I work for a Leasing Office and if anyone had questions they could DEFINATELY ask me. I would be more than happy to answer any questions, my company is great with customer service and I can tell you what your landlord SHOULD do and what he is REQUIRED to do. friends me ENVYDUST or email me kristywilki@comcast.net.

Re: ask me
Thanks for posting. We always appreciate good input over here. I can't begin to tell you how much we appreciate good input. We've been inactive for a little while but maybe things will pick back up especially around here where I am since the college students are back. I get comments from them via e-mail all the time from reading this.

Welcome aboard!
