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.
With Halloween and Curbed's second ever Renters Week approaching, we're asking you to send along your Rental Horror Stories. The rules are simple: we'll collect 'em all and put the best up to a vote. The winner of Curbed LA's poll will face off against other champion Rental Horror Stories from our other city sites in a massive poll hosted on our sister site Curbed National. 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 start sending your terrifying tales now.
