  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Leases leave students hanging

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Now that summer is coming to an end, many Ohio State University students are packing their belongings and preparing to move to new places. A big problem for many students is the period of time between moving out of one apartment and before being allowed to move in to the next.

Brittany Sagle, a sophomore in allied medicine, is one student who is having problems with the move to her new apartment. Because Sagle and her roommates are moving in early, damages to the floor, which are supposed to be fixed before they move in, might not get repaired.

“They have to have it fixed for us,”Sagle said. “It’s in our lease.”

Because they are moving in early, they not only have to pay a $150 fee, they have to sign a paper that said there is no guarantee that everything will be fixed or cleaned, she said.

Many companies will require students to agree to move in to the apartment “as is” if they want to move in early. This means the apartment might need to be cleaned or any damages in the apartment will still need to be fixed.

Another issue students have is where to keep all of their belongings for the time between moves when they have no place to live.

Amanda Parker, a senior in nutrition, said she is frustrated with having to figure out what to during the time she has no apartment.

“It’s a really big pain because you have to move out by the 31st but you can’t move in till the 15th,” she said.

Parker, who is from New York, said it is difficult being from out of state because she has to find a place to store all of her belongings. She said she took her belongings to her grandmother’s house, but her roommate had to pay for storage.

Julie Hutchison from Buckeye Real Estate said the company does the best they can to accommodate people who want to get in early. She said all of their leases end on Sept. 2 and begin on September 16.

“Everyone wants to stay later than their date and everyone wants to move in early,” she said.
