Depending on how many sq.ft. you need. If you're from the northeast, you're probably used to tiny places for that amount!

How close to the city do you want to be? Do you need to be near a specific place, such as work, or schools?

Email me!

Congratulations on your move to the Charlotte area. I moved here eight years ago with my family and we have no regrets. Finding a rental place in Charlotte can be a daunting task. You are going to want ot give yourself at least 30 to 60 days to find a rental place.

One thing to consider is how far of a drive do you want for you and your son to go to therapy. What do you consider an acceptable drive time? That can and will play a factor in places you look at. Another is going to be how much of a renatl amount you want to spend. Are there any special things you are lookign for in a place? Have you located an ABA thereapist that you might be using when you get to Charlotte?

Most realtors can help you locate a place for rent. The seller pays for the services to the Realtor when you find a home to rent. Other avenues are to go through trulia website and search rentals there and contact the agent or managemetn company directly.

most are probably goign to charge you a fee to check your credit and they will call it an applciation fee. it can and does vary depending on the palce. Then the normal fee would be the first month rent up front and one month rent as a security deposit as well..

If you would liek soem help guiding through the process please feel free to give me a call at 704-519-7895 or e-mail me at and I will walk you through and help you out the best I can. I just had another family from Australia move ehre a few months ago as well so i am familair with the process and differenced between there and here.

Is the Dilworth area your choice because of the school assignment or the location? I see several in the area but more options in neighboring areas such as Cotswold. What is your target price range? Do you have school aged children you are accommodating in your search?

Call me if I can be of further assistance and send you a link to your options.

Blessings upon you...

Bill Ahls answered:
For the most part they are ALL flexible as long as you're honest on your rental application. With the high percentage of foreclosures and short sales over the previous 4 years, filtering out credit "issues" would eliminate over half of the rental pool and (for the most part) they just cannot afford to do that. Forget your credit issues and just apply (honestly) to wherever you want to live and, if your income supports the debt, you'll live where you want to. ... more

Sharon Lewis answered:
I would check the tax records, make sure that the homeowner is current on their taxes. Try to rent from something listed by a realtor, it tends to be more 'legit' and that realtor knows if the homeowner is current on their taxes and can give you some feedback on the homeowner. I would be concerned with someone who would not want to meet you face to face and only asks that you mail the that.
There are a lot of rental scams going on. Also, try to lock in your rental rate to two years. Rentals in the country are at a premium in many areas . Look around the area, talk to neighbors.

Don Tepper answered:
Evict them.

They're in violation of the lease and you've been in communication with them to try to resolve the matter.

You don't say what else you've allowed "outside of the contract."

You shouldn't have let the move in without payment of those two months. However . . .

The point is that they're in violation of the lease. Check with a lawyer if you choose. Then begin the eviction process.
