Understanding the urban rental market is crucial if we are to grasp the multiple ways in which coartados were forced to react to new, damaging scenarios. As new changes to the urban rental market came into existence, and as their impact on the slavery-based service sector expanded, coartados found themselves often trapped in what can only be described as a buyer-to-buyer dynamic, which forced them to go from one master to another, almost always against the wishes of those who owned them, and frequently against their own wishes too.
