So, I’m moving to Rapid City, SD. to get my Bachelors in Nursing. Moving in August.
After sending my darlin’ S.O. to check out apartments for me in the city, I settled on one that was relatively close to the school.
I called, asking for a brochure. Brochure arrived. Brochure says: “HEAT, GAS, WATER AND WASTE REMOVAL INCLUDED”.
So, I fill out application and send it. Requesting a one bedroom, and moving between the 1st and 2nd week of august.
I get approved provisionally on the account that I don’t have a credit history (long live crummy jobs, 4 years and I never made enough to get a credit card. Even Target cards rejected me). They tell me I’ll have to pay an extra deposit.
I tell them no problem. I have enough money in the bank to pay it. I just don’t have credit history.
S.O. is getting leave in August and tells me he’ll help me move everything up there, and then we can take off for Ohio (being introduced to bf’s parents :shock: I’m nervous about that as well).
So, contract arrives Friday afternoon.
Contract says that I HAVE to pay all of the utilities. And, they gave me a move-in date smack right in the middle of August.
So tomorrow, I’m going to call them and try to find out why exactly didn’t I qualify for the utilities and if I can move the move-in date to something more reasonable.
Bad thing is, if they won’t budge, there isn’t much I can do about it. I’ll have to take it, since there’s very few places where someone with no credit can get into, and I really need to move up there to get my bearings before classes begin in the Spring.
Not to mention, S.O. only has this much leave time during August.
Ain’t bureaucracy fun? :crying:
