But what if the people you're going to be living with aren't so, erm, accommodating?1The landlord banned tenants from cooking meat or watching TV after 9:30pm
Well if you thought your roommate obsessing over who used their cutlery was bad, then spare a thought for the tenant who has moved in with this demanding landlord.
Earlier this week, a picture of an outrageous advert was posted on Reddit where people were quick to slam the unreasonable demands.
If being charged £945 for a single room in the small town of North Manchester, Indiana, wasn't bad enough, the landlord instructed his future tenant that TV after 9:30pm wouldn't be tolerated.
And as they're a vegan, there's also a total ban on meat in the home.

As well as the TV ban, the tenant also isn't allowed to listen to music in the evenings and has to be pay an extra $75 [£54] a month if they want wifi too.
The landlord continued: "Weekly room inspections will be done to make sure you are being clean."
And while it's pretty commonplace not to be allowed pets, the landlord has practically banned the tenant from having guests too.
They added: "If you must have company they must stay in your room at all times! They will not be allowed to use the bathroom, this is my house - not yours. You must follow all rules!"
Needless to say, the advert left members of the Reddit forum stunned.
One replied: "I’m sad for anyone who is desperate enough to live here."
Another added: "All that for only $1,300 a month. Oh my God, where do you sign up?!"

Cases of anorexia among teens aged 13 to 16 jumped 65% during first wave of pandemic, study finds
Researchers from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, gathered data from six major pediatric hospitals across the country that have tertiary-level eating disorder treatment programs.
They found that among teens aged 13 to 16, new monthly anorexia diagnosis jumped from 24.5 per month on average to 40.6 on average - a 65 percent jump - during the first wave of the pandemic.
Hospitalizations for anorexia sharply increased as well, from 7.5 per month to 20 per month, a 166 percent increase.
Cases of anorexia jumped by 65% during the first wave of the Covid pandemic after remaining stready for around five years before the virus arrived
Hospitalizations related to anorexia spiked as well, jumping a staggering 166% during the early months of Covid
Researchers also found that cases were more often and more severe in places that were harder struck by the pandemic early on.
The research team, who published their findings Tuesday in JAMA Network Open, gathered medical records from nearly 1,900 Canadian teens who were diagnosed with anorexia between January 1, 2015 and November 30, 2020.
Those included in the study were between ages 13 and 16.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, rates of anorexia diagnosis were consistent, with little change month to month and no significant upward or downward trends.

After an initial decline of anorexia cases right at the start of the pandemic, a trend many conditions saw early on as many were fearful to seek out medical treatment, cases quickly spiked.
During the pandemic period of the study, from March 2020 to November 2020, cases rapidly increased nationwide.
Researchers also found the trend in both anorexia nervosa cases, and atypical anorexia cases - when a person suffers from the same dietary issues the come with the condition but do not suffer from the same low weight levels.
Those who were treated for anorexia were also more likely to have bradycardia - a condition where a person's heart beats abnormally slow, and is usually a side effect of the eating disorder.
The largest increase in cases was detected in the Ontario and Quebec provinces, which also suffered the highest case surges during the first wave of the pandemic.
A hospital included in the study from British Columbia also showed no upward trend in anorexia diagnosis, the only of the six to not suffer a surge in cases of the eating disorder.
The mental health of teenagers became a major problem during the pandemic, and one that health officials will have to deal with long term.
Social isolation and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic caused a surge in cases of anxiety and depression among teenagers.
These issues, combined with teens wanting to feel like they had 'more control' over their lives during a time of uncertainty may have contributed to the increase.
Other experts have also noted that parents forced to spend more time with their children during the pandemic do to virtual work and school environments may have detected these issues when they would have previously gone unreported.Read more:
