Help to some people

I have used forms when reporting problems with my apartment all the time and it works pretty well. Here is one website I have used.

http://www.uslegalforms.com/landlordtenant/General.htm

When making complaints about noises and such during the night, or people threatening actions. I call the police and get a police report and send it right to the office and make a copy for my records, and send another one right to the main office.

This goes for even when I needed to have my sink fixed. The hose had started a leak, so I needed to turn off the water. I had called, recorded the conversation and followed up with a formal letter to the landlord, in addition I sent a copy right to the main office.

They had said I never gave a notice, but unfortantly, I stood in front of them and dialed the main office number for Goldmark and asked if they got my email, fax and regular mail on the item along with the picture of the problem at hand. My landlord was basically pissed, cause I told the main management that the landlord said he never got the stuff.

I'm 28 years old and have learned alot from my parents. But I have always have gone right to the top and don't play games with anyone.

My landlord was replaced cause after speaking to alot of people in the complexes that were having problem, did the same thing I did. Finally - we got someone who actually does the work that needs to be done.

Make sure - you keep extra records of any information that is handed back and forth.

You have learned a valuable skill to make people accountable. And that's good. Just make sure you always follow that chain and do not attempt to sidestep it. I have seen people attempt to take short cuts in their career moves by bypassing their boss and going above his/her head without giving the boss a chance to deal with a particular situation. It works for the moment, but the boss will quickly try to figure out a way to get rid of you. I once interviewed a fellow who told me he would have no problem going over my head to deal with a problem. I guess he thought that I would feel that he was a go-getter. I saw him as a potential trouble-maker and recommended against hiring him. It is perfectly fine to make people accountable, just make sure you always give them the chance.

Nice thing is - I own my own business. Two of my old bosses are my customers.

When you call the cops aren't they required to report it to the rental office? My old downstairs neighbor played music all day and night EVERY DAY. I complained to the cops so much then before I knew it, they were evicted.
