It has been my experience that not all landlord agencies really follow their rules to the letter. When a buddy was shopping for a quadplex, he toured many, many units that did not appear to have gotten notice. When i had a pet snake, i found that the maintenance people started following the "notice" rule to the letter, after their first visit. Your experience may differ.

Default Squeaky Wheel

Yes/No - I have known several apt mgrs and they are finely tuned to any sign of trouble and it is imperative to get on their "good side." Once there, they will look the other way and even warn you if a zero tolerance BS is coming down the pike. Be a good Tenent for 6 mths, pay on time, be courteous to all, keep noise down etc.

Remember, a$$holes outnumber good people 20 to 1 so it essential to be counted as part of the ONE crowd. Once there, you can enquire as to why the policy is in place - no one wants to see the 20 armed - receipe for disaster and probably why the policy is in place.

No apt complex likes to see good people leave, if enough of you fail to renew your lease and let them know why, politely, you can effect change.

If your caught w a gun it can be seen as a violation of your lease and cost you your security deposit. Friends living together is a great way to test a friendship even if entered into w the best of intentions.

Law schools often have students do pro bono work for people. I'd contact one and put myself in the que. knowing your options & assoc penalties allows you to make informed decisions.

You are totally correct on living together being a test of friendship. In my experience food issues can be the biggest problem. If you are the type of person who makes food and your roommates are the types who eat leftovers you can be in for some tough times. It's best to be upfront and honest about complaints because if you let an issue stew inside then by the time you address it you will have 10 issues to bitch about to your friends. It's similar to a marriage in many ways, you need to lay down the rules for common areas and rules for food and who is responsible for what. It's not fun to be that guy who brings up all these issues but talking about them now can save you a huge headache and loss of friendship down the line.

^^^ Yunus is right; you should never assume that your new roomies have ever had to do anything for themselves, like cook, clean, buy toilet paper, etc. You don't need to tell them how, just to be aware that you may not be able to count on them 100% to act like they are house-trained.

I mean, c'mon, people need to know how to bury their own dead hookers and such, good grief.

Not to be a 'stick in the mud', but if you sign a contract, live by it. If you can't live by it, don't sign it & rent somewhere else.

My whole complex is strapped. Lol. Except for the lady on the third floor. All together we have maybe 25 pistols/long guns. But it's only a three story complex. Ain't nobody messing with us. And we are all close with each other. Good people. And we all get our ammo from luck gunner.com. Funny huh?

I would keep one defense gun in my room and have a deadbolt-locked door to my room (is there any prohibition to that in the lease?). The rest of the guns keep at the P's house.

I have heard of many cases where in a roommate living situation some of the guns were re-purposed into cash for some stupid reason (to buy beer) and nobody took any time to figure out whose gun was to be converted into beer (it is always the roomie who is not present for the discussion). I think I have one of those guns today (in my defense it didn't buy too much beer).

If you do keep a gun in your room, keep it locked up tight at all times unless you are sitting on top of it and sober.
