:: I think it makes a big difference whether the building is owner occupied.

I think it makes big difference too. In fact, I purposely sought out a building that was owner-occupied to rent. I find that owner occupied buildings tend to be the best cared for and best maintained buildings. Most owners take pride in their building, particularly when it's also the place where they live. And if there is a problem, the owner is right there, to resolve it.

As far as "rules", I think that a certain standard of conduct is expected anywhere, and there are rules (LAWS) for landlords to follow as well. If you really don't like the idea of an owner setting rules in his building ... well ... go and buy your own building, and make up your own rules.

::I have never, and will never by choice live in the same building with a landlord, because no matter what way you look at it, the tenant has rules and the other "tenant" (the landlord) does not.
:: I have heard too many horror stories about making complaints.
