Am I supposed to only get 2 weekends to find a new apartment?

I live in a big apartment complex and the landlord sends me a letter 1.5 months before my lease is up with the rent increase. So I will be notified of the new rent on January 16 and no earlier. However, I have to give 30 days notice, and so only have about 2 weeks where I know my new rent and can find a new place. How do other renters deal with such a small window of time? [more inside]

Baby, It's Cold Outside!

A window in our apartment was broken by the previous tenants. When my roommates and I moved in this summer, our landlord told us that he'd get it fixed within 6-8 weeks. Winter's here, it still hasn't been fixed and it's causing our utilities to skyrocket. I know YANAL, but we need a bit of legal advice... [more inside]

Where can I find landlord/tenant laws online that will help me with this...

The building we're living in has been sold to a management company who just put out notices while we were on vacation. The notice is dated 12/4 and it states that rent payment must be in the form of cash, money order, or bank check. Their office hours are during the same hours we are at work mon-fri, 9-5. Payment can be dropped in their box or mailed to their office. They state payments received after the 5th of the month (due the 1st) will incur a 20% penalty. I'm wondering what the tenants rights are. Can they really NOT accept personal checks?!! [more inside]

Help me rent a villa

Inspired in part by this thread I want to rent a villa in Tuscany. I am reluctant - perhaps needlessly - to do this all over the InterWebs. Does anyone have any experience with an Italian villa renting agent? My ideal answer would be of the form "Contact Signore Agente, he found us a great villa!" But really, any insights from actual experience would be helpful.

Picky Eremite

Financial judgement call: My current lease ends Sept. 30, and a much desired loft (city view! high ceilings and stainless appliances!) is available Aug. 30. Neither current or pending landlord will relent in the proper direction (i.e., +/- 30 days) so that, should I take the new place, I would definitely be paying two rents for one month. Ouch. Frugality battles aesthetics. Am I being foolish? [more inside]
