My apartment is condemned

I live in a newly renovated apartment with 5 other roomies that go to my school or a school around here. We picked out of a hat for the best room. I got first pick, which is sweet, because I get the biggest room in the 2 floor apartment (1st floor and basement) so I can fit all my boards and stuff. It took me a month but the day after I got my fridge all set up and at the perfect temperature for my beers, my bamboo plant and cactus settled in, and my pink floyd, and Led Zeppelin posters hung up, I find out we had a building inspector come by.

The basement is now condemned, and the 3 of us that live there have to be relocated, ASAP. I get lucky and live in my sister's sweet condo down the street for the time being but my other 2 roommates are stuck in the living room.

We had the sickest place to live, and now without a nice basement, its only average. I'm just kinda bummed/pissed right now and needed to vent. I do feel bad for the landlord (who lives above us). He is going to be put in a tight spot finanically. Moving blows.

I can't help but question how nice the basement could have been if it was condemned. Why was it condemned ?

I agree, moving blows. That's one reason why I sold and donated all my furniture, electronics, dishes, cutlery, etc. I do miss the comforts I had, but I like the flexibility I gained.

the windows were too small in the rooms, so we couldn't get out in an emergency. When the landlord bought the house, he thought it was already inspected. Sucks for him. Before, he was able to get rent from 10 people for 2 apartments, now he's stuck with only 7, for a house he paid probably $1 million for.

Out here, you can donate your furniture by simply putting it out on trash day. It'll get picked up by someone before the dump truck gets it. I'll be just moving 2 floors above, so it won't be too much of a problem.

its in the basement so the windows are already pretty much in the ceiling and putting them lower means he would have to dig out around the house somehow and it would not be up to code because the integrity of the structure is at stake.

now one of my roommates' parents want to sue the landlord. I'm totally against it and will have nothing to do with it.
