Most of the anonymous posters on the LPA website are regular delinquent tenant posters from other “free advice” websites. Feel free to ignore their rhetoric. Their perspectives are skewed due to a lack of financial accountability to the property and moral obligation for either the landlord or lease agreement. While I am being kind, some landlords just call the "TROLLS."
You're acting like a little kid. The landlord is fixing all of these problems that he inherited. You're acting like he's just trying to raise the rent for the heck of it and is not trying to fix the place. The issue here is the tenant who does want the landlord to fix the place up. Why? Because the tenant knows the LL can charge higher rent if new appliances and better windows are added. The tenant doesn't want to pay that. The tenant wants to pay for a place with a bad roof, bad windows, and bad appliances. Not for a place with a new roof, new windows, and new appliances. How is the landlord at fault here? He's being blocked from doing the repairs you are so adament he needs to do to not be a slumlord. Get a life.
