ZAZ: This is for rental of a room, not a fully equipped apartment. These are roommate rules as much as tenant rules.
walrusonion: not sound like a racist but, I guarantee you this landlord is Pakistani.
Fano: "Pots are to be kept inside the oven when not in use." Guess the nationality.
IamPatSajak: Sounds like my LL and I am renting a whole house, not just a room. He has invented all of these arbitrary rules and emails me all the time about them. We are apparently not allowed to appear that we live here from the outside, nothing on porches, no kid's toys or bikes or skateboards or ANYTHING outside. No trash or recycling bins near the house, he claims it is an "easement issue" whatever the fark that means, they are off the side of the porch. He has come in and done "inspections" multiple times, going through my closets, he sent me an email upset with me because I had laundry on the couch I was in the process of folding.I am in a living hell. Lease is up soon, thank god.
ReapTheChaos: Judging from the majority of the comments I don't think most people even read the article, typical Fark behavior. If they had they would have realized that this isn't about renting a house, apartment or flat, it's renting a bedroom in someone else's house.
rogue_L_chick: Every roommate I've ever had, if the booze wasn't kept in your room, it'd be gone. I became very adept at finding places to hide liquor from the last set (never again).Started out in the closet, tucked into pants and coats, then in the air vents, then bagged up, under the potted plant...even came home from the county fair once with a huge blue snake I won at a game. That sucker gave his many a Sailor Jerry bottle until it was discovered.S'okay though...I up resorting to pinching their weed to compensate.
montreal_medic: Quantum Apostrophe: Hey at least you get to see it first. Here in Quebec if you buy a condo and you don't know that there's a "déclaration de co-propriété" (that's the act of incorporation for the condo), too bad. When you buy, it's implied that you saw it, even if you never saw it or signed it. Usually these acts are FILLED with petty rules like these, written in the vaguest and densest legalese possible. At least if you are a renter you can leave, which is orders of magnitude faster and easier than selling./Just another reason real estate makes no sense at allTell me about it. We just found out that the owners of a few condos in our building got together with a couple of other condo owners and changed the whole condo agreement without formally calling a meeting. They had a unaminous vote of those present, since quarum is around 20%. Now we are all screwed.The rules arent too bad for a renter, but we own. Screw this.They also voted to change quarum so we need damn near everyone to reverse it, including them
Bonzo_1116: ZAZ: This is for rental of a room, not a fully equipped apartment. These are roommate rules as much as tenant rules.Yeah, but even as roommate rules this is control-freak territory. The rent better be suuuuper cheap for that asshole to find anybody.
