Thanks, Lorien! I emailed the other landlord today and asked point blank if he was willing to negotiate and if not, we had another property awaiting our decision. So, since he didn't get back to me, he lost out. I'm kinda tired of dealing with him anyway. I'd love to see him try and get what he's asking for his house, he's nuts!
