Rental Property Plumbing Problems Can Cause Damage If Left Unchecked or Serviced
The leasing offie is excited to announce that they have finally received the certificate of occupancy and are ready to start moving in residents this Thursday through Saturday. The nearby plumbers have helped finish the remaining work and the building is ready. After a nearly six week delay in opening, they cannot wait to welcome the new residents to their new home.
Most homes will actually be available between 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday evening. If Thursday evening is the preferred move in time, however, renters are asked to please call the leasing office to ensure that their apartment home is ready for move in.
All other apartment homes should be available Friday morning. The leasing office will open the doors to its temporary leasing location on the first floor next to the gym at 9 a.m., and will be available to allow move-ins until 8:00 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. If residents are currently being housed in a hotel, final check out will have to occur no later than 11:00 a.m. on Friday.
All residents are asked to ensure they they have all balances paid and renter’s insurance in place before the move in. The status of an account can be checked and balances can be paid on the resident portal. The leasing office reminds all residents that they will be unable to release keys to any home until they see proof of insurance and that the balances are paid in full.
The building process does not always go as planned. Sometimes the hired local plumbing services are unable to meet their deadlines and a company might need to contract with other nearby plumbers to make sure a job is completed. And while no one wants to switch contractors midstream, it is sometimes needed. Time is money, and if you are unable to move in your paying renters without the help of a new set of nearby plumbers, you only have one choice.
Poor Contract Work Can Cause Major Problems and Costs for Leasing Companies
Sometimes delays are caused by weather, sometimes delays are caused by contractors who do not follow through on the promises they have made. Either way, when a target move in date for an apartment complex, especially one that will primarily be housing students, is delayed, renters are going to expect some compensations, or they will likely go find somewhere else to live.
Although the leasing agency is happy that they have finally worked with the nearby plumbers and other contractors to announce an official move in day, after several delays, they were also specific in informing residents that are happy that they are still completing construction on a few things and some of the amenities throughout the community. It is important, therefore that residents understand that there will contractors on site and that some areas of the building will remain off limits.
The work of contractors, of course, is not over after the move in occurs. It is also important, especially is a multi unit apartment, to monitor for any leaks, no matter how small. Did you know, for instance, that as many as 10% of U.S. households have leaks in their plumbing that can waste up to 90 gallons of water a day? This means that even after a new building opens, it would be good idea to schedule nearby plumbers, electricians, and other contractors to come back through and check for any problems that might be developing.
Basically, the plumbing system in a home, or an apartment is composed of two separate subsystems. One subsystem brings freshwater in, and the other takes wastewater out. Making sure that these tow separate systems are accurately working, of course, is the ultimate goal of all plumbing. And while indoor plumbing dates back to at least 2500 B.C., it is important to realize that it plays an integral role in the opening of any new building to this date. Or, to the delay of an opening. Like electricity, plumbing plays a major factor in the safety of all the buildings that we use, for our homes, our work, and our education.
