I like what you have to say about getting the lease before I go, but what about breaking the lease? It is possible this may happen, if I get into NYU off the waitlist (I didn't say it was likely!)

Our arrangements have been very friendly and informal, and I really want to live in this place. I want to know what will happen if I break the lease, but I don't want her to decide I'm too much of a risk and not rent to me. How can I protect myself without ruining the agreement?

I have to say I am not very worried about the place being empty in the event of a sudden upset, because everywhere I have lived I have always helped find a good person to replace me, and I'm sure I'd be able to do that here. I don't think there's a good way to put that to her though: "Uh, I might skip out on you in August, but, don't worry about it I will take good care of you" doesn't have the right ring.

My new landlady doesn't seem very experienced. She has a boilerplate lease that doesn't include anything about notice before entering the premises or what happens if we break the lease. I am not hugely experienced--what should I look for in the agreement?

Also, she isn't requiring that I sign it until I get there in a month, but I need to send $950 deposit now. Should I insist on both of us signing before I pay? It's complicated since she's across the country from me!

Have you noted the excellent biking opportunities at UCDavis? They even have sensors to change the light for you when you roll onto them. It's awesome there.

This is the big Eugene/UOregon thread I remember, so I am going to post a link here to my post about my 2br house that is up for rent now. i am moving out June 30, and it should be available in mid-July/August (probably negotiable, most things are). Good luck everybody moving to Eugene!,34916.msg560928.html#msg560928

Incoming 1Ls / Eugene Oregon Off-Campus 2-Bedroom House - $685

I am moving to Charlottesville and will be leaving behind my beloved home in a wonderful area of Eugene Oregon. I know how hard it is to find housing when not able to visit in person, so I wanted to make this listing available to law students who are moving to Oregon. I will be taking thorough inside pictures this weekend, but here are some attributes of the home.

The whole place was remodeled, new walls, new everything, just before I moved in last June. It has lovely pine floors (new) and blue/gray carpet in both bedrooms. There's one bathroom with a full tub. There are skylights in the back bedroom and the kitchen, washer/dryer hookups (I may even part with my washer & dryer), living and dining areas separate from kitchen. Kitchen has linoleum floors, builtin shelves and unique octagonal window. Windows and skylights in all the rooms let in lots, lots of light. There is a new front porch and a back patio where I currently grow tomatoes (which I may bequeathe to the next resident)

If you Google 250 N. Grand you will get a very near idea of where this home is (I'm not putting up my exact address). It is a stand alone house (but is very near its right side neighbor). The backyard is huge, and is shared with the left and right neighbors, who are very friendly when we manage to see them. There are raised garden beds, fig, plum, peach, and apple trees, and raspberry vines.

The neighborhood: Whiteaker Elementary school is right on the block--the block terminates in the river park, which has a bike path you can take all the way to Agate Street, and over to the school, if you fancy that. This ride would take you 15-20 minutes and be a great beginning/end to the day. (On hot days, if you ride in the other direction, you will come to a deep swimming hole on the river with a rope swing.) There's a bus stop at the end of the block on Railroad St, and just driving to the law school is about 3 miles. I love this neighborhood, especially the Whiteaker Neighborhood Association, so much. The people here are really the friendliest in Eugene.

I think this is a special home that would be perfect for someone who doesn't want to be right in the middle of the law school all the time. I would have lived there if I had gone to U of O. I am taking names and will send pictures by email this Sunday. I am moving out end of June; it will probably be available either in mid-July or August 1.

Email layna underscore faye at Yahoo to let me know you're interested in pics. Call Robert & Linda (my landlords) at (541) 689-1738.

Anyone know?
