  • Is it legally justifiable for me to break my lease?

    My lanlord essentially told me she doesn't like my gf coming over. My gf only comes over 1-2x a week. I also asked my lanlord of the issue was sound or an increase in utilities, which she responded no. Just that having my gf over makes them uncomfortable. 

    So I want to break my lease. Legally can I be penalized for this?

  • What should you do if your lanlord accuses you of having another person living with you?

    I came home today with a copy of my lease along with a note taped to my door. Essentially accusing me of having another individual living with me. My gf (I'm queer) has been staying over 1 or 2 nights a week, and I stay at her place about the same amount. However, as far as I'm concerned staying over is not the same as living somewhere. So I was shocked to get this especially when my lanlord usually just texts me when there's an issue. Not really sure how to address this.

    When is it time to bring up spiders to your landlord?

    I got a basement apartment off campus, that isn't technically off campus housing but the landlord only really rents to college students. 

    Since it's a basement apartment I anticipated spiders, however, not it's getting to be too much. 

    I'm seeing at least 1 a day, some days as many as 4, and most are BIG. Average is a little under an inch the big ones are almost 2in.

    I clean houses as a part time job and many of them have finished basement that are BARELY used and I've rarely seen spiders in them better yet this size. 

    This makes me think they didn't seal up my apartment properly, because I'm pretty sure her husband built it-- which makes me think they cut corners to save money. 

    The apartment had some slight flooding earlier, but not only like two puddles. But then mold grew on like 50% of my fabric items!!!!! Which also makes me think it was poorly built. 

    I've been putting off mentioning the spiders but I'm honestly at my wits end. They're crawling across my room during zoom meetings, I've found one on my stove. And like I said, if they were Normal sized I would be annoyed but I'd deal with it, however they're big. I also have spider traps that are catching some as well, which just highlights how bad the issue is. 

    Help please?

    P.s that spider got crushed but when it's legs were spead it was slightly bigger than the bottle opening. I found 2 of those yesterday as well as 3, 1inch ones.

  • Help getting rid or killing Wolf Spiders!?

    I live in a basement apartment and am finding a ridiculous amount of wolf spiders. There's nothing worse than sitting in a zoom class and seeing a 2in spiders sprinting across your room. I understand that they kill other bugs but frankly, I'd rather handle small beetles or daddy long leggers than these 2 in sprinters. 

    I have tried cinnamon candles and peppermint oil and these do not seem to be doing anything. I have also set up some glue traps which have caught a few, but I am STILL finding 1-2 every 2 days are so and they are BIG. I also vacuum WEEKLY so I know that's not the issue and I have very little  to no clutter on the ground. 

    I can handle smaller ones, but these two inchers are giving me bad anxiety and disrupting my ability to focus and study-- 

    I also have heard that spiders are the worse during Augsut- October because they are looking for mates, which explains why they seem to just stroll out in the open.

     But does that mean I will see them less in other months and if I just tough it out I wont see so many?

    If not is there anything else I can try to get rid of or kill them?

  • When do you replace glue traps?

    i have a basement apartment with a **** ton of large 1in-2in wolf spiders. So i finally snapped and set up glue traps everywhere. 

    When should i replace them? As soon as it catches something? Or can I wait until it catches a few things?

    If there's already a dead spider on it will other spiders avoid it?

  • Can upstairs neighbors hear me having sex?

    I live in a basement apartment and my neighbors kids are above me head... 

    Do you think theyd hear me have sex?? My bed is on a frame with no headboard-- so there won't be any banging or creaking noises. I also once asked if they ever heard my music and they said only 1x or 2x the sound but none of the words or really the beat.

    I also can't hear them, only when they're banging, screaming, or vacuuming. But never talking or normal walking etc

    So if I play music and we dont scream, do you think they'll hear us?

    What type of spider is this? and how do I get rid of them?

    I recently moved into a basement apartment and I definitely expected to see some spiders...but not this many and not this big. 

    I recently found 4 about 1/2 in spiders in one day. I can handle that size, even though unpleasant. But for the 2nd time i have found HUGE spiders. About 1.5-2inches big I can't deal with finding these massive spiders every week. It looks smaller in the pic bc i crushed it haha..

    Does anyone know what type either of them are and good methods to get rid of them? 

    I've been using a cinnamon wax melt as well as spraying a lemon mist around door frames. In addition to vacuuming weekly.

    I do understand that spiders are worse this time of year but I'm at my wits end here...

  • What's the best way to wash out mold that's on clothes?

    Is baking soda with the washing machine set on high enough to kill it?

  • How do you deal with mold in a basement apartment?

    I have an off campus basement apartment and after some water leakage due to a hurricane A LOT of mold started growing in my closet, on my door, and on some shoes. 

    My lanlord fixed the dehumidifier put it on high and have bagged up everything in my closet-- I'll wash them in baking soda. I have poured baking soda all over my carpets, and sprayed my closet, hangers, door, and shoes in vinegar. I'll let that sit for about 1 hour and then wipe down and vacuum. Is this enough to prevent it from regrowing? Especially since now I've turned the dehumidifier on? I've also placed a damprid in my closet for extra measure.
