kids' book in which princess and family move out of castle and have to rent all houses on a street to hold their stuff

I am looking for a chapter book I read as a kid in the 1970s/1980s in which a princess and her family have to move out of their ancestral home and instead rent all the houses on a street to hold all their things that used to be in the castle. It was kind of an adventure/mystery story after that, I think involving something with the family possessions. Anyone know the title of this book please?

Infestation Risk

I'm looking to rent a studio or one bedroom apartment in Arlington, Virginia within walking distance of the Courthouse or Clarendon Metro stations. After a week or so of pretty intense searching (dozens of calls, two days spent wandering around) I finally found and visited a place in my price range (under $1250) a 10 minute walk from Courthouse. Unfortunately online reviews (20 or so) are largely (80%) negative and frequently mention roaches and bedbugs. How do I decide whether I can look past this or not? How do I broach the topic with the management? [more inside]

Why is one area of a pretentious zip code so much cheaper than the others?

Very long post regarding a first-time home buying quandary, and yes, I've read the other recent threads. My immediate questions (meaning I know I'll have more as this process progresses) are quite specific and as a result haven't yet been addressed here. Mainly, if the Birmingham/Bloomfield area of metro Detroit is supposedly synonymous, why are houses in West Bloomfield so much cheaper than those in Birmingham? What am I missing? And in my particular situation (age, childlessness, etc) is there truly an advantage to buying versus renting? [more inside]

pay rent or quit

Los Angeles slumlordfilter: management company cashed our check for the usual rent amount last week (verified w bank), management company left us a "pay rent or quit" notice yesterday claiming we were short on rent and must pay within 3 days, calls to management company have led the voice mail box of the bookkeeper who has yet to pick up the phone or call us back. We're on day 2 and it's a Friday. Given they actually received rent in full, how worried should we be that they'll f us over even though this is entirely their own error? [more inside]

Should I pay a deposit despite a weird clause in the application?

I'm renting an apartment in Denver, CO, and the property manager is asking I pay a deposit in the form of a money order mailed to his address or delivered to the onsite manager to hold the apartment. I've checked the property out with the onsite manager, and it looks great. Worryingly, the application says that if offered the apartment and I refuse to sign the lease, the deposit will be kept. Is this normal, and is there anything else I should be worried about? [more inside]

D.C.-neighborhoodfilter: How's this area and this rent?

(Posting for a friend, on behalf of their friend, all three of us equally un-D.C. savvy:) A friend of mine is thinking about renting in an apartment in Washington DC, near P St NW and 4th St NW. Based on some internet research, it looks like this is the Truxton Circle or Shaw neighborhood, but we're not quite sure about that. She's a single white female in her mid-twenties, and will be a student keeping irregular hours. She has a car, and has lived in major cities before, though always in relatively safe areas. How safe is this neighborhood? What is the crime situation like? Will she be comfortable walking around alone at night? [more inside]

What if my landlord isn't cashing my rent checks?

I rent a house in a fairly nice part of town. My landlord has owned this house for more than thirty years - the mortgage has long since been paid off. He lives in the same town, in a multimillion dollar place, in a gated area. He has a lot of money, and I don't know what my rent goes to, but I am guessing it's a drop in the bucket for him. I assume so, because he hasn't cashed my rent checks in many, many months. Do I remind him to? [more inside]

How to recover money from my landlord after they failed to live up to an oral agreement?

After months of pestering our landlord about cracked walls (from foundation shifts), we reached an oral agreement that as compensation, I would not be required to pay for the last two weeks of rent. After moving out, they sent me an itemized bill for those two weeks of rent, and deducted it from my security deposit (bringing our recovered deposit to essentially nil). What are my options?
