Seeing another post on here from another mylot friend it inspired me to post about terrible places I have lived in.My first place was mice infested and very old and would not heat well.It had a fire electrical and we lost just about everything not a good way to get out of a place but we got out of there. Til we found a a place after that our landlord provided for us another place he was having his other people help us out any way they could that place was not any better when we went to move out our friends leg went through the back porch steps. After that we found a nice apartment thanks to our church for helping us out and getting us in it.The best thing about it was meeting some great friends and it was across the street from our church. This apartment was mold invested and the landlord did not believe it so we found a mobile home and bought it and we lived there til we moved out of state due to my husband having a band and getting a recording contract.

Well, over the yrs. I have lived in some interesting places as well as some that were actually quite nice. The problem was one of the nicer ones I moved out of to get married, but my husband was a better deal. But I have lived in some interesting ones. Lived in one that if not for the grace of God I would not be alive today as I lived in one place that was so easy to break into, someone broke in and stole almost everything of value in there, and broke the window etc. Which actually was a God send since my Utility bill was outrageous and even when I complained no one seemed to care that somehow someone had put an extension cord from my place to somewhere else so I was paying for way more power than I was using. The place actually was quite run down but cheap. Nowhere as bad as what you described. But I have lived somewhere where there was always a lot of Cockroaches and someone was constantly having to bomb to keep them out. And lived another place that the place actually looked better inside that what the outside looked like, and people could not believe it til they seen it themselves. Luckily I have no HORROR rental stories like you have told, but mine make me Glad we are now buying our home so it is up to us how we keep things for sure.

Wow sounds like you have been in some nasty ones as well.I am thankful to be in a better place and a place that if anything goes wrong they are right there to fix it.It is always nice to own your own place we owned our own place before we moved to another state now we are back to renting but it is only temporary thank goodness.

It sounds like things have really improved for you guys. I knew of a house that the girl was moving out of and with the last load taken out the porch literally fell off.
