$8.69 Part 1
$8.69, $8.69, $8.69 ad nauseum!
So, I moved into the apartment in late 2017 and had my first inspection in March. So far so good. Then I was asked if I could be available for another walk-through, about four months into my twelve-month lease.
I confess, to say even knowing the rental law for twenty years of renting etc, I was concerned. I had asked for the OK to get my fur baby, had been less for over a year now and sad. Still so sad.
So, I also started to worry this extra visit was related. Eventually, my property manager told me they had to bring through a guy to ‘value’ the property.
Oh, my God, what’s happening? Please don’t sell. I just go here. You have no idea the drama it is to move when you have a disability. How much goes astray, how much I would sell, that gets given away, thrown away, donated, LOST, damaged, when you are one-handed.
Anyway, the property manager bought the quiet man through and it was all very sterile and efficient. Not complaining but, my home wasn’t as clean as it had been for the inspection and of course, I was stressed so over thinking. A few months later, I received and email. It was late at night when I got to my email, that day. I thought – Cat? Or what? Oh, no! What? OMG, I got what?
A RENT REDUCTION? WTF?
When do you ever hear about that?
Okay, it wasn’t much, yes, you guessed it. It was only $8.69 per month. But whose complaining.
I haven’t mentally spent it yet. However, I’m breathing a small sigh of relief.
