It took us 2 days but we did our paper work and turned it in on a regular week. Not all complexes are bad. Ours is actually the cheapest rent you can find around here. People are shocked when I tell them we pay $725/3br. However we payed $1400 in a security deposit and we have very strict rules. Where you can park your car, when they dumpsters are unlocked and locked, what signs and decorations you can have on your door or hallway, keeping the hallway/stairwells clean and empty etc etc. the place is super clean, quiet and well maintained. The same can't be said at all for some of the other near by complexes.

It took 3 weeks to get approved for mine! It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, with a balcony. Newly built (Not even a year ago). Gorgeous place. Rent is $495 a month, I pay electric. The only rules we really have is we are only allowed "seasonal" decorations on the patio/balcony and they must be removed in a timely manner. I think it took so long because it is "affordable housing" and they had to have it approved 3 different times, and we had issues when they checked my income because my BD was paying arrears for child support and it made my income look wonky.

^^Damn! Our place is $880 and we pay electric, we're looking at $1200 for a 2 bedroom so we can't move any time soon.

Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" Yeah, it took 2 months total from the beginning of our bathtub issue, the tub had cracked down the middle, ... [snip!] ... is using OUR electricity in the basement below us to run their tools and shit. I'm so ready to be out of this shithole. "


Oh dude, I hope we can all move soon. Our windows never had screens to begin with, they haven't powerwashed the windows this year at all and there are bird nests all over the building now so the windows are disgusting. Most of the tenants that were here when we first moved in have left and it's all young single people now so it's pretty much non-stop noise.



Hopefully I can find a place for a decent price and convince SO we need to move.
