This past summer I interned at a tech company in San Francisco. Luckily, before moving to the west coast, I was able to find an apartment to rent with three other students from the university that I attend. Everything seemed to be falling into place until we found out, on the first night of our stay, that there was a restaurant directly below our apartment that played extermely loud music until the early hours of the morning.
Although I was able to moderate the disturbance by wearing earplugs, I couldn't help but keep thinking how I simply wished that I had known about this situation before signing to pay $1700 a month to live there. We even had the place checked out by a friend before we signed a lease, but the restaurant downstairs was quiet during the day and so the problem was not immediately apparent.
A few months later, I met some prospective tenants waiting outside my door for a viewing of the apartment. After initially just walking by them, I decided to turn around and enlighten them of the situation. As you can imagine, they were extremely thankful!
But what about the people viewing the apartment that I didn't run into? Or the ones that found the apartment online like I did? How could I communicate with them?
