Cory | Thursday, January 8th, 2009 7:55 am

My rent is due on the 1st of each month and because January 1st was a holiday I took my payment in on the 2nd.  My landlord sent me a late payment penalty for not paying on the 1st.  My understanding is that Indiana law requires businesses to accept payment the next business day should […]

Toxic Mold

FurtherFedUp | Sunday, December 28th, 2008 11:18 am

We have rented a home for two years.  Over the course of the two years, lots of maintenance issues have cropped up that were covered up, either cosmetically or with a band-aid solution.  Most of these issues arise from a greater moisture problem in several areas of the house. Long story short, a skylight that […]

Stupid Landlord

frustrated in Salt Lake City | Sunday, November 23rd, 2008 6:54 pm

I moved into a new apartment in the beginning of September of this year (2008).  At about this same time, new management took over our apartment complex.  They are a complete joke.  They manage (or at least say they are managing–but I beg to differ) our complex, along with a low-income complex a couple of […]

Chris Schell | Thursday, November 6th, 2008 10:09 am

We moved into a beautiful house with a Beautiful Yard in August. On August 14th my property manager told me that they would be putting in a new septic tank, and had been planning to since February (this info was withheld from me when I signed the lease) The work started September first and was completed […]

Electricity shut off – Do I compensate?

admin | Wednesday, November 5th, 2008 8:17 am

I am a home owner with a roommate…  I inadvertently forgot to pay my electricity bill and it was shut off.  The power was out over night and for 18 hours.  This caused my roommate the inconvenience of having to get ready for work elsewhere.  She hasn’t asked but I would like to offer a […]
