SORT BY Relevancy
Nationally, rents are so far above wages that of the 3,141 counties in the United States, in only four of them can a person making minimum wage afford a one-bedroom apartment.
It is happening across the country, but the once flourishing suburbs of Chicago are being hit hardest in the nation: The RENT INCREASES and landlords can legally hold a deposit. Of course, this has been the law of the land for some time. Problem is, today as wages are not increasing, social security benefits have a "fake rise" and businesses continue to fold- tenants find themselves "stuck" in a rental that rises in rent... and the only way they can move is by using security deposit money to move, which is wrapped into their current dwelling. THE EFFECTS OF RENTAL INCREASES ACROSS THE NATION ARE HURLING LOW INCOME FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS DEEPER INTO POVERTY.

We all have had bad experiences with companies before -- a bank that charged you a fee in error, a package that never arrived, a mechanic who doesn't seem to be charging you a fair price for your repairs. We want to hear about yours, call (347) 637-2532 and vent your complaints and find out what you can do about it.
"Foreclosure rescue scams, dirty debt collection tactics, sudden store closings, and landlords skimping on the heat and ignoring needed repairs are just some of the issues that confront consumers in these difficult economic times," said Susan Grant, Director of Consumer Protection at the CFA. "In addition to those problems, new types of scams and new payment methods that are being exploited by fraudsters pose challenges for consumers and consumer agencies."
Good news, there are people that are here to help. Those people -- 40 agencies in 20 states across the U.S. -- have pooled their records with the Consumer Federation of America and the North American Consumer Protection Investigators to track and analyze the biggest problems facing consumers, and what laws should be instated to better protect them.

How restrictive should a landlord be when advertising for a tenant? Many landlords face this conundrum when their property is available for letting. It is very tempting to seek a tenant whose lifestyle and background are saint-like, but this will restrict your applicants, and likely produce voids. This episode touches on the issues a landlord needs to consider when seeking a tenant.
This week author Mitzi Szereto will talk about her book; NORMAL FOR NORFOLK (THE THELONIOUS T. BEAR CHRONICLES). Pub landlords are being murdered in quaint Norfolk villages - and the light of suspicion shines on hapless ursine photojournalist Thelonious T.
