I was not sure what I was going to do. My landlord told me just the other day that I am not going to be able to renew my lease. I want to be angry over that but it is probably a blessing because we don’t really get along. He has been raising the rent almost every year for the last four years, and it was just getting to be where I could not afford it. I decided to look at luxury apartments for Jackson MS before I looked at any rental houses for a number of reasons.
The main reason is because I did not want to get into the same situation again. When I rented the house several years ago, I was dealing with his father, who is a lovely person. He gave control to his son though, and that is when things started changing for me. I did not want to live somewhere where the person in charge could just quote any price and I had to accept it or move. I knew I would be better protected if I was in an apartment rather than a house since complexes tend to have management companies running them.
I also decided that if I never had to mow grass again, I would be a very happy person. I had a rather large yard, but I rarely used it. The majority of the time that I was doing something in my yard, it was just to take care of it. I would rather have someone else mow the grass so I can do whatever I want to do. When I fond Woodlands Apartments, I knew that I had found my next home. I filled out the application and just found out today that I can move in when I want. I could not be happier about this!
