Even the Most Prepared Move Can Go Horribly Wrong
~ submitted by Tracy • North Vancouver, BC
Each year while studying in University, I would rent a room during the year and go home for the summer.
Trying to be ahead of the game, at the end of my second year, I set up my fall accommodation before leaving in May.
When I arrived in September, the upstairs landlord was not home, but my key opened the basement door and I moved in.
Studying in the day and working at night, I would arrive home late each day.
One night in November, I arrived home to find a strange man waiting for me.
Apparently the house had been sold in the summer and I was not informed! I had been living in an empty house for 2 monthes illegally!
I was very lucky to not have my next accommodations in a jail cell!!!
