When I moved into this apartment, I paid first and last month's rent to the landlord, and a realtor fee equal to another month of rent. ("Is there a security deposit?" "No, this landlord just wants first and last month's rent.") As February will be my last month living here, I thought February rent had been pre-paid.

The landlord just turned up demanding rent. In the world as he understands it, "last month's rent" can be re-imbursed after the tenant returns a clean apartment with no nicks or scratches. But only an irresponsible idiot would take it as any kind of license to not pay. *eyeroll*

I'm looking for a new apartment, and concerned about this guy being a reference for future landlords. Even though the most critical information he is likely to give a future landlord is that I can be bullied.

What an asshole. Boston's rental market needs to be fumigated top to bottom. I think I may have the only nice landlady in the city.

Ugh, so yes, it was a security deposit. Lying like that should be a warning for the next tenant, if there were some way you could hide it for them.

Yeah, get out, get out fast, and maybe call down the Heroic Building Inspector again.
