Question about renting

You may not own the apartment, but that doesn’t mean the community employees should be able to enter your home anytime they please. In most instances the apartment should give you notice prior to entering your apartment, and legit complexes will be up front about what circumstances warrant them entering an apartment. You may also want to consider safety here. For example, does the landlord require background checks for those employees who have access to your apartment?

Does your rent include access to one or more parking spaces? Are the reserved, or in an open lot? If parking isn’t provided, what are the alternatives? Street parking? Nearby garages? Be wary of being told street parking is easy to find. It could be tougher than advertised, so you should check it out for yourself.

In many instances you’ll have to give notice 30-60 days in advance of moving out. If you don’t give the required notice, your lease could automatically renew or you could lose your security deposit.

Putting your own personal touch on an apartment can end up costing you at some complexes, while others don’t mind as long as you put things back the way they were when you moved in.

This is important for two reasons: 1) If improvements are being made then you may have to deal with construction, and 2) updates could add to the amenities, enjoyment and appeal of your apartment.
