inspections take place and what is the notification process?
- What is landlord’s history with lease renewals and evictions?
- How are safety concerns handled?
