Care and feeding of a landlord
I've been on the farm for a year, now.
So I asked the landlord the other day how much he figured that I should write on the cheque for rent this month.
He replied that inflation was about 2%, and what was 2% of $450., to which I replied $9.00 (which he, being a business man, had figured out already, I'm sure).
So he asked how $460.00 sounded, and I said O.K.
So wrote the cheque.
And told him that I'd let him get away with it this time, but ...
... a landlord is supposed to give a tenant 90 days' notice of an increase in rent.
That when a former landlord hadn't delivered such a notice until Jan. 3 or 4, some years ago, relative to an increase to take effect April 1, I told him that the increase wouldn't be effective till May 1. The 28 days in Feb. was helpful.
When I told this story to son, he chastised me, saying that it's not important for me to educate landlords.
But - my landlord is a good guy.
Treats me well.
So I didn't mind.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
