Be sure to check the apartment out in person before putting down a deposit or agreeing to any type of lease or contract. This will prevent any surprises before arriving to live and could also prevent the renter from making a large mistake. It’s important to check the credentials of the landlord as well if the rental property wanted isn’t in a large building or complex with other units. Don’t give out information about your personal banking accounts or social security numbers before meeting with the landlord in person and verifying that the information given will only be used for rental purposes.
Month-to-month apartment rentals are often hard to find because this can be a hassle for the landlord. However, if you’re not sure how long you will be staying, they may be necessary. For those who are interested in an apartment that doesn’t rent month to month, it’s possible to ask the association or landlord if a three-month contract or a six-month lease would be possible, and to explain the work situation as well. If there are several empty units or if there is a need to get the place rented, this may work.
