Renting a Home

How to get started

The first step in looking for a rental is to assess your needs and budget. Determine how many bedrooms and bathrooms you need, what amenities you want (in-unit laundry, bathtub, parking, etc), and what your monthly rent budget is.

When you visit properties, take note of their condition, location, and any other factors that are important to you. This initial research will help you find the right rental for you and start the process off on the right foot.

Some other things to consider

  • Credit

    A good credit score is essential when looking for a rental property as landlords often use it as a criterion for determining tenant eligibility. There are several free sources where you can obtain a free credit score.

  • References

    Gather positive references from previous landlords, employers, and acquaintances to increase your chances of finding a rental.

  • Deposits

    Be prepared to pay initial deposits and understand the terms and conditions of their return. Know your rights and responsibilities when it comes to rental deposits.

  • Utilities

    Some landlords include utilities such as electricity, water, gas, and internet/cable in rent, while others require tenants to set up their own accounts. Clarify this before signing a lease to avoid unexpected expenses.
