02-27-18 The landlord autofill game…service dogs, rats, and background checks

I came across an article from the UK where the author sized up how UK residents were feeling toward landlords based on the Google auto-fill results.  Since the author was in the UK and using the UK version of Google I thought I'd give a run at seeing how the results differed using my version of Google.

To make it a bit easier to skim I've underlined where the US results differed from the UK results.

From the above we can garner that tenants in the US are much more worried about pests...and who is responsible for dealing with them.  Also, it would seem that US tenants are also much more worried about their ability to pass the landlord's judgement of whether they will be a suitable tenant upon application.  

Did you see anything that stuck out to you as being particularly interesting or surprising in the results?  If so, reply and let me know what.
