My landlord, who shall remained unnamed, is among the worst human beings I have ever met.
He never follows through on any of the promises he makes, he doesn’t take me seriously when I go to him with any issues about the property, and he’s just an overall condescending, despicable man. He’s gone so far as to hang up on me in the past for trying to ask where the repair crew he promised a month before was! What makes it even worse is that he has essentially monopolized on rental properties in the area so I can’t simply move away. My job and family and here, so I don’t want to move, but I may have to. I have not had a functioning HVAC system in my apartment for almost a year. The building is a house, split into an upstairs and downstairs unit, with the furnace being located in the basement and the AC out back. Something has made them stopped working, I can not get any air to come through my vents, so my house is without heating and cooling. I have complained multiple times, and on a few occasions he has sent his workers out for the HVAC repair, but they’re just a couple of drunks who don’t know what they’re doing. In all honesty, I think they made the issue even worst because it used to work somewhat before they came out for the first repair. For all the money he is paying these two to come and tinker around with a furnace and air conditioner they can’t fix he could have hired a professional HVAC technician to get the repairs done months ago. I’d pay out of pocket for the repair but I don’t want to let him win by fixing something he is legally obligated to fix in the terms of my lease.
