Comment on Utility Billing: Virtual sub metering of your building, has the time come? by Benjamin Levy http://scenicwestpm.com/blog/2010/02/utility-billing-virtual-sub-metering-of-your-building-has-the-time-come/comment-page-1/#comment-38 Benjamin Levy Tue, 23 Feb 2010 13:15:25 +0000 http://scenicwestpm.com/blog/?p=82#comment-38 Being in the business of submetering I couldn't agree with this post more. Submetering is good for business, no doubt, but even more than that, it is emminently fair, and green. When you deploy a Automated Meter Reading system, you are able to bill tenants for what they use--and only what they use. With all other forms of allocation the people that use less water end up subsidizing those that use too much. It's also green. In 2004, a consortium of federal, state, and municipal groups comissioned a proper, rigorous, scientific study of the practice of submetering. Their conclusions were unequivocal, submetering lowers consumption, other methods do not. And it lowers it by 15 to 50%! Quite a bit.

Comment on Another Notice for Rent Controlled Properties in Los Angeles by WASET http://scenicwestpm.com/blog/2009/12/another-notice-for-rent-controlled-properties-in-los-angeles/comment-page-1/#comment-36 WASET Tue, 16 Feb 2010 07:40:04 +0000 http://scenicwestpm.com/blog/?p=28#comment-36 This is one of the most ignorant "requirements" our tax dollars have been FORCED to pay for. To be MANDATED to post the notice in a foreign language (Spanish) is treasonous and the LA City Council should be prosecuted.

Comment on A word about coin op laundry machine contracts by Scott Goodman http://scenicwestpm.com/blog/2009/10/scott-goodman-%e2%80%a2-url-httpwww-scenicwestpm-com/comment-page-1/#comment-27 Scott Goodman Sun, 31 Jan 2010 18:49:26 +0000 http://scenicwestpm.com/blog/?p=7#comment-27 You're right, it doesn't seem reasonable that the contract can be rescinded by only one of the parties involved. Our LSC tried to include an automatic renewal clause upon expiration. We eliminated that clause, leaving us free to negotiate new terms at the end of the 5 year lease period. Go over your father-in-law's contract thoroughly, and if that's truly the case, I would suggest you contact a legal professional to further understand your options. Let us know how it goes.

My father-in-law bought a building with one of these things. 5 year term with automatic renewal for two more terms, only cancellable at the request of the Lessee. He's trying to renegotiate, but the service is saying the lease is final. Doesn't seem reasonable for a contract to last for 15 years with no chance to renegotiate or cancel based on poor service or changed conditions. One way contracts seem so 18th Century.
