Hello, I really need some help with this....we live in Florida first off...We just moved out of our house that we rented from Satan lol. Let me say this before we moved in our landlord said that the pool was in great condition other than the wiring..so she said she was going to tear it down if we didnt want to fix the wiring. So like idiots we repaired the wiring it costs us an extra $500.00..so we move in and like 2mths later the pump totally stops working..my husband goes over and I guess its the shaft or the rod that turns in the inside is soooo rusted thats its not even funny..it has cracks i n the rust and everything. So we tell her and she kinda blows it off and says nothing else about it. This is what our addendum to the lease states:
"Tenants are repsonsible for all maintenance, upkeep, and upgrades of the pool. Tenant will be responsible for any problems including but not limited to repair of liner, pump, electrical equipment, frame, deck, and all other parts not mentioned above. Owner wil not be held liable or repsonsible for any damages that occur relating to the pool, electrical systems of the pool, or maintenance of pool. Owner will not be responsible for maintenance or upgrades of the pool, pool equipment, or pool deck. Owner will not be responsible for reimbursement of costs incured due to pool maintenance, upgrades, or service. If upon inspection of the premises the pool if found to be in a unusable condition, the owner will require that the pool be removed at the expense of the tenant. By signing this lease agreement the tenant acknowledges full responsibility for the pool. pool deck, and any equipment included. Tenant releases owner from any and all liabilities related to pool, pool deck, and any and all pool equipment.
Ive spoken on the phone to a lawyer and she said in that agreement it doesnt say replace..ir only says REPAIR..She says that just because its in writing doesnt mean anything (agreement) she said that people getting married- if one states if we get divorced, Im dont have to pay child support..seh said that wouldnt hold at all....back to the pool we've checked and no one does any repairs on above ground pool pumps here they say they are too complex.....Now I told this girl (landlord shes 23) that this pump stopped working in September...this pool has been green for awhile!!! shes seen this green many times...shes telling us now that we are gone that the pool needs to be ripped up and its going to cost her over $1000.00 I said no thats not, my husband can get someone for free over here to take that up...well she starts acting funny well we'll talk about it in the walk through of the house"...Its the 4th and she still hasnt called to do our walk through (we moved out on the 29th of July)...My husband called her and she starts yelling dont threaten me, and no one said anything to her that was a threat so we think she had an audience. Almost done ....One other thing is she is on a Car Racing Chat, well my mother in law new her and said no one likes her anyways because shes a b*tch...well thats besides the point right..but we took this chat back to before we moved into the house and she was trying to give this pool away, and she was asking for help with some pool service because she didnt have time to do it (she use to live here in the house before she rented it) and after she moved out it shows that she was complaining about her tenants not taking care of the pool.....Ive copied all of this...We left the house in great condition, the carpets were dont and everything and every other house we've rented we've always got out deposit back..to beat all this young girl is a real estate agent (she just became one) I just want some other opinions please help. thanks so much!!
