Comment of the Day

"Only look at vacant apartments. (That way, there won't be any lingering tenant issues.) Only rent an apartment if it is already in acceptable move-in condition. Never accept any landlord promises regarding painting, plastering, new appliances, fixtures or the like, not even if those promises are added onto the lease -- because the landlord will never include any penalties in the event of his own non-performance regarding those promises, nor any opt-out provision for you. (While many landlords will keep their promises, or intend to, it is nevertheless the case that stuff -- and dishonest landlords -- also happen.)"?anon [How to Not Get Screwed Over by a Rental Broker]
