I've got a quick question for you lawyer types out there.
My g/f and I just signed a lease together that is going to start on the 20th of December. For the prorated amount, the apartment complex insists on using 30 days to calculate the daily rate.
This is bullshit to me since there are 31 days in December, making the actual daily rate lower.
Might not sound like much, but it ends up being about $50 more using their calculations than ours. I can easily afford it, but I don't want to give these money grubbing assholes more than they are entitled.
This is in Virginia, as I'm sure it varies state by state. Anyone familiar with individual state laws on what landlords are allowed to charge for prorated amounts? I'm determined to fight this bullshit.
