I need some other perspectives on this. My lease for next year (starting Feb 1) is due this week. We have a lot of false fire alarms in the building, which is a problem. Last night there was another alarm, but it wasn't false. Someone went and turned on the fire hoses stored on the 3rd floor and flooded the center stairwell down to the ground level. (Thankfully no apartments were flooded and no one was hurt.) Before this happened I was inclined to ask if I could have a 3 to 6 month extension while I prepare to purchase a house. I don't see one being done and closed in 2 months. Now I'm thinking of not renewing and moving to the cat friendly complex up the street that's more than willing to do a short-term lease. I really don't like the upheaval of moving twice but I really don't feel safe. What would you do?
