Questions to ask?
I'm going to look at a very lovely apartment on Friday and I'm very excited! But, I want to be prepared and I want to ask lots of questions. 1. What, if any, utilities are included in the rent? 2. How much do utilities run for this apartment per month? 3. What's the parking situation? 4. Does each unit have control over heating/cooling? Are window unit A/C's permissible? Space Heaters? 5. When is rent due? 6. Is there security for the building? 7. Is there a specific emergency number to call in case of flooding in the apartment or electrical problems? 8. Is paint allowed? Hanging shelves? Changing fixtures such as lights or cabinet knobs? 9. In the event of insufficient credit, is having a cosigner possible? 10. What are the other residents like? Is this a good building to meet new people? Is there a common area? 11. Is the apartment internet/cable ready? Are those features optional or required? Any thoughts, anything to add?
