Avoid Gossip

Gossiping is also a common habit around the world, especially in neighborhood communities.

If you are out of town, a good neighbour will keep you informed just in case if there is a big problem in your apartment, whether it’s about plumbing or electricity, while most landlords make the mistake of not participating in all tenants association meetings to discuss the problems they face and ways to solve them.

Organized Neighbors

Being polite and friendly does not mean allowing anyone to abuse this when dealing with you in any way, you should talk to these people directly to avoid any kind of mistreatment.
