Re: Lease Renewal

Re: Raise the rent and communication strategy

In CA it is valid to require renter's insurance. I do so whenever the tenant has mammalian pets (dogs, cats, ferrets) or large water filled objects such as water beds or fish tanks. This places their insurance ahead of mine in case of bites or leaks.

Re: Raise the rent and communication strategy

A landlords policy is different from an owners or renters policy.
For example a landlords policy generally doesn't cover tenants possessions. Depending upon the circumstances, dogs, water filled furniture, you may wish to require the tenant to [more]

Re: Is it impossible to buy food reasonably?

I never, ever claimed that they were lying. Neither did SP. We simply regard COL as inaccurate due to not including the rising cost of food and gasoline.

Re: Is it impossible to buy food reasonably?


The Cost of Living (as measured by the government) does not include food or gasoline, which is one reason why they keep insisting it hasn't grown much. Of course, those are also the two things that most consumers see big
