Roommate renovation

Guest post written by Gary Dexter

Because of my job I tend to move around every few years, so I've never settled down enough to buy a place of my own. That means that I've had more roommates than I can count, but I'm so used to it that I'm good with dealing with potential roommate disasters before they happen. I also know how to handle landlords and property managers as a result.

That's when I noticed that our air conditioner wasn't working I went through the old motions of making sure it wasn't frozen over and then called the landlord. I had already done my research and suggested sears home improvement san jose. Surprisingly the landlord agreed with me and had them over almost immediately.

I learned a long time ago that it's best to let landlords know about things wrong with the property, whether it's a broken doorknob or air conditioning unit. Sure, they don't like to pay out the money to get stuff fixed, but you also don't want to get charged with it when you move out because you didn't report it in the first place.
