must-see on msn
I shouldn't have signed it, but I was pretty desperate at the time and the landlord ensured me that it was only there for "extreme cases" and hardly ever enforced.
Luckily nothing ever came of it (even though I had quite a few people spend the night), but I would never sign something like that again.
Well, at least it's eleven and not ten.....as in the ten worst states for women........
Thank U MSN-
For informing me on how to heep the worthless, sue hungry, tenants, who prey on people who are trying to earn a living with their property.
IF YOU DONT LIKE IT DONT SIGN THE LEASE . READ THE LEASE ! min you sign the lease it means you understand the mutual again it is a MUTUAL Agreement betwen two parties. you know who the worst tenant is ?
WHO half haked screams at 10PM totally intoxicated on weekends out of control slams doors nosiy inconsiderate.
Who TOTALLY disregard the conditiion clearly listed on lease contract
WHO signs one person then moves in with ENTIRE FAMILY esp when its utility included .(esp some ethenic group its more prevalent in my experince no discrimination intended) YOU NEED TO MENTION THAT BEFORE YOU MOVE IN EXTRA PEOPLE INTO BUILDINGS ESP if its PRIVATE RESIDENCE!
WHO Nails the wall in the middle of the night (after 10PM)
WHO trashes apt so when viewing is scheduled (deleberate attempt) esp after exp lease or lease was not extended as they fit due to illegal drug use. what a headache.
WHO Leaves windows open when central AC is on and outside its 100 F.
WHO Think all utility included is all you can eat and take home pocket full of food.(pathetic) how pathetic is that? bring the laundry for entire family of 5 and jack up the water and sewage bills.(they do this in discret until they get caught!)
WHO Signs lease and comes back in two days want to cancel or else they will sue if Security is not returned. saying all his family is lawyer :)) really??
WHO says all his or her family is lawyer. (Legal coercision or extorsion) I say so as mine they are harvard graduate and district attorney and civil lawyer.
WHO appers snow white but smokes POT or use illegal drugs when notice given tells me I am invading his privacy.
Be a considerate tenant , BEFORE passing judgement on landlord or owners.
Moved out of an apartment a few years back. Scheduled and had the landlord perform a final walk thru with me and my wife. They noted everything as like new or slightly worn. Waited for my deposit, never showed. After 30 days I asked them where the deposit was. I was told I owed them more money for new carpets.
I explained the inspection sheet showed no abnormal wear. They stated the carpets could not be cleaned, and had to be replaced. To prove it they showed me and altered inspection sheet. Then they turned me over to collections for the difference.
I took them to small claims court, and recovered double my deposit, plus court costs back. They swore they were right, even after 2 court hearings where the judge told them to make their best deal, as I was going to win in court. Then I threatened to sue the collection agency if they continued to pursue me, or affect my credit rating in any way. They backed off.
You can't fix stupid
