Questions you should ask before you rent a property

It’s important to ask the right questions to help you decide if you can afford the property and want to rent it. It’s good practice to ask landlords questions about the property to clarify any doubt you have and to prevent future misunderstandings. Here are some example questions to ask us:

  • How much is the rent and safety deposit (if applicable)?
  • How long is the lease?
  • Can the lease be renewed?
  • Is the rental furnished or unfurnished?
  • What utilities are included? If they’re not included, how much do the utilities typically cost?
  • Is parking included? If so, how many spaces are there? Is there guest parking?
  • Is additional storage like a bike rack or a locker included in the rent?
  • Are there laundry facilities in the unit, or are there common laundry facilities?
  • What amenities are included in the rent?
  • Where does the trash go?
  • Is there a back patio or deck? What are the rules?
  • Are pets allowed? If so, are there quantity, size or breed restrictions or pet fees?
Renting a home comes with many benefits including no maintenance costs, repair bills, real estate taxes, or long-term commitment, more flexibility, more free time, and it’s cheaper than owning. BLD Homes provides quality rentals to make your life simpler.
