How cool is that?!

I have to say that after our experience with our current landlady I'm a little cautious about approaching our new landlord.

So far though, he has been awesome! We signed the lease on March 29th and after paying a half month rent for April, he handed us the keys. How cool is that?!

After we noticed that the dishwasher in the new house is getting rather worse for wear, our landlord offered to buy a new dishwasher. I was stunned! He called the other day to let me know that after talking with his partner, they decided to go with stainless steel and will be changing all the appliances over in time. He wanted to make sure that getting a new stainless steel (inside and out) dishwasher would be okay with me. Ummm....YEAH! How cool is that?!

We asked about putting up a play structure for Princess and about doing a few other things around the house. His response? Just treat this like it's your house and put everything back the way it was when you are done. How cool is that?!

I posted a while ago about wanting to go home and although we aren't buying this house, it's really starting to feel like home.

Great landlord...nice when they want to work with the clint. We are renting our house while we are in Germany. Our tentants are very needy they want to hire someone to change a light bulb. They have two boys 9 and 10, they keep breaking things and we have to pay for it. Its nice when you can meet some where in the middle. Good luck

Shady Lady said...

Yes, the new dishwasher will be awesome!

Frau, sorry to hear you are having problems with your renters. Our landlady was very disappointed when we decided to leave. I posted the details http://behindbigshades.blogspot.com/2009/03/were-moving.html and http://behindbigshades.blogspot.com/2009/04/so-landlady-called.html

I should also mention that the half month rent for the month of April was the landlord's idea. He wanted us in on April 15 and we wanted to come in on May 1. This was his compromise. Yes, he is way cool!

Sounds like this will be a great place for you LK and of course Princess! Great news about the dishwasher. We got a new one about a year ago, we spent a little more than we planned and I'm so glad we did. My dishes come out super clean and no spots!

I'm really happy because it sounds like you are settling in and that all will be well with this new home!
