A question for stubborn landlords

Dear Sir,

Question to landlords: when you have suitable tenants for your available/vacant properties, but they are requesting you to lower the rent by a couple, maybe even a few hundred dollars, yet you claim you cannot but the property then sits for six months with no rental income.

How does that make any sense? Do you get a break from the banks on paying your mortgages on the property that is vacant or do you still have to pay the bank?

I have landowners whom have not fixed anything in my apartment.

I have communicated with them that this needs fixing and that needs fixing ... nothing.

But I have mould and had termites from a previous tenant. So you do see the pattern, but still I get blamed for the condition of the apartment.

The fridge is not working properly, so I buy practically every day. That's very expensive.
