There are plenty of ways an independent landlord could get over on you as a tenant. Knowing your rights as a tenant could pay off big and protect you from a money-hungry landlord. Perfect example of this: A 30-year old Harlem, NY tenant is paying only $1 a month (yes, only $1!) for his two-bedroom apartment because of a loophole he found that his landlord did not overturn, DNAinfo New York online reported.
Make sure you are well-informed and knowledgeable about these main factors of renting from an owner before it becomes an financial and legal issue.
