Can a foreigner buy...? Can a foreigner rent...? What about deposits? Bad neighbors? Unreasonable landlords? Miscellaneous problems?

Foreigner's Trap Apartment

Postby spyfire27 » 08 Jul 2012, 03:19

I already posted several comments on this board regarding the different issues I am having with my Taiwanese landlord and roommate (which turns out to be her nephew), and everybody suggested me to leave this place. I really don't like the idea of moving and have her steal my two-month deposit after all the trouble she caused me, and finding another apartment for only three months is a pain in the ass here. I am getting burned out by lack of sleep and that is exactly what they want to achieve. How can some people be so cruel, I can't believe that. I pay my rent on time, I am very quiet, etc, I am still bullied by these two people.

Can I post the address of this haunted apartment with pictures to prevent other naive foreigners to fall into this trap? Can I file a complain somewhere? I am guessing not, but...

I'm no psychologist, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that a guy who calls himself King James and has his initials and "Vivat Rex" -- Latin for "Long live the king" -- on his custom-made Nike jacket, and has CHOSEN 1 tattooed across his back and WITNESS tattooed on one calf and HISTORY on the other calf might have a big ego. It is an ego borne of insecurity, and this is why he left for Miami in the first place: He wanted things to be easier. He wanted Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh at his side and South Beach a short drive away. That is the fundamental disconnect between James and Cleveland fans. They gave up on easy a long time ago.
