    Does a furnished apartment include silverware, plates, etc?

    Does an apartment or house that is advertised as furnished usually include silverware, plates, cups, and things of the like?

    Not usually, but I have heard of it. Ask, but don't feel offended if it gets a laugh.

    Sometimes. I stayed in a temporary apartment for a month that had all that stuff.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    For me each bike counts as a seat. The silverware, I use my mess kit (from touring).

    You're a student. You don't need any cutlery.

    A furnished apartment is the equivalent of a motel room, except you provide your own sheets/towels. Depending on the rental unit you are looking at, staying in a motel that has weekly rates maybe cheaper...plus the motel generally includes housekeeping.

    Your username always reminds me of that awesome scene from The Thing where they're all tied to the couch while Mac tests their blood, but your actual posts are just sort of stupid, usually.

    Actually there is a good reason I posted this thread. I am currently living in a somewhat unusual situation during school: three people lease a house, but one of them is the son of the landlord; he grew up in this house. He is graduating this year though, while I am graduating next year. We're expecting him to take a lot of the stuff with him to his new apartment where he chooses to go to law school, so my other roommate and I want to have an idea of what we can count on being here.

    Read your lease and then ask your landlord to answer any questions that may arise.

    By the way, Krispistofferson, are you familiar with the internet term "troll"?

    I rarely use such a term, but for some reason it jumps to mind when I read your rude and baiting replies such as this one. I'm glad I stopped being a moderator some time ago, else I would have banned your ass from foo long ago. Ass.

    Edit: By the way, here's an illuminating concept: if there's a thread you don't expect to like, simply don't click on it.

    ask your moving roommate what he plans to loeave. I rent apartments - semi-furnished - to college students. We have some beds, couches, chairs, desks, tables... but, students have left plates, pots & pans, rugs, silverware, glassware, etc., which we clean & leave there. One kid left a pool table - go figure!
    As with mud, life, too, slides by.

    No, unless it's a residency hotel like Extended Stay America or such. Then it's abut $189 a week, and you get maid service and cable and phone, and often internet provided.

    Seems kinda steep, but then again if you factor in that there are no utility payments on top of apartment rent, and add the cleaning service, it's comes close to being a wash. No security deposit or lease agreement to worry about either.

    If I ever become a single man again, this is the route I'd probably take.
