So, to be as honest as I can be, I have to start on a fresh clean slate. When we moved out of our old house into the one we are in now, I only saw the place once. As I have said before, Marylex was working all the time when we were just about ready to move. During that time, sharing a car and all, we didn’t really pay much attention to where we were moving into but more so the fact that we were moving I needed to do it as fast as possible in order to settle in.
As we started to at least try to settle in, we came across hundreds a bunch of problems that are wrong with the house. From ancient appliances to crown molding literally falling off of the walls, I am not lying when I say this has been a difficult transition. Where we lived before, it was a brand-new apartment and all was freshly renovated (the things that were not brand-new) gave us the real “I am home” feeling.
Regardless of these feelings being in the forefront of our minds, the first few weeks we certainly did not feel at home in our new place. The reason I say this is because not only have we have these problems arise but our landlord, the actual owner of this home, refuses to fix anything. We have tried everything from contacting him directly to speaking with the HOA to see if they will help us out. Of course, they are on the side of our landlord, of course. They just had to be. They have urged us to continue to contact him and, basically, bother him until he changes his mind. Be that as it may, let’s be real…
He has not changed his mind. We even had him come to the property with a handyman to attempt to correct all of the problems being that he refused to have our friend Chris, who we trust and has over 30 years of professional experience in this field, which we were very set on as we knew he would be the only one who would be blunt about what is wrong with the house. It makes total sense that he wants to avoid getting anything repaired and that is the reason why he chose to bring his own handyman, who had absolutely no experience. That man did such a crappy job on the things he repaired! So much so, that now all of the reparations have broken again. This includes door and closet thresholds, crown molding problems, and even water leaks.
Luckily for us, he decided he would hire an all-around maintenance company to assist us in any issues we had going forward. This was his idea of getting us off his back. Because I am persistent in nature, every time there’s a problem I sent him a message via email or text with pictures of the occurrence. We do still call the company he hired but they do not cover everything. They seem to only cover appliances and the AC.
You must be wondering why I’m on here ranting like a storm. I will clear it all up for you now. I’m asking for prayer! I’m basically asking for a miracle at this point not because were unhappy, because we just want to be comfortable in our own home and it is so difficult to deal with someone who is that hardheaded. We are basically begging for prayer. Please find in your heart and in your busy schedules to shoot a prayer out to God in the heavens in regards to this situation we are currently battling.
