One of the perks of renting a property is that when something goes wrong there is someone who not only will fix whatever it is, but they will pay to have it fixed. When you get dealt a bad hand, however, and your landlord refuses to make timely repairs or is often impossible to get ahold of, it can be very frustrating.
If you find yourself in this situation, there are several steps you can take. First and foremost, present your landlord with a written notice about what maintenance needs to occur. This notice should state that you are expecting these repairs to be made within seven days. This way, if the work is not completed by the landlord, you will have a paper trail to use as proof.
From this point, if the landlord continues to neglect the property, further action can be taken. Our suggestion?
