The Difference Between Good Landlords and Bad Ones

We had an awful time with the last apartment we rented. We were sitting around talking about it with our new neighbors at our new apartment where we think everything is perfect. Our last landlord made us all kinds of promises when we signed the lease. The promises were verbal and not in writing, so we could not prove any of them. That is why as soon as we were reaching the end of our lease, we started looking for apartments for rent in Mission Viejo CA to move to to get away from him.

I remember how he had agreed to fix the kitchen floor and to replace the carpeting in the living room before we moved in. It did not happen. He said he would get it done by the time the next month’s rent was due. He didn’t.

I Found a New Apartment

It was a really lucky thing for me that I ran into a friend of mine from college, who was in a similar situation to mine. One night I was out at this bar and some girl told me about a party down on the periphery of a college campus. It was a pretty wild scene and I ran into Jimmy just as he was about to get his butt beat for hitting on the wrong girl. The other guy thought I might step in. At any rate Jimmy had a nice Oceanside California apartments, but his roommate had simply bailed on him. He thinks that he went back to live with his parents, but he had never told Jimmy anything.
