It all depends on what the market value is in that area. Normally rent prices always increase following the end of the lease, but the amount depends on what that comparable properties are also pricing their rentals at in your surrounding area.

My suggestion would be to use a rent comparison report before resigning to make sure you aren't paying a significantly higher amount then you should. It is a really important tool that can save you lots of money in the long run.

Check it out and hopefully that will help you make your decision.

If you are not alone living there and he has no evidence to prove that you are the one who cause the stain then i think all tenants should pay.

Malcolm Lawson answered:
If you are looking to buy the first step is to talk to a lender. They can work with you on your credit to try and improve and talk to you more about if you would qualify for a loan and how much for. I have seen people who have bad credit but after working with a lender for a few months are able to improve it to the point where they qualify for a loan.

If you were to buy, what price range do you think you would be looking for?

You'll need to contact your landlord or property management company about that. Nobody here is involved with your lease agreement.

I forgot to add that, I do not believe it will be a problem with my neighbors, all of them rent their basements out (without a license i believe). One house must have 10 people living there, the others just rent out to single people. I want to ensure i am legal and in compliance with all rules and regulations though. ... more
