Had a month of overlap between old and new lease, took our time moving but turned up at our previous place to discover the landlord had re-leased it and was insisting on billing both us and the new tenant for three weeks. We had a reasonable relationship until that point.

Well, I have a "nice landlady" story ( just to balance things out).
She wasn't going to be home when we moved out, so she checked the electric meter the night before and said don't worry about the rest. :D

What were you paying per KwH?

If you were paying more than EDC rate, she had already ripped you off enough, LOL

Probably, but she knocked $20 off the original asking price of the rent, so I figured we came out square.
If I'm ok with the deal and she's ok, then there's no rip-off IMO.

Hello, what is the cheapest that you can expect at Sihanoukville for an apartment with security (guards + camera).

Thank you.

Thank you.
Don't rely too much on security. They will either be asleep or missing when you are robbed if they don't do the robbing themselves. The cameras will not be functioning / recording either - they are just for show. I know guys paying $80 / month for new rooms with a small cooking area and shared balcony / walkway. If you want a separate sleeping and living room just double the price. Expect to pay around $3 or $4 per m2 for a new build place in downtown.
