Let me break character here for a second and bitch about my life like it was Facebook and you cared. If we’ve seemed a little sporadic and uneven in the last few weeks, that’d be due to the moving of TITLE HQ and all the hassles that presents. Landlords are funny people, eh? Just as a public service announcement, I now offer the following pieces of advice:
- Get it on paper, get everything on paper. Don’t agree to anything that can’t be put into writing.
- Document pre-existing damages.
- Check up on your landlord. Google is your weapon. A good site to look for anything creepy-crawly in the past (and landlord reaction) is Bedbug Registry. Spread the word on that one far and wide.
