A: I'm sorry to say that he has no responsibility to have the repairs done at a time when you are home at night or on weekends. Landlords are allowed to enter properties in order to make repairs even if tenants are not home. That right extends to the landlord's agents, such as those he hires to complete the repairs. While it is best for all parties to accommodate each other, you cannot force the landlord to pay for night or weekend labor.
I am truly sorry to give you this bad news, but please understand that it would be unfair to you (and unprofessional of me) to provide you with anything less than an honest response. However, if your concerns were not satisfactorily addressed, then please let me know, and I will be happy to clarify my answer. I do ask that you rate me based upon whether I answered your question, and not based upon whether the answer was good news or bad news. Your positive feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you for using our service! If you would like to direct additional legal questions to me in the future, then please type "To VAMD" in the subject line of your question.
Okay thank you, XXXXX XXXXX just curious as it would save me inconvenience.
next question is, if something were to happen (such as an item stolen from my house) by someone who is hired..who would be responsible for that? Who is responsible for giving the person to come a key ? ( He is out of state and hasn't been here in over a year)
Thank you again, I am new to this site and if I need to ask this in the question area again, instead of here, please let me know.
