This depends on whether the filters are in or outside the apartment and how much hassle you want and how often you either want to open your unit up or have the landlord in there when you are not. Usually the landlord but not always. This would be a good thing to talk to the landlord or occupant about to set the ground rules on. Thanks BB
I think it depends on what the agreement is with the landlord...and what type of living situation you are in. Typically, in apartment complexes there are maintenance agreements and they will replace them for you on a monthly basis. If, however, you live in a rental property that's not a true 'apartment', clean them yourself. No one will ever come and change the filters and they can get pretty nasty pretty quickly.
