Re: Couples Stuck in USA - Rent on Israeli Apartments
There's a huge attitute problem amongst the young couples in Israel.

Most them are young kids, freshly married spoiled brats from well to do homes.

Israel to them is a "Camp". They sign $2,000-$3,000 leases while having 0 income (daddy pays).

They don't understand what a utility bill is, they can't wrap their immature heads around the concepts of Vaad Baayit or Arnona.

They treat it like a game. Which landlord can they screw next. I started vetting more and more but noticed that even the uber-rich don't care.

To them it's not an apartment, it's a honeymoon suite. Well if I can play games with Hotels I'm entitles to same here too, no?

There is a yid whose name is well know in the world, a level wealth on the richlist, probably the wealthiest chareidi family on earth (not American. Way wealthier than Scheiner Rechnitz etc).

His grandkids take apartments in Jerusalem by flashing the brand name. Tachlis, the rents do not get paid and you can't talk to any Dayan because no-one can go against these guys.

I think this might belong in the wedding thread, but sending off kids to Israel needs to way regulated past Corona.

/end rant

I'd love to respond to each of your ridiculous posts, but the time and patience is simply not there.
Your generalizations are very off. Here's another few widely accepted generalizations with significantly more truth to try on for size. 1)There isn't one single honest apt broker in this country. 2)Apt managers/brokers are greedy rats with the single goal of fleeching whatever they can from the "wealthy campers daddies" 3)There isn't one single honest apt broker in this country.

And the reason why you go through these hardships should be blindingly obvious to you. The only ones that pay your obscene prices are those are "honeymooners" because they are the only ones that can afford your artificially inflated rent. Don't try saying you can't get contracts signed, you can't take them to BD, they can't figure out bills, you can't get headchecks..... You knowingly and willingly overlook this issues and risks because Uncle Benjamin is all you can see when you're in this business. The vast majority of every other community in Jerusalem manage just fine. All of a sudden when your toupee hits the fan, you're the victim? Run an honest business and you wouldn't be as bitter.
The crowd you refer to is most certainly a miniscule portion of the Americans living in Israel, come out of your shell and look out of your bubble. Just remember a a moldy apple will keep on attracting worms. So to a moldy apple the world is full of creepy crawlies.

Now that we have this subtle rebuttal out of the way, I see no reason why they wouldn't have to pay rent. I was told the names of a couple Rabbanim who said people didn't have to pay, but when contacting said Rabbanim I was told otherwise. And as much as I'm aware any Chosen Mishpat BD that was asked so far in Jerusalem said they likely have to pay.

Do I have to write "/end rant"? Because I'm most certainly not done.

Well my lawyer says otherwise.
You or your lawyer are lying straight through your teeth. (Can also be both, that's not rules out)

Can't believe how the majority here are at the OP's throat, challenging him with regard to law & halachah, practically implying that he's the one wronging the tenants, & if he deals with this clientele he should suck it up. 

Fact is, these tenants are taking advantage of him, regardless which "class" they're part of.  Seems like most posters here are fine looking away at that, but when it comes to the landlord the law & halacha are quickly invoked.

FWIW, I'm a tenant, & I'd never dream of doing something like this. And no, I don't have the perfect landlord, far from it.  Still, my sense of menchlichkeit & decency dictate my actions, not "well the landlord deserves xxxx".

Stealing is stealing, regardless who the tenant is or whether the landlord has it coming to him. Period.

I didn't see anyone here say it's fine for the tenants to mess over and steal from landlord.
He came in here with a bunch of false accusations and generalizations, and with a few made up laws and statements, proceeded to tell us how he would illegally deal with his alleged situation.

If the tenant would have posted something like that, it may have gotten the same reaction.

Re: Forrest Fenn Treasure Found
Anyone here was planning on looking for it? Ever took a trip to find it? I was planning on doing it together with a trip to Yellowstone one day...

If you're not familiar with the story:

The announcement that it was found:
We have no real proof it was ever buried, nor that it was ever found...
