Tips for Tenants

Common Sense Tips for For Common Sense TENANTS

  • Take interior and exterior pictures of the premises prior to the tenant moving in.
  • If there are conditions that need repair, even if you do not ask the landlord to make those repairs, document the existence of anything that is less than perfect. When it is time to move out, you won’t be charged for damage that was not caused by you.
  • Make sure that you get receipts for rent payments, even if you are paying by personal check. If your check is mailed, have some proof of mailing. You can purchase a certificate of mailing for roughly $1, and signatures are not required.
  • Understand all of your rental / lease agreements, and be familiar with your lease terms. For example, if the lease states you are not allowed to have pets without prior written consent from the landlord, and your landlord orally agrees that you may have a dog, make sure that you confirm that permission in writing – just as your lease demands.
  • Try to be considerate to your neighbors and your landlord.
  • Pay your rent on time. You will always need a home.
  • Before you communicate with your landlord regarding any existing disputes, first read your lease again, and secondly, refrain from writing to your landlord regarding any ongoing dispute without first consulting with a tenant’s rights attorney.
