Landlords – can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em..


Landlords – can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em..

I got this a few ago. It is from a correspondent in Southern California and was on another topic. However hidden within the message were these gems:

As you well know, landlords sometimes don’t see the value of investing in technology, safety or maintenance for their lots and garages.  It drives me nuts. I have used Parking Today make landlords see the light on more than one occasion.  I only wish I can use the magazine to smack them upside the head a time or two. A short list of landlord low points of my long career…

  • A property manager of a 700 car garage told me to unplug beeping CO monitors, rather than have them serviced. 
  • A government agency who owns a 1,000 space open lot that does over $3.5 million a year in revenue won’t let me buy a revenue control system with an historic data base feature (unnecessary and too expensive they said), so we wind up with nothing more than a European made cigar box operation.
  • And the medical office building owner who demanded that we integrate his old and simple office building card access system with the 300 car garage access system, thereby giving everybody who has access to the building, access to the garage, too.  He wanted to save the $15,000 cost of upgrading the garage’s card system.
