Moving into Your Rental: 1

Posted in Apartments, Renting on 22.11.09

landlord 3Whether you are moving into an apartment in a complex, a rental house, or a private apartment, such as one that exists in a private, residential home, you have to realize: you have rights, especially if utilities such as heat, hot water, et cetera, is covered in your monthly rent.

There are also some things you need to do when you first move into your new home — and even before you move in, as a matter of fact. Let’s talk about that first.

You need to make sure that you are fully aware of all the codes, rights, and rules of tenancy in your area. You need to know what is expected of you as a tenant, and you also need to know what is expected of your landlord — again, especially if he or she maintains that heat, hot water, and electricity are included in your rent. Otherwise, it will be far too easy for your landlord to pull one over on you.
