Think Your Landlord Sucks? These Renting Nightmares Are Worse Than Anything You Got

11. You Don’t Have Mail

It is the landlord’s job to make sure all of the technicalities are in place, keys are distributed, certain utilities are set up, provided appliances are in working order, etc. If these things aren’t done, well, there may not be much you can do about it.

“I moved into this townhouse about six weeks ago. The landlord gave us the wrong key to the mailbox (which is one of those cluster boxes for the whole complex). Since the landlord owns the box, the Post Office can’t do anything about it. I told him weeks ago that the key won’t work and he said he’d give us a new one. 6 weeks later when I asked him when I would get the key he said it wasn’t his problem and I still can’t get to my mail.”
