Most renters half (or whole) heartedly complain about their landlords, sometimes but not always really meaning the things we say. Landlords and the rental system seem to be necessary evils and we treat them as such, even though our landlords are only trying to do their jobs. Having a professional relationship with your landlord may just take paying your rent on time and being relatively quiet, but if you could have a great relationship with your landlord would you choose to?
Here are some surprising things your landlord wishes you knew and some ways to get above the landlord/tenant relationship.
1. Landlords want you to know that you are going to be around for a while. No landlord wants their tenants to skip out early on a lease, so they are looking for renters who might be around to renegotiate a lease. This saves them time advertising for new tenants and saves you the hassle of finding a new place to rent. Being financially stable and employed is definitely something landlords look out for, but they also want to know that you are living your life responsibly.
