I’m looking for a new apartment for a few months already because my landlord wants me out. So far, mostly everyone that I asked is only looking for a newlywed, because they are scared that and anxious, as they want the people to stay for a long time – and they won’t buy a house soon after moving in (to make sure that they have the money for their mortgage).
I am not able to find an apartment, because of this mishegas. They say with a newlywed there will be less wear and tear. But a chosson and kallah that are staying for a long time will also eventually have kids, and there will be wear and tear… so I’m not sure what the whole thing is…
Additionally, people are not communicating properly, and we’ve been to a few apartments, only to find out afterwards that they only wanted a newlywed.. it’s extremely discouraging, disappointing and doesn’t feel mentchlich.
And then there’s this person asking questions that are not okay to ask, only because they are so anxious about making sure that they get their money.
I’m at my wits end.
What landlords should realize is that you can’t control everything, and you only set yourself up for disaster when you try looking for the perfect tenant. Realize it’s ultimately up to Hashem.
