house a vs house b, cage match!

A tale of two houses: House owned by agency A - our first choice in a rental. House owned by agency B - our second, but still cool choice. We've been offered House B (small applause). House A, however, is being held up in the approval process, because my boyfriend's old landlord wont verify that he rented from them. Guess who the landlord is? [more inside]

No credit check rentals -- what's the deal?

I'm househunting (for rent) and sometimes I'll see on Craigslist a place that says "no credit check / no security deposit", even for fairly nice looking houses. This seems like it would attract all the deadbeat renters who can't get approved elsewhere. Why would a landlord/mgmt company risk losses on the house this way? Should I be extra alert when dealing with such a listing?

looking for one bedroom apartments in Petworth (DC)

I'm planning to move to out of my current studio apartment in DC to a larger one bedroom in the Petworth neighborhood (though the northern end of Columbia Heights/southern 14th St Heights would be possible as well) in DC.

Appartment management companies have rediculously high credit requirements in Los Angeles. Is it legal for my mother to rent an appartment and for me and my roommate to just live there and pay rent? My mother would not be living there and the managment company probably wouldnt know. If this is not legal, what is the legal action that the management copany can take? This managment company does not accept co-signors. Please help!

Hapless painter wants to take a stab at video art. Cheaply.

Video camera rental advice: I'm looking to make an exceedingly simple, short video (an art project, if you will) and I'm looking to rent a fairly high quality camera to do it with. The condition is that I need a camera that can function reasonably (I'm not expecting miracles, here, but I don't want horribly washed-out, grainy business) in a very low-light situation. I'm applying for a small grant to do this, and I can't afford more than maybe $200 for a day's rental, $250 tops. [more inside]

Water leak at 4am, do I call my landlord now?

It's 4 am and I just woke up to a bathroom full of water. I'm renting in the Sierra's and it's been really cold, so one of the pipes burst and started leaking (the heat was on and I was home all day, though..). I called the emergency plumbers and they came to turn off the water. Now the situation is under control. How do I break this to my landlord? Should I call her now or can it wait till morning?

Landlords suck.

A potential new landlord told me that while my credit report came back a-ok, an issue came up on my "tenant report." I know this to be in error (the alleged "issue" occured before I even moved in to my current place). So do I have a right to view the report on me, like I do for credit? Whom do I contact in order to fix this item? They were very sketchy with the details, and this whole thing has left me even more jaded about renting. What rights do I have in regards to these "issues" and "reports"? Who does them? Are they legit? Do I have any recourse whatsoever? [more inside]

Ontario Tenant Filter:

Ontario tenant filter: We are renting without a lease on a month-to-month basis: one of our roomies is really losing the plot and is about to be delinquent on paying rent for the 2nd month in a row. Are we going to go down with him? (the LL left a message last time saying 'Id like to remind you guys that the apartment is being rented for $900, not the $300 you individually pay'. But my dad seems to think that we are under "rooming house" rules where the LL is accepting rent from us individually and as long as I pay my $300 I dont have to worry. The only thing is that I cant find any info on what happens when you dont have a lease on the ORHT website.
