Waiting, Waiting, Moving!
I heard back from the property management group and we got the apartment! Hooray! Things are on hold, however, until the lease is ready to sign and the keys are in our hot little hands. This is such a very very good thing. The landlords of doom came over last night with a letter stating that they're going to repair/remove mold, windows, cracked ceiling, etc over the course of three months. This was followed up by a list of things we have to do like move all of our bedroom furniture into the living room several times to allow for mold cleaning, keep the heat on but also the fans running (can we say waste of energy?), and do some general cleanup outside the house. They ended by saying that we would be required to sign another one year lease with rent raised by $100. Thank goodness we have a place to go that is clean and bright and not with these landlords. The property has not been maintained well in the seven years we have lived here and every time something is to be replaced they act like it's our fault. Um, yeah, it was totally our fault that the 30+ year old refrigerator stopped working and that guy who came to cut down the tree in the back yard? Yeah, our fault he never showed up for work after the first day. Or that the electrician put the grounding rods in incorrectly. Or that the plumber left refuse underneath the house. Sheesh. Good riddance to you and helloooo new apartment!
