What stuff do you do (not landlord/estate agent) to maintain your rental? Besides weeding and lawns?
We have been in the same rental for 7 years and do not spend a sent more on it than we need. However, the landlord is crap keeping up with maintenance (including what we report to agents) and the house is looking for the worse with all the general wear and tear. We have inspections every 6mths and the same issues are bought up every single time with to action taken.
I needs a coat of paint, new carpets and a water leak damage fixed up. Also deck is falling apart. Can't have my kids out there.
We will be here for a couple more years while saving a home deposit. We can't afford to make the house look better. I don't feel it's upto us?! Finding another rental in not an option, we have been down that road.
Just frustrated we are paying our rent and always 2 weeks ahead (only incase something happens). Yet anything we put forward that needs doing that's non urgent, is never done.
