I'm sure you're lovely people but you have to understand that a landlord needs to protect him/herself from risk as much as possible. My personal advice (and trust me,... show more

Best answer: It's up to the individual landlord. Plus remember, income is only part of the qualification process. Credit, previous rental history and criminal history is considered too.

I’m looking at some old houses and condos in Connecticut. They have clearly been remodeled. Modern kitchens, new carpets or wood floors, etc. Is it safe to assume that in this process asbestos should have been removed.

My landlord is in the process of switching letting agencies and handed me a letter informing me that my rent will increase by £140 a month!!. But I moved into the property I’m in now three months ago and signed a lease agreement for 12 months for a set rent price.

Me and my boyfriend want to rent a one bedroom apartment that cost 1000/month. According to my tax returns, I make about 40k after taxes, and he makes about 50k. Since we are not married, we do not have a joint tax return. And please don't suggest that we get married. Thanks.

They realized new commercial construction was being developed in the fields behind the house.(which has been going on for years now). The closing is in 2 weeks. We have negotiated after inscriptions, etc and agreed to a contract. I’ve been selling furniture and have movers scheduled. Any ideas?
