landlord 1When you first move into a new apartment or rental home, you have a lot of work ahead of you. Moving in your own things is, of course, one of the most important, but you also have to make note of any repairs the real estate agent or landlord alerted you to when you signed the lease, and you have to begin noting anything else that might be wrong.

Now, I will be completely honest with you. Depending on your personality, it can feel kind of awkward to tell your landlord about things that may not be working — and depending on what kind of landlord you have, the whole process can be either easy or difficult.

Say you are renting an apartment in an actual home, for instance. If you have a problem with hot water or water pressure, your landlord may say hey, sorry, it would be too costly to fix this, you’ll just have to make do.

What do you do in that case? Any tips or suggestions?
