Harris, Reed & Seiferth
Moving into a new rental property is such an exciting process! Sure, it's also super time-consuming and can be pretty demanding, but finally settling in can bring so much joy. I recently made the move from my college house into a full-on adult apartment and I was giddy with anticipation! Anything that came my way from the apartment complex was immediately completed and returned, all the T's crossed and I's dotted – including the lease. It didn't dawn on me until after I had sent it back that I probably should have read it more thoroughly. Luckily, my lease outlined understandable guidelines and didn't have any weird rules or vague statements releasing the complex from responsibility.
Before signing a lease, make sure you know what you're getting yourself into. Your lease is more than just a piece of paper with boring writing on it – it's a legally binding contract! Most leases are pretty straightforward, but once you sign it, you're locked in for the near future.
Here are nine important questions to ask your landlord or leasing office before signing the rental agreement.
