House Apartment

What most people don’t know about renting a house is you’ve got access to every room on the property unless it’s explicitly stated you do not. If the landlord has a lock on a portion on a room, and that’s no where mentioned in the lease it’s technically illegal. You can actually come after them for that because they’re selling you a service they refuse to provide. It’s literally fraud.

1Advantages – It’s like own a house, except you don’t have to worry about paying the maintenance bills. Since you’ve usually got no wall-sharing neighbors you can be as loud as you please. With in reason obviously. Plus, if there’s lawn that needs moving or pavement that warrants shoveling you can always offer to do those jobs to take money off each month. The cost of hiring a lawn care company is insane.

2Problems – House sounds great, right? Except you’ve got to shell out a hell of a lot to rent an entire house. They’re usually in the ballpark of a nice high-rise place with great views of the area. Not to mention because it’s a house there are going to be problems, and landlords tend to respond to issues at the speed of smell. So you’re going to be stuck dealing with issues like leaky roofs, drafty windows, and unreliable plumbing as long as you live there.

Did you know they’re also called: bachelor apartments, efficiencies, officetels, and studio flats?…
