My landlord was really bad about making necessary changes to the home.
I was constantly calling him about repairs that he just left.
When you leave things, a house tends to deteriorate. I warned the guy that his air conditioner wasn’t up to snuff. The guy refused to call a cooling specialist. So mold formed on the walls and created stains. I was constantly fighting bugs in the house. He also wouldn’t repair anything like the stove, dryer or the dishwater. So the stove only has one working burner, the dryer frequently falls apart and the dishwasher leaks and is ruining the tile floor. The worst was when I called the guy about his roof. I noticed that every time it rained the hallway had water come down. I saw bubbles forming on the ceiling and it left a warped look. It looked like you could poke the drywall and it would come down. I even emailed pictures to the guy. Nope, he didn’t call a professional roofing business about it. When I first noticed it, there was a single spot. He could have gotten away with a quick roofing repair. It then graduated into a massive roofing repair. I have since left that rental home and I frequently think about it. How long can a roof go with water leaking into it? I would think the entire framework would be rotted in a matter of years. That guy is single handedly ruining his investment but letting it stay damaged. A little maintenance could really go a long way into making his home better.
