Citizens of the Curbed Universe, we know most of you have truly unforgettable stories about awful landlords, roommates, and rental apartments. Care to share? Because Curbed wants to hear from you.
Next week will be Curbed's Renters Week, wherein we dedicate roughly half our content to the glorious world of renting in Chicago. We'll be covering everything from where to rent right now to the very best and very worst apartments in Chicago. And, of course, Rental Horror Stories. That's where you come in, dear, sweet readers. Starting now, now please send us your renter horror stories for entry into a national Renters Week contest. The rules are simple: we'll collect 'em all and put the best up to a vote next week. The winner on this site will face off against other worthy Renter Horror Stories from our other Curbed sites in a massive poll hosted on curbed.com next Friday. Then—and here's the big thing—the national winner will claim a two-night staycation at a local boutique hotel! Our tipline's officially open, so send your tales immediately. Thanks for playing!
