We had kind of a falling out with our landlady, we have to be out by July 24th. We haven't been evicted, we pay our rent on time every month and we haven't broken anything on the lease agreement. We're month to month right now. Her septic system is jacked up and she refused to fix it, blaming us and our water usage. We called the health department who issued her a violation for septic failure and who also checked our usage with the water company and found no fault with us. Still, she thinks we did something to it, so she wrote us a letter to be out.
I'm concerned she'll try to keep our security deposit because she thinks this is our fault. That's neither here nor there, not sure what to do about it if she does.
Anyway, we don't want the kids to have to change schools. We've only found one house for rent in our price range in the school district. There are 6 kids. The house is ALMOST perfect...fenced in yard, good area, well kept, 4 bedrooms. The bad thing is there's only ONE bathroom. Ugh. We did it once before when we were in transition, it wasn't so bad, really, just a pain in the ass. The kids are older now, so it might be more of an issue.
There's another house we found. Different school district. Only 3 bedrooms, which is what we have now. We have bunk beds, the boys and girls are separated, everyone has their own bed and enough space in the bedrooms to play...so it's doable. It has 2 full bathrooms, fenced in yard, bigger kitchen/dining area. The schools are decent, but we really didn't want them to have to switch since the kids and teachers and I are already pretty well aquainted. It's a much newer and nicer house.
Which one would you go for?
