It’s not easy to find an affordable place that is also located close to places you frequent such as campus or workplace. But at the very least, you want a place that is inhabitable and safe to sleep in. Yet, these people encountered some of the most horrible landlords ever.
In fact, some of these are illegal in some countries and the tenants have every right to sue them. Green Lemon can’t help but warn people to be careful in choosing where you want to live.
