How to Live Rent-Free..



in a tough economy is a great topic to discuss now and here I think. I think I have become the Master of living rent free. Infact it has been some time now since I paid the rent on a regular basis. No, I am not a dead beat tenant or creepy person who enjoys taking advantage of landlords. I infact am a very nice,moral individual but..I have had the misfortune of settling in Cairo,NY, the home town of the Slumlord. Yes, since I moved here over 2 years ago I have lived in 3 places with slumlords! Amazing? You bet but..

I have now decided to make this sad fact work for my advantage. I gave no rent this month as you may have previously read due to landlord not making necessary repairs and the fact that I deducted for this from the rent to the point that he deserved nothing. My last place I was evicted from, after not paying the rent there for three months, had no insulation and he rented it out year round. The previous place was infested with roaches and drug dealers as they never cleaned and then we had a fire there as place was poorly wired. Ugh..I withheld the rent til he got an exterminator in there which of course he didn't. He didn't even put us up after the fire. We had to stay in the place with no electricity in the dog days of August! No we are not crazy. We are just poor and had no choice as do many indigent people so we have few choices when it comes to affordable, decent housing. Town officials and the housing dept. don't seem to care about this issue as it cdoesn't effect them as they have a place to live so who cares? It seems to be a poor man's issue alone here in upstate NY apparently. Read More
