Very Unprofessional Field Agent, I have owned severalrental properties in Durham County over the past 9 years and I've only had to dealwith neighborhood improvement services only three times. My first two dealings with neighborhood improvement services were very straightforward in the field agent was very communicative, very tactful and was focused on resolution vs conflict.unfortunately my most recent dealing with Durham County neighborhood improvement services has been nothing short of a complete headache.repairs were done in a timely fashion, yet the second inspection done by the field agent Michael Vaughn did not note any of the work as completed,also to note the second inspection was scheduled the day before Thanksgiving which was very inconvenient for both my tenants as well as myself.To make matters worst,I received over 9 letters from Durham County neighborhood improvement services stating the exact same thing regarding the second inspection. The gist of which did not reflect any of the work that had been completed, its in my professional opinion that writing anyone 9 certified letters is harassment and a complete waste of city funds.as a property owner I understand the importance of combating slumlords and providing a quality environment for tenants, but criminalizing property owners as slumlords is counterintuitive to increasing quality housing in Durham County.
