My actual Landlord lives in another state and I've never met him. But his brother lives in town and manages teh house for him. When Dh and I first moved into the house it was really bad. We had to spend ALOT of time cleaning and painting and what not. Well the people that manage the house are sooooo anal! They called me at work one day because the wicker table on the front porch had blown off and was laying in the yard for two days *we don't use the front porch, I don't even go on that side of the house, so I didn't know it was off*. Then they sent us a nasty letter in Feb. because they came out and dug up trash under the leaves and snow from the previous tenant. It was stuff like popcicle sticks, and pudding cups, things you could tell were from last Summer. Well the actaul owner is in town this week and wants to come look at the house. I am freaking out. I just feel like they are going to judege me. My house is clean. It's not perfect ,but it's clean. I work a full time a day job and on-call night job, and I have an 18mo old baby. Dh works like 13 hours a day in a factory. We haven't even been home this week to mow the lawn and I know he's going to say something about that. I just feel so nervous! Does anyone else have overly anal landllords? How do you deal with them?Answer Question

Just be accommodating or you may end up looking for another place to live! I would tidy up the best way you can before he gets there and if anything is mentioned he has an issue with just kindly explain to him that you've both been working so much but you will take care of it. I know it's nerve racking but like I said ...unless you want to start looking for another place, tell him what he wants to hear. Oh yeh, don't forget to mention anything you see needs fixed that's his responsibility!

I have a great landlord. When we moved in. there it was a mess. It still had stuff from the people before us. She got a dumpster and we didn't have to pay rent for a while until we got the house back in shape and she payed for all materials. Now the house is better. She still take money off the rent for any work we do to the house.
