It really depends on the needs of the people getting the security system. I know there is quite a range of options available when it comes to security systems. I suggest reading reviews of a few different security companies and getting it narrowed down to one you'd like to talk to. The security company will be able to give you a run down of what security options might be good for you and your situation. http://www.ojaialarm.com/systems/... more

All landlords ask for a security deposit to ensure that the apartment will be yours. If you move in your deposit goes towards any damages if you break lease & suddenly disappear.

What some landlords do is they ask for a small deposit upfront if there currently showing the place This small deposit is to hold the landlord for the days hes not showing the place in case you come back 3days later & say I decided im not going to take the place.

I'm also looking for a 2 bdrm or a 1 bdrm with a den (and) or a basement to make into a bdrm apartment or house on Staten Island with washer and dryer hook ups & storage (& hopefully a dishwasher but not a deal breaker). It's just me and my 12 yr old son and I have 2 small 10 lb Miniature Pinches & a cat all in their teens and fully trained and I'm OK with a pet fee. Since I don't have a car I have to be very near a main bus or train line and supermarket. No where ghetto or in the boon docks. I can pay up to $1300/$1350 with all the bells and whistles I'm asking for, $1400 w/bells & whistles and utilities included. But If it doesn't have w/d hook ups or storage I can only pay $1100/$1200.... more
