Your Questions About Studio Apt For Rent

July 26, 2012

Donald asks…

Can you recommend some neighborhoods in the Bronx?

I would like to rent a studio or one bed room apt and want a fairly convenient commute to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital at 1650 Grand Concourse. I have a car but also am willing to use a bus or subway. Safety is important so low or lower crime areas would be preferred. Thanks for your suggestions.

Sandy asks…

Whats the best neighborhood to rent in Portland Oregon? What are the price ranges for rentals in these areas?

I am 24 yr old looking for a one bed/2 bedroom apt NOT in an apt complex! Like to be near by fun shops, good restaurants, and (hopefully) a nice yoga studio. Wouldn’t mind be a little further away from those amenities if there was a house with a lot of light, good energy, and a yard:-) Will be living with my boyfriend I’m a massage therapist and he’s a chef. Thanks!!

Administrator answers:

Definitely around NW 23rd. I actually know of a yoga studio right around there, I think it’s called CorePower Yoga.

I’m not sure about the price ranges for rentals.

Donna asks…

Can my landlord ask me to pay rent 5 days early?

I have lived there for 3 years. Its a studio apt above a garage which is part of a house. The landlords live in the house. We do not have a rental agreement or lease term. She asked me last month to pay rent 5 days early because she needed the money and she gave me a 40dollar discount. (oddly, she didn’t cash the check til days after the original due date).
She hasn’t offered me an incentive such as a rent discount.

Please read the question thoroughly.
-Rent is usually due on the 5th.
-This is the second month in a row she has asked for it on the 1st.
-Last month the check wasn’t cleared until the 8th or so.

“We do not have a rental agreement or lease term”

Then legally you have a month to month lease and she (the landlord) can change the due date to the 1st simply by giving you 30 days notice.

For example on or before Sep 1 she could inform you that the rent is now due on the 1st effective Oct 1 and that would be the new due date unless/until you give notice to vacate.

Linda asks…

Is it possible to afford $600 rent and still go to school full time?

I’m 19.
Living at home/commuting isn’t an option. Parents are both alcoholics/dad’s homophobic…and I just hate the boring town I live in.
I want to move into a tiny studio apt. in Chicago. It’s actually $525 but I’m estimating $600 with utilities.
Since public transportation is so good, I won’t be using a car.
Just wondering does this sound crazy? Or would it still be possible to pay for food, laundry, hygenetics, etc., and still have a little spending money leftover? I’m not sure if I should just take a semester off school to work more or just try to rough it out.

Also I tried looking for roommates but no luck…and I don’t want a random roommate from Craigslist, cuz that’s just a little too weird for me.
I’ll have about $5000 in savings by the time I move.
i would have a job whether i’m in school or not…i don’t want to spend the $5000 it’s mostly just to fall back on.
