Why Jerusalem renters are wary ...

3 posts in this topic

It is a very unusual situation for people renting in Jerusalem at the moment.Seems as though they might lose the place they are renting when the Messiah makes his return.And it also seems as though many people believe this will happen soon.

Many Jerusalem residents believe not only that the Messiah will return, but that his arrival is imminent – so imminent they have taken legal precautions to ensure they can return to Jerusalem immediately upon his return.

In apartment contracts around the city, there are clauses stipulating what will happen to the apartment if or when theJewish Messiah, or;mashiach,;comes. The owners, generally religious Jews living abroad, are concerned that he will arrive, build a third temple, and turn Israel into paradise – and they will be stuck waiting for their apartment tenants' contracts to run out before they can move back.

I wouldn't mind a clause like that if my landlord/lady wanted to add it to the lease agreement. But I'd insist in return that s/he reduce the rent by a small amount: having to move out would be a major inconvenience for me but very unlikely in my opinion; that balances with the certainty of a minor inconvenience for the landlord in the form of reduced rent.
