A local real estate agent can help you out! Or you can go to staples or office max they always have them. Most importantly. Be sure to have your renters license if you are a landlord

Every city has it good and bad areas. It's best to check sites like for more detailed information on Salinas. I used to live there for about 6 years and crime was never an issue in my neighborhood. ... more

That's a tough number. Have you checked the room for rent section in craigslist? That's probably your best bet.

A lease is a contract. The pet provision will not be treated any differently than other provisions in the contract. If you sign a no pet lease and get a pet, you would be in breach of the contract. Review the lease to see what remedies the landlord can seek.
Good luck,

We highly suggest that you deal with potential landlords in person and view the apartment or house before you give any money to anyone for any reason. There are too many scams on line, even on legitimate web sites such as Trulia ... more

Hello ,

I got a contract job in an engineering company for a construction project as part of the structural engineers to build a highrise building in SOUTH AFRICA. I am a Building tech specialist, so my accommodation period in JOHANNESBURG,SOUTH AFRICA will be about 4 years, so that's the reason why i am renting out the unit. I do not intend to make profit out of it all i want is
to find a good and clean person to take good care of the place. I`m the owner of the unit and it is furnished but if you want you can make use of your furniture and help keep mine in the storage locker which is situated both in the unit and in the building and these does not attracts any funds.

The monthly rent am requesting for includes all utilities (water, electricity, Internet, cable, 1 parking spots, air conditioning, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, refrigerator, stove, laundry in-suite, washer and dryer) the monthly rent you will be paying includes all this and they will be taken care of as soon as you pay your rent. Everything in this unit is functional and in good working conditions. Once you started staying in the unit and there is any case of any repairs which is as a result of normal
faults like leakages, you will get in touch with me and i will get it fixed, i am in possession of the keys to the apartment which makes hard for you to view the unit. You can move into the unit when you receive the keys but the only problem is that am the only person who has the keys but i hope that we will be able to reach a compromise on this.


The lease is month to month , 6 month or 1yrs and can be renewed ~It can be rented furnished or unfurnished ~ You will have to take good care of my unit Utilities are
included in the rent ~Pets Allowed Any further questions please contact and get back to me for the pics of the unit and the application form. Thank you for your interest and

i`m awaiting your response.

Hi Mike, I am a landlord and I also have a few clients that rent homes for. When I review the rental application and the credit report, I look for signs that the potential renter is of good character and will pay his rent on time. It is important to be truthful with your potential landlord and be sure to explain any circumstances that may have caused your low credit rating. Loss of job, home, foreclosure, medical expense are all legitimate reasons for low credit.
If you are employed and not over your head in debt, the landlord may consider your application if you offer a larger deposit and agree to pay the rent a few months in advance and keep the rent paid in advance. After establishing a good record with the landlord, he may consider reducing the deposit and/or not requiring more than one months advanced rent.
You should also be familiar with your rights as a tenant. Go to DRE.CA.GOV and look for a booklet published by the State of California. I believe it is called "Tenant and Landlord Rights". I give a copy to each of my tenants when they sign their lease.

Good Luck,
Patrick Lampe DRE#00936154

Go on to Craigslist on your area and look for some comparable properties and see what they are charging for rent. Also, call a property manager and get their opinion.

I would suggest you try the regular rental sites: (Rentals Section) (Rentals Section) (Rentals Section)

Between all of those, you will get a very clear picture if you can find what you are looking for. Good luck!

I never heard of such an animal. I do not think that you can get a 30 day extension on your eviction. That would damage the property owners rights and may cause them tofall behind in their payments as it sounds like you are not paying rent now.
Check with an attorney to see if you can do it.
