Not many tips to be aware of.

We use standard 'Calif. Association of Realtor' forms which protect both the landlord and the tenant.
Make sure your deposit is no more than two months rent.
We also use a 5 page walk through and disclose all seen defects.
Home should be cleaned (by others) when you move in and cleaned (by you) when you move out.

Make sure they are using standard forms.

Hope that helps,

If the rent is too good to be true, be suspicious about it.
