Whats sad is the the think the "poor" people make too much noise so they have to have carpet so they don't bother the people below them. Mean while the people above them can keep the wood floor and make as much noise as possible.
That's just sad & if I'm not mistaking I believe the "poor" people have their own separate entrance/exit. I hate carpet and I never realized how much it could actually cost you. You're friend got lucky, I don't think I will be that lucky, the building also doesn't let you use a moving company of YOUR choice, it has to be moving companies they have because you get a "discount", I don't even have furniture. I'm coming from living with my parent and only have clothes *rolls eyes* buttttt whatever makes management happy.

Do you at least get to choose your carpet? Yah I wouldn't know how much carpet costs, I always have wood floors. I have allergies so carpets aren't good for me. How much will it cost you, like $1000?

I've moved many times in my life and always use cheap services, so I'm sure what their discount is would still be 3-4 times more than what I pay.

I believe you do get to choose your own carpet. Since 80% of the apartment must have carpet I can expect to spend $1,000-1,200 and that's just the carpet price not the installation price.

Can't you just get an area rug? You're having carpet installed?

Since you are living at home, you may not no that all RS leases say that 80% of the floor must be covered. So unless they told you you MUST install carpet and they need to see it, you are allowed to cover your apartments in rugs.

I didn't know that was possible. I assumed it would look silly having a bunch of rugs together so figured to have it installed was the only way. Still living at home with my parent so I know nothing about that but thank you.

Usually landlords don't check unless there is a noise complaint. And if they do check, seeing an area rug in the room is usually enough.

Everyday is a blessing from God; but today was unbelievable. Signed the lease, got the keys. Beautiful. During my experience, all staff were professional throughout the process, and I'm speaking as someone who once got a denial letter in the mail, so that speaks volumes. One bedroom, open kitchen, huge bathroom, wash and dryer in the apartment, and if that wasn't enough, a balcony with a view of the Hudson River. Its months of paperwork and back and forth, but well worth it.
