Well happy freaking birthday to me.
Got a call and a vague yet urgent message from the property manager at quarter after 8 AM today. Spent 90 minutes fending off a panic attack trying to get hold of him to find out what was going on, because his phone line was going to the answering service until 9 am, and then he was not in the office and I had to wait for a callback.

The landlord is putting the place on the market. I need to take time off work to let a realtor in to take pictures of the place, and then more time off work to let random people wander around in it whenever they feel like it. I've been through this crap twice before and the situation pretty much triples my regular anxiety levels. I really don't need that, especially considering tax season is in more than full swing and I'm already drowning trying to keep up with the crap at work.

In short, I'm probably going to move rather than put up with this bullshit again. Somehow.

Happy freaking birthday. :-P


In other news, I see some much happier birthday greetings in my inbox! Thank you guys, I'll be reading and responding to you later tonight probably. :-)

Ugh, living in a place up for sale is AWFUL. Sorry.

Happy birthday though!

Thanks. The last time this happened I bought an apartment. There was nowhere available to move to with a cat. I lost about a good year's wages when I sold that place last year since the market had gone to hell. I'm kinda glad buying a place isn't an option, but there are very few rentals available in this town.

Ugh, that sounds awful. I hope you can move and get out of that situation. :(

Hope you otherwise have a good birthday!

My lease is up in June I think, so it's okay for timing that way, but I have to think about this and find out what the renting options are. I haven't given notice yet, but It's pretty certain they won't be having me sign another lease If I'm here past June 1 which should keep the lease from being an issue.

I'm finishing dishes and eating dinner and then I might have some plans...

Oh...?

I'm so, so sorry.

Happy birthday anyway!

Sigh. Thanks. This 'being an adult' crap sucks sometimes.

Still - Happy Birthday!
May it be a great year for you, and all the best alltogether.

Thank you!

Oh man, that is absolute crap. I was in a similar position with my first flat, and it's no fun at all. Having to tidy up and make it look nice so that photographers can take nice pictures that make people want to buy the place YOU live in? Unfair.

Happy belated birthday, in spite of that!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: April 1st, 2017 06:45 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I've been in this position before and the realtors around here have zero respect for tenants rights or privacy. It also doesn't help that I'm dealing with a massive workload right now, and between that and coping with depression, anxiety and medical issues, cleaning often goes by the wayside. :-/

Hells Bells that bites. *Hugs*

Oh yes indeed. No confirmation on the termination of the rental on the landlord's end yet or not, but since word of this came down almost exactly 2 months before the lease is up for renewal, the writing is on the wall. Even if someone who did want it as a rental bought it, the likelihood they'd want me in here paying the grandfathered rent I am is laughable.

oh lordy :/ *HUGS*

Yep. I hate realtors from all angles now. And this time I'm not even going to have a car. Positive side of this is most of my books are still in boxes in a pile in the middle of the living room, so that's stuff that's already packed up.

Oh, holy shit, really? *kicks your landlord*
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: April 4th, 2017 11:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah really. It sucks, but at least there's a little lead time, so it could definitely be worse.

I also don't know if this will get through since the new livejournal TOS is keeping me out. I can't even back up my posts. Baaaaah this is all so annoying. I've also been so busy I'm like days behind on tumblr and haven't read any posts so thank you for commenting because I am living in an enforced involuntary social vacuum right now and I am having difficulty coping.

TLDR *clings to you*
