So my apartment's getting inspected
    #3685984 - 01/26/05 11:53 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Yup. I come home from class today, and there's this note saying how in a week someone will come along and "inspect" all the apartments. They gave the date and times (between 9 and 5), and a list of everything they're inspecting. It's shit like paint, carpets, shower, cabinets, etc. What a nuisance! I don't even have to say what a problem this presents, with all my various rubbermaid tubs sitting around. Whatever.

Does this happen at anyone elses apartment complex? I never even heard of shit like this.

Here's the list:  "carpet, paint, appliances, kitchen and bathroom floors, bathroom tub tile, medicine cabinet, vanity, kitchen cabinets, countertops, and housekeeping."

And you know that's gonna include the closet. :shiftyeyes:

Isn't this some bullshit here?

that happened to me with my landlord and the plumber.  they said they'd be there at a certain time, and so i got there like an hour early and they were just walking out!

i was trying to act like i wasnt hiding anything when my landlord asked if it was okay if he came in when i wasnt there, and like an idiot i said "sure."

well, he did!  rubbermaids, flowhood, and dirty jars in the kitchen!!! :lol:

he's kind of a nerdy guy, so i doubt he even knew anything.  he never said anything so i guess its all good!

if you just hide all the evidence, even in rubbermaids, dont worry about it.  and just be there when its going on and DONT give them permission to go in if you're not there!

They do this every once in awhile to check conditions of the buildings, etc. and general safety of the wiring, and other misc. junk. I think it may be law for some apartment complexes to do this annually to keep current with building codes-but they generally are supposed to do these things when the apartment is vacant.

Any friends you trust to drop your stuff off at during the inspection?

On the memo, it says that we're not required to be there; I get the impression that even if I'm not there, they'll let themselves in.

Just hide your shit under some clothes, or something. They are just doing routine inspections to make sure all their stuff is up to par. The fire marshall is probably inspecting, or something. Don't worry too much about it, man.

Yeah, I suppose I could hide anything incriminating at a friends place, but it's just such a hassle. And I know they know that everything's fine with the apartment because I just moved in 5 months ago. They could have inspected it then. Maybe it's a bi-annual deal in IL.

They will. It is totally legal, but they aren't supposed to touch any of your personal shit. Just don't leave anything incriminating out. :smirk:

Thanks for the tips, everyone. I'm not too worried, but just don't like the idea of being "inspected".

yeah, it definitely gets the nerves on end for a few days in the process!

just clean up enough to not be suspicious and you should be fine.

At the apartment I lived at 4 years ago,I found out the landlord was going through my stuff.I came home from work one day and I had porn on my computer.He didn't close out the porn sight he was looking at and I had beer missing in the fridge.
I was pretty fucking pissed.I confronted him 2 days later and told him I'm moving out,he informed me that my lease wasn't up yet.
Then I informed him, that him jacking off in my apartment and drinking my beer while I'm at work isn't in the lease either.
Needless to say I didn't have to pay a damn thing.
So the moral of this story is don't trust your landlord.

That's pretty weird. Why would he go and look at porn on someone else's computer? If he's a landlord you'd think he'd at least have his own porn and beer.

It sure was,I wish I had a hidden camera to catch the bastard.Stuff was always out of place when I came home.I thought it was me being forgetful, then beer started disappearing,toilet seat was left up and other little odd occurrences.
But the porn on the computer and missing 4 beers out of a 6 pack really gave it away.
I felt disgusted.
