How To Deal With Landlords In Lagos Nigeria
Landlords or property owners in Lagos Nigeria want two things from tenants:
1. They want tenants who take proper care of their house and
2. A tenant who pays his rent promptly
If you are not this kind of tenant, you will have problems with your landlord.
Another thing to remember is that the landlord is the boss. He is the owner of the property and so he makes the rules.
Therefore, if you wish to occupy a property and stay long and happily in it, then respect the landlord.
You don't need to serve him. You simply need to acknowledge that he is in charge and respect his possible as the owner.
If you break any of the two rules above or are arrogant and disrespectful to your landlord, you're sure going to have problems with him.
Think about it.
If you are a landlord, how would you want your tenants to treat you? With respect or despicably?
Sure, some landlords are over-demanding and irritable. But, hey, if you want peace for the duration you wish to live in the apartment, then you need to find a creative way to manage the landlord so that you do not have incessant conflict with him.
Some landlords are just terrible. But watch your words and your actions. They could make an already bad situation worse.
