MimLogue-"I will eat 4 month water bill . Tell me sir How do landlords insulate against that?? Are u and Mike woman haters or just degrade everyone with ideas??"

Here we go... I'm a poor woman and those men are picking on me.

And I've given you the answer on how to insulate yourself on being stuck with a 4 month water bill. Here it is again: RAISE YOUR RENT AND INCLUDE THE WATER. Add a provision to the contract that if water usage is above certain level, a surcharge will be added to cover the additional use. See that, problem solved.

When I rent a property I use a rental application where the applicant lists job history, gives me permission to do criminal records and credit checks, names and phone numbers of past landlords. If they are dead beats they never bother to return the application. If after researching the prospective tenant and they seem suitable I require a security deposit that is equal to one months rent, if they don’t check out well but I feel like taking a chance I also require last months rent.Also have the water company send me a duplicate water bill,I got stuck with a $1000.00 water bill about 30 years ago; no trouble since on that issue however the rental business (or any other business) is not for sissies!

Landlords need to do a background checks on their possible tenants with a online company that can tell you if your possible tenant is a deadbeat or criminal. There are companies that do this within minutes and also the tenant should have all utilities in their name when they don't get paid they get SHUT OFF.

Mim you've been a landlord for how long and STILL haven't figured out how to insulate yourself from the costs of your tenants who don't pay their utilities. It's one of the costs of doing business as a landlord. Figure it out.

And for the record I didn't ask you if cared about my opinion. You are the one continually crying and wanting pity because of getting stuck with water and sewer bills.

what would a stockbroker do for the city ?? Oh yeah,George Bierman (STOCKBROKER) could help them invest the millions a month they recieve from the landlords for the freeloaders that idiot boys club have protected for years. APPOINTING A WOMAN LIKE MYSELF WHO JUST COULDNT KEEP UP WITH THAT BOYS CLUB WOULD NEVER WORK. THE PUBLIC MIGHT REALIZE AND BECOME INFORMED WHAT IS GOING ON WITH ALL THOSE MILLIONS, WE CANT HAVE THAT

And Cappelli is back at the water company, right where his career started. Is he rebooting his career and we'll see him run for mayor again?

Mim still hasn't figured out that she needs to raise the rent and include water and sewer with the rent.
