Spiders, ants, broken windows, etc. They didn't want anything from us other than a very easy to pass credit check.

Totally depends on the area.
That's what happened to us with our first apartment too. We made too much for the low income, and all they required was a credit check on my husband, who had fairly lousy credit at the time.

Here it's not hard at all to share an apartment with no job, bad credit, etc. it's not going to be a nice place or long term lease, but if you hand them a security deposit and a month or two of rent, you're in.

You could easily get on a lease unemployed if you have a roommate, anywhere. Especially one who has been paying the rent alone just fine. Why would every tenant in one unit need an income? What if the tenants were a couple and the wife stayed home and did not work? As long as ONE tenant has good enough credit and income to qualify anyone else can live with them and any adult living in the unit must be on a lease. Think about it, otherwise every adult with bad credit and low income would be homeless. There are tons of lenient landlords in the world but even a strict one would allow a person with no income and bad credit to be on a lease as long as they had a roommate who qualified. A roommate counts as a cosigner.

I think the point is she's lucky she has the roommate because you can't easily get an apartment without him being that she's still unemployed.

I say that meaning I would say something about quiet hours and phrase it as "I need sleep to prep for job interviews" but otherwise just go about things graciously, it could be worse again.

I suppose one could get an apartment with bad credit, etc. I know that my roommates and I had to submit proof of income (copies of pay stubs from our jobs) in order to rent the apartment. When my roommates and I were trying to rent this townhouse, we had to get my friend's dad to cosign with all four of us in order to get approved for this townhouse. I have good credit, but one roomie has bad credit and the others had no credit. Of course, our landlord could just be particular. He did want double the security deposit after all, and our realtor had to tell him basically "Eff you." Lol

I think it's pretty neat that you have a place to stay to keep out of the elements and be safe. A few days ago you posted that you had no place to go at all. You could mention about the late night noise, but in your current situation, I think I'd be grateful to have a roof over my head and a place to be safe. Keep working on getting on your feet....a job, etc and you can one day get your own place.

If you're couch camping out of the goodness of someone's heart, yeah, be grateful and suck it up.

When you've paid half the rent and utilities it buys you some cooperation and compromise.
