New to apartment hunting? It is understandable to panic when you’re on a tour and feel like you don’t know the proper things to ask or if you have asked enough. What’s even scarier is signing the lease without knowing the ins and outs of your new place. Have no fear, here are the top questions to ask the complex you’re looking at —
What are the lease terms? 1 Year? 6 Months?
Are there income requirements? (Do you need to make 2x the rent? 3x the rent?)
Does the owner allow a cosigner? (In case you don’t meet the income requirements)
Laundry in the unit? In the building?
Have they received a lot of applications?
Who covers utilities?
How much storage space/closets does it have?
