Curse of the boiler breakdown

It's started.  We have just hit the middle of November and I've already had the first tenant sending me the dreaded email relating to a malfunctioning boiler.  This one related to a boiler that I'm sure I have had replaced in the last few years.  Ok time might be in the last 5 years.  I have documented before about my search for a replacement boiler so I do know it's less than 5 years old. To me that constitutes a pretty new boiler.

Leaking boiler problems

The bloomin boiler is leaking which is exactly why I had to replace the last one a Halsted.

Sometimes it can be no fun and a lonely business being a landlord.  You know what.  At this time of year I tempted to sell all my properties and rent.  Then I can join Generation Rent and just pick up the phone when I have problem with my boiler.  I've toyed before with landlord boiler insurance and have rejected it as an expensive complication to actually getting my boiler fixed.  Instead, I'll call up one of the number of plumbers I know....hope they are not going to rip me off and that they can fit me in.  Who says being a landlord is sexy?
