Real Estate- Buying, Selling & Renting - How to Rent an Apartment
Hello, my name is Penny Smith. I'm a North Carolina real estate broker. Today I'd like to talk to you about how to rent a house or an apartment . There's quite a process that you need to go through. Once you find the property that you want to rent and you know that the price on that property is what you want to pay, then you need to sign a contract . If the owner doesn't already have preprinted contracts then he may require an application as well. And which you will have to provide him with your personal information so that he can do a search to make sure that you are a suitable renter. And then he will have to provide you with a contract. He can buy those contracts at Office Depot or get them from his personal real estate agent. In each case it is his responsibility to provide them. I highly recommend that you have someone to read over that contract to make sure it's in your best interest . Whether that be a real estate attorney or a family member that you think has some experience with contracts. Those are my recommendations on how to rent an apartment or house. Thank you and I hope you have a good day.

During Nelson Mandela's 19 years imprisoned on Robben Island, one particular commanding officer was the most brutal of them all:
"A few days before Badenhorst's departure, I was called to the main office. General Steyn was visiting the island and wanted to know if we had any complaints. Badenhorst was there as I went through a list of demands. When I had finished, Badenhorst spoke to me directly.
He told me he would be leaving the island and added: "I just want to wish you people good luck." I do not know if I looked dumbfounded, but I was amazed. He spoke these words like a human being and showed a side of himself we had never seen before. I thanked him for his good wishes and wished him luck in his endeavours.
I thought about this moment for a long time afterwards. Badenhorst had perhaps been the most callous and barbaric commanding officer we had had on Robben Island. But that day in the office, he had revealed that there was another side to his nature, a side that had been obscured but still existed.
It was a useful reminder that all men, even the most seemingly cold-blooded, have a core of decency and that, if their hearts are touched, they are capable of changing. Ultimately, Badenhorst was not evil; his inhumanity had been foisted upon him by an inhuman system. He behaved like a brute because he was rewarded for brutish behaviour."
