Our landlords can bring down the price to help frum yidden, instead they rent and sell to blacks and yuppies for more cash, forcing jews out of crown heights

I don’t either like the ridiculous prices of renting an apartment I don’t care about the excuse that the landlords keep saying that they need to live also they could live just fine even if it would be a bit cheaper its not fear how thees people take advantage of others its got to be stopped soon they are making it very difficult for people to live!

We each need Hashem’s brochos. No matter what someone does to us, please take a look at Shulchan Aruch, Even HaEzer, Siman 26 and the RaMo there before thinking about mesira.

Landlords are often mean stingy rich people who are willing to make a tenant miserable just to earn a few more dollars.

If you opt to live in CH, don’t complain about prices, it’s the fact that you and others opt to live there that raises those prices in the first place.

During the 1970s and the next few decades, the laws became more and more protective of the rights of tenants. This was necessary, for sure.

Did you know that a person who’s in your home as a guest for more than a month can get away with staying longer and claiming that you agreed to rent to them for free? Sometimes that person can also behave in a manner that drives out the owner, and then that “guest” can make claim to take over your property, stealing it right… Read more »
