LEASING TIPS - In a competitive rental market, bring a completed rental application, including all necessary documentation and a check for security deposit when visiting the property. - Ask if the landlord offers any favorable terms for your employer. - Come prepared with enough funds to pay for the first month of rent, plus the deposit amount. Deposit requirements vary but can be equal to one-month rent (or more). - Be extra diligent when reviewing the lease from a private landlord. Unlike large apartment complexes, which generally have well established agreements, private landlords may be less experienced and may include unfavorable or unrealistic clauses. - Ask a family member, friend, or colleague to come along with you on the move-in inspection to have an extra set of eyes.
