Renting an apartment should be relatively easy, right? Well, yes and no. While overall renting an apartment is not complicated, there are some things you ought to know about the lease agreement before you sign it. We shall review these things in this article.
In the first place, your lease agreement will spell out all of the terms and conditions set forth by the complex management. This lease is legally binding. Once you sign it you are obligated to abide by these terms and conditions. So if there are things you do not like about it, these things are best discovered BEFORE you sign it. READ IT THOROUGHLY FIRST. Make sure everything is clear and that you will like living under the terms it spells out. Finding these things out after you sign the lease is too late. If you are unsure of anything, ask questions of the manager and/or have a lawyer look it over. Do not sign it until you are 100% satisfied with the complex rules and terms.
Sections 1 through 5 generally lay out all of the financial terms of your apartment rental lease agreement. It should include how much to pay, when to pay it and for what period of time the lease entails. If there is a security deposit required the applicable terms for that will be laid out here as well. Any reasons the complex owner might have for keeping your security deposit are stated here too. Additionally you will also have any terms regarding late rental payments and utility payments; again, how much to pay, when to pay it, etc. You can say these are the most important parts of the rental lease agreement because a lot of money is typically involved.
Most frequently the next couple of sections of your apartment rental lease agreements have to do with occupancy; both human and animals. These sections are critical for you to pay attention to. If there are any restrictions on human or pet occupancy, you want to know NOW before you sign the lease. If you have pets and the complex you are looking at does not allow pets at all, you should move elsewhere. Otherwise you will have to give them up and that will be difficult for everybody. Likewise; if you enjoy having guests stay with you periodically, you will want to know if this complex has any restrictions on that. Otherwise you may find yourself seriously inhibited as to being able to entertain guests in your home. Again, you may want to move elsewhere that does not have all these restrictions.
These are just a few of the parts of a lease you ought to know about. There are MANY more. The general rule of thumb; as we stated before is, READ THE LEASE before you sign it. This can save you a lot of aggravation later on. Rules will vary from one apartment complex to another. It may behoove you to take the time to seek out one that is more permissive. In general; the nicer the complex is, the more rules it is likely to have. Therefore, choose wisely.
