For all its talk about not "berating" other users, Tenant Net itself seems to do most of the berating. Tenant Net has also censored several posts over the past few days for mere differences of opinion.
Ideally a forum like this exists so that people can pose questions and receive answers which each reflect a different point of view. There is not any one "correct" answer to most of the questions here. Some posters - such as the one in question here, who compared renting her apartment to buying a car - seem to be quite confused with the very basics of the landlord/tenant relationship. Tenant Net does its readers no favors by allowing only "politically correct" posts and ruthlessly deleting those it doesn't agree with, much like a landlord rejecting potential renters.
: Instead of helping the tenant understand about Major Capital Improvements, how to respond, how to object, what qualifies, what the rules are, where to look, etc. you've berated him for even asking the question. That's not the purpose of this forum -- and somewhat explains why some feel this is a hostile place. If you can't contribute, then don't post. We'll leave it with a warning for now.
: : No, its not like "buying a car on payments". You're renting - meaning that as a rent stabilized tenant you will always be subject to increases in rent and you will always have play by the landlord's rules. And guess what, landlords own buildings to make a profit. Don't like this, think you can do it better yourself? Then buy a townhouse, condo, coop or apartment buiding. Run it however you want, and report back to us how it goes.
