I am moving. I have been dying to get out of this place and I have been really excited about moving to my new place. So Friday is to be The Day. I ordered a new gun safe for delivery, I scheduled movers to come get my shit, I packed all of my shit, I scheduled my services to be transferred and everything. Then I get a call this morning.



The guy living in my apartment broke his foot moving and still has all his shit in his apartment. He is going to try and be out by the end of the day, but now I can't get my keys on Friday like I was supposed to. I have to wait a day...meaning that I have to reschedule my movers and my safe delivery, and my friends coming by to help out because the movers are only taking the big shit.



I'm pretty pissed, and I don't feel like a dick for being pissed off. You break your foot then you better be on the horn to your brother, or your buddy, or picking up a couple Mexicans at the Home Depot...but get your shit done.

Yes, but you gotta remember - if you're renting, you're at the mercy of the landlord.

Who is paying for this portion of the month?  Is your rent being prorated?

Why can't he pile all of his shit in one spot (living room, maybe), and you pile all of your shit in a different spot (one of the bedrooms?).  Take turns bringing stuff in/taking stuff out.

The only moves I've had that didn't have last minute snags, are houses that were unoccupied when we bought them.

I'd probably offer to go help the guy get his stuff out.

But that's just me.

Yes, I'd be pissed off. Fuck that guy. Call him up and tell him you'll give him a hand at moving. Go over there and just toss all of shit out the front door and then move your stuff in.


But yeah, I'm always be pissed too so...

What does the lease say regarding move in take possession of? IMO The landlord / lease company OWES you for the cost of move, time lost in new place etc. Not to mention i'd be unloading non essential items over there NOW. Tell them So Sad, Too Fuckin Bad.

Just so I understand, you're moving into an apartment on the same day someone else is moving out of it?  

That's as fucked up as a football bat. Any apartment I've ever lived in I had THOROUGHLY cleaned before my stuff got anywhere near it.

This.  You know that broke-foot boy isn't going to clean the place before he's out, and the LL needs time to fix stuff in between tenants.  Also, if I were broke-foot boy I'd be concerned about no final walk-through (ok hobble through?) before you move in, or you could cause damage and attribute it to the prior tenant.

ETA: since your new landlord/management company is showing themselves to be thoroughly incompetent even before your tenancy starts, do a walk-through of your own, with video and pictures, showing the condition of the property before you move anything into it.

QFT.  The place needs a deep cleaning and the carpets steam cleaned.  NO Way I'd move into a rented appartment the same day the previous drug/bug/virus infested POS moved out.

He's talking about the guy in his new apartment. He's waiting for that guy to move out so he can move in.




Maybe read it a little slower......

I guess they need to push me back a day because the maintenance can't inspect today, so the carpet gets pushed a day and the painters get pushed a day, etc.
