WARNING: Renting Apartments


Recommended Posts

My friend was just bamboozled.. I don't know what he was thinking. He broke the cardinal rule.

NEVER, ever, under any circumstances give the money to the real estate agent or middleman. Those companies/people have a habit of disappearing without giving your landlord the rent. Leaving you broke and homeless. Always have the landlord present in any transaction and make sure he's signing as a witness, giving receipts and stuff. If you give your money to the middleman you have basically no recourse when/if they run away. I've known numerous people to get ripped off by this scam.. my friend paid a year's worth of rent.. close to 19000! gone. Don't do it! you've been fore-warned!
