The Tenant Smells Gas!
I was showing a rental property here in Sun City Texas over the weekend. The prospective tenants had already decided to take the home, made application, credit & background approved, and we were delivering checks and signing the lease. We decided to meet at the property so they could take some photos and measurements. They also wanted to show off the property to a sister who already lives in Sun City Texas. Things were going well.
We were finishing up and went to the garage where the furnace and hot water heater are located. The sister smelled gas. None of the other three of us smelled anything, but that doesn’t make a difference. If one person smells gas, the gas company must be called to be sure.
Our local gas company is Atmos. They dispatched a technician on Saturday afternoon and he arrived about 5PM. As the broker for this property, I had no choice, but to stick around and wait for the technician to arrive as the tenants left. Good thing I did. The sister apparently has a great nose as there was a small leak at the connection to the hot water heater. The technician made the repair, check the entire house for other potential leaks, replaced the obsolete meter on the outside of the house, and re-lit the hot water heater. The house is now 100% and ready for occupancy.
