Ever had a roommate pull a Single White Female on you? Ever had a landlord gaslight you into insanity? Ever signed a lease and then found out the management company rep died 17 years ago? Or, have you ever just had a nightmarishly selfish roommate or a disastrously lazy landlord who made renting a living hell? If any of these is the case, Curbed wants you.
What better way to fete this day, Halloween, than by asking you, dear readers, to send along your Renter Horror Stories. The rules are simple: we'll collect 'em all and put the best up to a vote next Thursday during Curbed's first ever Renters Week. The winner of this site's poll will face off against other worthy Renter Horror Stories from our other city sites in a massive poll hosted on our sister site Curbed National next Friday. Then--and here's the big thing--the national winner will claim one glorious month of gloriously free rent funded entirely (and jovially) by Curbed. (Up to $2,500, people--it shouldn't be our problem that some of you choose to rent houses in the Hills.)
Our tipline's officially open, so send your tales immediately. Then sit back and start dreaming of better days ahead.
