Linda asks…

I rent a duplex, we split the water and gas in half, They installed a washer /dryer. Should I pay less now?

The washer/dryer is in a common laundry room area. I offered to pay half for the appliances so that we could both use it. But they are uncooperative. The landlord said the washer /dryer responsibilities are not his problem. I want to know if this is legal.

Administrator answers:

Use the laundromat down the street.
Track the changes in the bill, if any.
Call the utility company and ask for the average usage of a washer and dryer. Using this information, calculate the difference in the utilies and determine an approximate deduction. Provide copies of your findings to the neighbor and the landlord along with your reduced payment and a deduction explanation letter. Be very detailed and point out that you only want to do what is fair. Make another offer to compensate the neighbor for 1/2 cost of the machines in exchange for 1/2 ownership and 1/2 maintenance responsability. Put it in writing to bvoth the landlord and the neighbor and save your copy. If it doesn’t work out…and I don’t think it will…tell your landlord you are moving out and find another place.

Web sites are a good place to find an apartment or house to rent, if you want to go through the entire list to find one in your state and then city.

The best place to look for places to rent is to go to the yellow pages of your telephone book, look under property managers.

These individuals list properties for rent in certain areas, so make sure you select the areas in which you wish to rent.

Call several of the property managers listed there, tell them you want a list of properties that they have for rent. Some will fax, email or mail the list of local places to rent along with the address, number of bedrooms and bath rooms, amenities available, such as washer and dryers or gyms, the monthly rental of the unit. Most will include a rental application. These list will include the monthly rental required, if a lease or month to month agreement will be signed. They will also indicate if they will accept Section 8 vouchers.

They might indicate a web site that you might visit to get their list of places to rent. It does not cost to get a rental list from a reputable property manager.

Some will require you to stop by their office and pick up the list. A lot of them post their list outside so the list are available 24/7 360.

Make sure you don’t fall for the scams and purchase a list as 70%-80% of these list are composed of free list they have compiled. They are not the property managers of any property in most instances.

You might also google Property managers in whatever city or community you want to live in and see what comes up. Again do not pay for this information as it is free from reliable property managers.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.
