    Default 8Th Street sublet/room for rent/share... BEWARE!

    For those who are familiar with my previous post about a subletting landlady from hell.... she's still renting out and these are her current postings on craigslist:

    Aug 11 - Room sublet-Oct-Nov - $650 (South Beach) rooms & shares

    Aug 11 - Room sublet, Oct-Nov - $650 / 1br - (South Beach) sublets & temporary

    Aug 11 - Room sublet/short term/ Oct Nov - $650 (South beach) rooms & shares

    Aug 11 - Room sublet/Short term/October-November - $650 (South beach) sublets & temporary

    Aug 4 - Room sublet/short term/Oct-Nov - $650 (South beach) sublets & temporary

    Jul 29 - Room for Sublet/Short term month of October - $650 (South Beach) rooms & shares

    Jul 16 - room sublet/one or two months beginiing Oct 1 2012 - $650 (South beach) rooms & shares


    Anyone renting from her: please get a written rental agreement, and please be very careful with your security deposit (she claimed we had destroyed things in the apartment and refused to pay it all back upon departure).
    Any questions please private message me!

    The price alone is a big warning, nothing is that cheap in sobe.

    yes, a written lease or contract is a bottom-line requirement for any rental, in any city.

    If the landlord or sub-lessor does not have a written lease or contract as an automatic part of the transaction, that's an immediate dealbreaker (for me anyway).

    never never never would i ever rent or lease anything without a lease or contract, and a walk-through & checklist of everything in the place signed by both parties included in the lease contract.

    We really oughta start warning people who come on here asking about cost, too, that if you see something well below the range we give them it's probably a scam. As Jess said, those prices are a BIG red flag. Probably preying on the naive who don't see that rent as cheap.
