You have found a place to live – congratulations!
But there’s still a lot to do before you have a new home. Such as:
- Read and understand your lease before you sign it. Your lease is a legal agreement between you and your landlord about your apartment. Your lease and Indiana law determine your rights when you are renting from a private landlord.
- Will you have a roommate? Learn the pros and cons of a sharing a place.
- Why you should complete a move-in sheet with the property manager—and take lots of photos.
- Arrange for any utilities you will be paying for, and pay a utility deposit.
