What Renters Need To Know

for-rentThis article from The Daily Sun News outlines a few important facts that every renter really needs to know. First thing first, read the ENTIRE lease – don’t just skim it. It is a legally binding document and you need to be sure you understand all of it, and if you don’t, ask questions to the landlord or property manager. It is your right to understand everything.
Investing in renters insurance is also a great idea to keep your personal items safe in case of any type of disaster that is out of your control.
The last suggestion in the article reminds tenants to do a thorough inspection upon move in. Most landlords or property managers will do a walk through with you but it is also a good idea to take photographs and let them know if you see any other issues in the first few days after move in, that may have been missed in the inspection.
It is also a good idea to be clear on the date your rent is due each month and how your landlord wants payment. Overall, it is important to ask any questions you might have so that you are clear on the expectations when you move in, so no surprises come up down the road.
