Actually, I just paid for an inspection on a property I own but do not occupy.
Among other items, it calls for replacing not just one furnace, but also the
boiler in the other wing of the house. This is a single family residence of
about 5000 sf. with two wings. One half forced air and the other baseboard hot
The roof is also in bad shape and will cost about $75k - $100k to correct.
Meanwhile, I think you should stop being such a busy-body. Your friend should
sort out his own problems. You have already demonstrated that he doesn't value
your opinion, anyway. Why are you still trying to insert yourself in the
situation? Time to butt-out ...if you are smart.
Since when is asking for what experience others have had in similar
situations being a busy-body? Isn't that what this newsgroup is about?
Apparently it interests you enough to keep posting, even when you
have no direct experience to contibute.
Your friend should

Excuse me? It seems that you asked a question and were only interested in
answers that agreed with what you had already decided. Add to that, that you are
not even a legitimate party to the issue, and we are left with the reality that
you are simply a meddler.
Find a better hobby.
I've been a long time poster here and regulars here can reach there own
conclusions. I can't recall you ever contributing anything here before
you chimed in with total nonsense.
Your very first post in this thread was:
"I think YOU should pay for all this misery. It's clear that you did
not make a strong enough effort to make your friend take your warnings
seriously. You really failed badly, and just look at the result. While
you are at it, I think you should apologize to the landlord for not
notifying him of this clear danger before disaster struck. "
Now, how stupid was that? I replied trying to dismiss it as a
possible joke, by saying your roof and furnace are shot, you should go
replace them. As if anyone seriously expects parties that are not even
qualified experts and are 3 times removed to start giving unsolicited
advice to a landlord that they don't know.
So then you chime back with the state of your roof, so obviously that
went right over your head. And then you tell me I'm a busy-body and
meddler, for asking a perfectly legitimate question, as if someone
appointed you moderator.
So, yeah, fuck off.

An accident? That one chose NOT to repair/replace the heater as
required in order to gain money?
Notice I did not say to _save money_, but to gain money.
Saving money is taking care of business when you need to. Repair or
replace as needed so you DON'T dump 50,000 gallons of water or replace
half the wood in your home.
When one has no intention of being around for when it hits the fan,
they _gain money_ by refusing to address things when they should and
let the dice roll.
So the dice rolled and this time the house won. The contract between
landlord and tenant will show how smart the landlord really is.
Don't be stupid, retard.
Judging by your Jackie Gleason reference,
you must be on the other side of ancient.
My mother could simply kick your walker out from underneath you.
And if you persist, she could unplug your oxygen tank.
But don't worry, your colostomy bag is safe.
You would better serve yourself by addressing your 'stupid' problem.
Now this was fun
