I don't know why Richard has this obsession about renters/co-op/condo insurance. Even if you have insurance and collect fully on your claim, there is still the matter of the deductible, which would be at least $250.

With 800 apartments in the complex, the replacement of balcony doors will take quite a while. There is no reason that a schedule can't be distributed, so that you can make arrangements to (1) minimize the inconvenience of having things off the balcony and away from the balcony door and (2) be present when the installation is done.

Expecting you and other residents to be inconvenienced for several months is unreasonable. Your lease probably provides access like this on reasonable notice. A schedule would minimize these problems.

: : I'm hoping you can help. The landlord of an 800-unit apartment complex issued a letter Saturday stating that they would be replacing patio doors over the next several weeks. They requested that we:
: : A) Clear the patio of all plants, barbeques and other items (no word on where we should store the items)
: : B) Clear a four-foot area of all furniture and plants INSIDE the house next to the patio door ( word on where to put the 400-pound dining room table or costly computer equipment)
: : C) Remove blinds or window treatments ("if you require staff assistance, please call to arrange an appointment.")
: : The letter stated that "construction staff will be on the patio/balcony areas throughout the week prior to and after installation...We ask that all residents take precautions and utilize commonsense (sic) regarding valuables in your home. We will have a Lake Grove employees (sic) open/close all apartments...We have worked with Window Specialist previously and trust the company but we ask for your cooperation to secure your personal items."
