I was a landlord for a while. Tenants that pay on time and aren't a hassle are worth a mint. If that sounds like you ask for a discount...

Agreed, ACN1. I own a condo and rent it out and won’t be increasing. In fact, if they ask for a discount i may give it because my tenants are that independent and it’s basically free money right now. I live in NYC in a rented apartment so I’m going to ask.

My renewal offer was for the same price. I sent a note asking if there was consideration for adjusting prices based on community resources no longer being open (pool, spa, gym, lounge, etc.). No response yet — obviously we don’t know how long those will be closed but it’s already been 2 months and if that’s worth $100/mo that’s significant

Anger and forcefulness. Esp in NYC they arw tricksters and will lie to your face about numbers—since there is no regulation, they get away with anything they want. Best bet is go do a lot of research, treat it like a car dealership purchase and be ready to walk away

Anyone else at a firm so rooted in the past that you’re embarrassed explaining it to other attorneys? Example: We are 10 months into COVID and my firm still hasn’t decided on/implemented a video meeting platform (Zoom, Teams, etc.). So if I want to have a video meeting I have to ask the other party to use their video services. And it’s not at all a funding issue.

Does anyone have any thoughts about a company terminating an employee within the HR team for testing positive for COVID 19 and further accusing the said employee of being the one that created the entire team to become infected by not answering the health screening questions accurately? The week prior to employee being tested the entire team was in the office sick. The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.

For those who got their coronavirus stimulus checks, what did you or plan to spend it on?

Tired of being shamed by family for the precautions I’m taking to ensure my family, including 2-month-old, are not putting ourselves in any situation that may cause unnecessary risk of contracting covid. Was called selfish for not attending a bday party (ironic), was made to feel bad when I asked family (who had travelled to Florida for fun, gone out to bars/restaurants, etc.) to get tested before coming to see the newborn. Just be respectful of how others are dealing with the pandemic, please!
