READ YOUR LEASE BEFORE SIGNING

It’s important to know what you’re getting into before you sign that lease. Renters should always read their lease carefully before signing it so that they know exactly what it covers and what they're responsible for paying according to the terms of their agreement with their landlord.


DO I HAVE TO PAY A DAMAGE DEPOSIT?

Many landlords require a deposit of half a month’s rent. This deposit will cover any damages that occur during your tenancy and/or cleaning costs when the landlord wants the unit back after the lease expires.


PLAN A BUDGET FOR MOVING COST

Don’t forget to budget for moving costs. If you don’t have much money saved up for your move, expect to pay $200-$300 per person for moving costs including insurance, transportation, storage, and cleaning supplies (if needed).


WHEN DO I PAY MY RENT?

Rent is paid on the first of every month. Please remember to pay your rent on time.


WHAT IF I DON’T PAY MY RENT?

Any late rent payment will result in a penalty fee. You can get a Notice of Termination after three days, which leads to eviction. It will also create a bad rental history on your record and make it hard to rent a home in the future.

WHAT IS A CONDITION REPORT?

The condition report is an essential step in renting a home. Best practice in protecting yourself as a renter; you should always get a copy of the condition report and attach it with your lease. Your landlord should do a condition report when you pick up your keys. The report describes the condition of the home before you move in. Make sure you list any damages you find. The condition report is a great tool to use as evidence should a damage claim be made after moving out of the home.
