Renting, why are you the worst?

Posted on Tue, Apr 14, 2015 at 4:00 AM

After just leaving my old apartment and going through a huge debacle with the landlord over major repairs that had to be done, I am now on the hunt for a good landlord. But here's the problem: they don't seem to exist. At least, not the ones who are looking to offer affordable, flexible living arrangements, while also maintaining their buildings and not fucking you over as soon as one thing goes wrong (which may not be even close to your fault). People looking to offload their current shitty apartments post ads that only thinly veil the neglect and degradation they are trying to escape. I've known apartment buildings that haven't had windows, doors, mold, etc fixed simply because students live there and are less likely to make a fuss. Even if they do make a fuss, the likelihood of anything happening or being enforced, because of our weak tenancy act, is slim. So if you're an asshole piece of garbage who happens to own or manage an apartment complex: fuck off. Halifax has too many of you. —Rather Be Homeless
