Hi everyone! I actually didn't know where to go to post this, so I looked for this community, and this seemed like the best place to go with my situation!|
So, three of my friends and I are looking to get an apartment. At first I was hesitant, because of my lack of a job, but they wanted me to come along. Because I don't have a job, they instead want me to pay with cleaning services, cooking services, etc. Which frankly, I'm completely fine with. I know it's been done before, because apparently my mother did the same thing back in her college days, too.
But I know times are different now. At first I figured, as long as the rent is being paid, who cares? But now I'm worried that, because I don't have a job, perhaps they wouldn't give us an apartment?
Is there anything in particular I should say/do? I have money in my checking account, so would bringing proof of that help? I'm sorry if I'm being unclear, but this is the first time that I've ever made a decision this big and I'm nervous and unsure about a lot of the terms and such. Thanks in advance for any help, though!
