Mom looking at apt to rent ....first time renter
My 87 yr old mom is selling her coop garden apt, she is Mrs Clean and Mrs fussy!! We saw an apt in building she wants to move. The bathroom does have mold, it's an expensive rent, Should owner regrout? When she moves should apt be clean to move in? Real estate agent said some owners paint, others do not, is this true? All apartments my daughter has lived in have been painted for her, some in all white, one she got choice.The apt has track lighting, is this something she can ask owner to remove? If she removes it oes it usually have to be put back up when she moves? She is moving to expensive gaited community, I think it's a good move for her, she has lived in coop for 48!years, never rented, am afraid nothing will make her happy......but need imput on what to expect from owner of apartment. I assumed all carpets would be cleaned? Am I assuming to much? I do expect to have to clean, but assumed it would be cleaner than when old tenant moves out. When I sold my house, I was to tired after move to clean, I did sent cleaning person to clean bathrooms, kitchen and to vacuum all.
Thanks in advance for your help.
