Met my current landlord during a sort of fluke conversation in a street where it was mentioned he was unsure who to choose from with two tenants
offering a deposit. Offered him nothing but a promise that I would pay the rent on time but could not offer a deposit due to situations beyond my
control. I offered a handshake whilst saying "trust your judgement". Moved in two days later.
Just over a year now, ive never missed a payment, never caused any bother and they have always been one phone call away if I needed them.
I think the person is just desperate for a home, having shelter is pretty much secondary to food and water. Sometimes we face circumstances that
validate asking around and putting a bit of pressure on others for survival, don't be so quick to judge
Don't get me wrong here, not saying it always works out but it can.
