Eviction party!

Guess who is getting unceremoniously evicted? Slumlords are renovating my building and want us out by January. And a merry fucking christmas to you people, too.

My neighbor was kind enough to tell me now, as official notices don’t go out till October.

I don’t mind change — but does it always have to be so MONUMENTAL and FREQUENT? And, for that matter, EXPENSIVE?!?!

    That sucks! I’m glad your neighbor was nice enough to share the info with you, October really doesn’t leave much time for people to find a new place.

    That is exactly what would’ve happened to me and Bayou had we stuck around Partytown-on-the-water. 🙁

    I’m sorry, hon. At least you got a little head’s up. *hugs*

    They did that at my place to half the complex shortly after I moved in.

    I don’t know if it’s a legal requirement or not, but they provided some kind of service so that people could find comparable housing in the same price range. You might see if they have any plans to offer that.

    They are refusing to provide assistance to anyone — they even hassled my neighbors who did move because they wanted to have another half-month. Believe me, nobody has even started renovating their place yet! The apt management is burning bridges left and right — you’d think they’d want to keep good tenants around, but they’ve told everyone (who has been officiallly notified) to not let the door hit them.

    Aw, hell naw! That’s bullshit!

    What happens if you blog about them and tell people to avoid them?

  6. Pratt :

    That is indeed a big ball of suck.

    But on the lighter side, you might be able to move much closer to work, although you’ll no longer *snif* be my neighbor.

    On the darker side… fuckin’ Maryland.
