    Rent coming into your account may be late due to the banking system and not necessarily the tenant paying late.

    AOV = automatic opening vent for the curious.

    I think this is the tenant's way of finding out if there locks were changed. Do it or you will get no end of false alarms and grief. Keep the old lock and swap it when this tenant moves out.

    2 coats of Thompson's Waterstop seems to have solved this on my London Stock 1906 porous bricks in an open SW facing situation.

    Withholding rent over that is pretty ridiculous too. Don't rent via HAs is my tip.
