Hey TQC, I'm getting kicked out of my apartment a month and a half before my lease is up and before I graduate from college. None of my friends have space for me to stay with them (although, they have all offered to let me crash at their place for a few days), but I'm thinking of just trying to rent a room for the rest of the school year.|
When should I tell the person I'm trying to rent from that I'll only be renting for about a month and a half? When I call them to ask about the place, when I come to see the place, or some other time?
Also, when do I explain to them I'm not into partying and I'm looking for a quiet, study conducive atmosphere? Most of the ads I'm looking at don't specify what kind of roommate they're looking for. Again, do I ask when I'm calling them, when I look at the place, etc.?
I've already tried the temporary section of craigslist, and I couldn't find anything that worked for me.
