We are moving. I called my landlord last week to tell her that we will be gone by Feb 5th. We have a 6 month lease signed. Our 6 months is up in Feb. I told her we are going to pay rent for Feb because it is in our agreement and that gives us extra time in case we need it.
Anyway, we have our own washer and dryer that we brought into this house because this one doesn't have any. My DH is buying me new ones. We called her to see if she wanted to keep them for the house. We also wanted to talk to her about her looking at the house to let us know about getting our deposit back. She didn't answer the phone call or the text we both sent her. She finally came over on Sun unannounced and seemed surprised that we were there. She saw my DH and rushed back to the car and said "I'll be back after church". It was weird and she never came back.
She finally called last night and was way rude. She said she wont look at the house until we are gone and that she didn't want the washer and dryer (in a rude voice like we were being ridiculous even offering them to her). Fine whatever. But then she said that anything could happen between now and when we are moving. We put her down as a reference because she was always nice to us and we were never late with rent or had any problems with her. I hope she didn't say anything to the new place we want to move just to keep us here. Rent is due by the 5th of each month. Is it just me thinking she is acting strange? Is it normal for landlords to act like this? My last landlord was amazing, we never had any problems with him.
I didn't clarify. The first time I called her she told me she wanted to start showing the house before we left. I was not expecting her to come right away but we thought she wanted to do it before we left like maybe the 3rd or 4th. Then she turns it around like we are pressuring her. I'll try to sell the washer and dryer online. They are in good shape. Thanks ladies I will take tons of pictures and we took some before we moved it. Hopefully she won't try anything funny.
