you can ask them for copies of their Income Tax for the last two years.
You might also visit their business to see if it is viable.
Also, contact the BBB, and ask for references.

Good luck and God bless ... more

One way you can do it is to ask for the last two years of their tax returns. You could also ask to see a few months of bank statements.

I don't work with a lot of rentals, but I would say, or sure, to make sure that you request any items you want to be done up front. For example, if you want the unit totally painted, ask. Bargain it. Ask for a professional clean-up or cleaning (more than "broom clean"). You might ask for the door locks to be changed, etc. If you are renting a house (as compared to a condo/apartment), make sure you have negotiated who pays for what....i.e., snowplowing, landscaping, mowing lawn, etc. Landlords usually pay water/sewer, but you are responsible for other utilities, but the snowplow and landscaping/lawn are negotiable. Also, you might want to check the area to see "average" rental costs, and negotiate from that position. There is competition out there, and you might be able to negotiate a few hundred off the asking rental price. Remember, you can ask for anything....and landlord/seller can refuse anything. Always worth asking. ... more

If you have evidence of an unauthorized intruder our recommendation is to report it to the police ASAP and consider rekeying your doors.

After the fact..........consider notifying your landlord in witing with a copy of the police report. This approcah should serve to protect your interests, both if it is the landlord and if it is not. In any event, they should get the message that you are not going to tolerate this violation of privacy. ... more

Juan - The average rent in South Euclid is between $950 and $1200 per month for a 3 bedroom single family home. Are you looking for a home to rent in South Euclid? If so, I would be happy to meet with you and show you what is available. I also have 2 homes in Euclid for rent that have been completely remodeled. One is a 2 bedroom for $800/month and the other is $900/month for 3 bedroom. Let me know if I can help.
