My list would be slightly different.
1) This Building is in Foreclosure is NOT necessarily something that a tenant needs to know IF they have a lease. The lease will be honored by the bank, mortgagor or whoever else takes title and if the property is a multi-unit building, having TENANTS is a GOOD THING!
2) You should complain more is also NOT something I would encourage. Complaining PROPERLY is MORE effective * in writing * preferably in writing or via e-mail WITH your e-mail and phone contact information. Answering the phone or e-mail from service personnel AND allow entry are ALSO more important IMHO.
3) I AGREE that there is MORE to negotiate than the rent * the # of occupants, PETS * what kind and how many, security deposit amount AND length of lease.
4) I AGREE that the BUILDING neighbors are NOT the landlord's responsibility; however, the residents of the landlord's building SHOULD BE their concern and responsibility. A resident who advises me of the actions of their building neighbor is an asset in assisting me in managing my properties.....I say THANK YOU and may request that they call the police OR contact them directly (for noise complaints) and THEN advise me of the date and time of the annoyance...then I will handle as appropriate!
5) In VIRGINIA, the landlord under a common law lease has MORE RIGHTS than their tenants DEPENDING on their lease agreement. Yahoo's! example of a SF tenant is "Pacific Heights" extreme; however, landlords NEED to know AS MUCH AS if NOT MORE than their tenants and how to "counter" would-be LEGAL diversions during the term of the tenancy....
