Predatory Landlords

Students have found themselves evicted, homeless or in rentals with terrible issues. We want to help you make the best choice possible. Request a free background check on any landlord or property from the NHO by emailing us the name and property information. Beware of any landlord exhibiting these behaviors:

  • refusal to provide a sample lease or allow time to review the lease before signing
  • pressuring you into signing a lease on the spot or quickly
  • allowing more than 3 unrelated people to live together
  • leaving a tenant’s name off the lease
  • delayed/slow communication
  • voicemail that is full or not set-up
  • refusal to get agreements in writing
  • refusal to provide a check-in sheet and perform a walk-through
  • requiring more than 60-days notice to end the lease
  • requiring earnest money
  • cash-only transactions
