Actually there are lots of reasons why it sucks, I think the biggest has to be the fact you get nothing for all that money you spend in terms of your future - what's spent for rent today is spent for rent today, and that's it. It also blows dealing the fact that it's basically like living in the parent's basement but also paying the mortgage for them at the same time - pretty much a lose-lose situation for you but nice for the beneficiary of it.
Personally I also dislike the fact that even though a no smoking clause is in the lease that everyone still living here has signed, I can't open my windows many nights that are nice (like tonight) because of all the smoke that is coming in through them - I tried that tonight, got one whiff (it was like an 80s bar) and just closed them back up. I mentioned this to the owners, but of course enforcing it isn't something they care to actually do so basically the response was "we'll look into it" which means we will do nothing at all, translated into "real world speech".
I think the last thing that sucks about it is, as soon as they know you're leaving, the showing the place harassment starts. In my case I was dumb enough to give them as much notice as possible, which now I would never do, so even though I'm liable for 2 1/2 months more here of rent, they no doubt are eagerly waiting for me to leave (or possibly hoping to drive me out with constant showings of the place) so they can double dip. Not on my watch. Once the closing goes through I can move there, and then they can show it 24/7 for all I really care, but by God if I catch them double dipping, I will do whatever I can to make it cost them.
First showing is tomorrow afternoon even though I have boxes piled up in the living room for whenever I move (that should be at my leisure since I have to pay them for 2 1/2 more months) and you know what, too bad they will just have to walk around the mess just like I do. If they were reasonable, I'd work with them to minimize it and maybe work a deal to leave early but they will only screw me so I want every day of rent I pay for, though their harassment will no doubt drive me to actually move sooner than I intended to. Their harassment is totally legal as long as they give proper notice though.
So I'm sure their tactic will cause me to move sooner, but I'm still not turning it over to them until 10/31 which is what I have to pay for as they reminded me. I reminded them that I do indeed have to pay for through 10/31, and that as a result, it's mine until 10/31 is up, in case they forgot. I figured that was a courtesy just like them reminding me of the rent I owe them
Yeah I hate these f***ers, I at least admit it! Oh well soon enough I'll never see them again and that will be a happy day for all concerned.
