Fire extinguisher Should be installed in every property but is not required. Usally apartment buildings have a near by water Hydrant. Each state has different building codes and regulations .

There are many companies that will handle the entire eviction process for you. If you are unfamiliar with the process I highly recommend that you one of these companies so that you handle the evictioin by the book and don't open yourself up to further liability. If you need a recommendation to a company that I have described please email me and I would be happy to forward you their contact info.

Steve Mikrut answered:
It really depends on the property manager, but typically what they'll do is do a walk through of your home and any repairs that need to be made (that were not existing before you lived there) are noted and repaired. You will get a copy of the punch-list and the amount they paid to do the repairs and that amount is taken from your deposit with the difference being credited back to you. Your lease should outline this for you and the process varies depending on your contract.

The requirements for locking up a rental differ from property to property depending on the property management company and/or the landlord's requirements.

We can help explain the details of each property you are interested in so you know what to expect ahead of time.

We offer a free rental search. If you would like to get a feel for what is out there in your price range with out having to weed out all of the unavailable properties. You can start your free rental search here: http://tinyurl.com/ahtzp4x

Landlords want to see great credit scores, no defaults judgements, or late payments. If any of these appear on your credit report, be sure to have an explaination of each as many times the landlord will ask for this. Good luck with your rental search! ... more

Delaine Campbell answered:
A pro is definitely having the manager there for immediate concerns and if you establish the right rapport you may be able to compromise on fees and charges in the future. The con would have to depend on your lifestyle. Its the same idea as having the CEO of your company in the cubicle adjacent to you or having your parents home while you try having a get together with friends. They'll have constant awareness of the way you live. ... more

Nakia Woodson answered:
Hello,

It depends. If you have a 12 month lease, usually no. You are locked in at that rate for 12 months. Many landlords have a clause, that if you go month to month, at the end of your lease, rents will increase and they indicate the dollar amount. If your lease is longer than 12 months, if the landlord plans to increase the rent at the 13 month mark, it must be disclosed.

Thanks,

Michael Wynn answered:
There could be several reasons why.

Property managers will be looking at the following:

1) Rental history (no evictions or collections)
2) Credit (no collections on a utility bill....)
3) Background check
4) Income (should be 2.5-3 times the rent)

As an agent who helps about 200 people a year find rentals in Las Vegas, I personally don't want to deal with people who stack up applications.

It should be first come, first serve which is how most places operate out here.

Otherwise, what is to stop the property manager from collecting multiple application fees?

I would try to find out why you were denied.

It could be that there is something you are not aware of on your credit / background or it could be for reasons they just aren't telling you.

Either way, it's worth finding out.

Steven Goldman, CRS, Realtor answered:
Call your favorite Realtor to get you inside. You may have to pay the Realtor yourself. At least you know you are getting representation and have someone looking out for your financial safety.

Do not send or give any money to anyone without meeting the owner or an authorized management company. Your Realtor can assist you in not getting scammed by people acting as the owner and taking your money. Sometimes these bad people rent the property to many people at the same time an then disappear.

You decide if it is worth a few hundred dollars to get the protection of an expert in the field.
Will it cost you a few dollars, yes. Look at the alternative.

Your Realtor can also assist you in purchasing a property of your own and having a payment lower than the rent you will be paying. WHAT A DEAL !!!

Good luck and happy hunting.

John Morrison answered:
The Denial may not have had anything to do with you. It may just have been that the landlord got an application from someone who had a better credit score, and excellent income instead of good income. You did not mention convictions which is another major criterion landlords look at in screening tenants. If you have had none of those, I would keep looking. There will be a house out there for you. ... more

They can include any provisions, but you have a right to accept or object. When you sign is binding contract. Also if you already sign you can try counter offer on that provision. If you are working with agent ask your agent to do that for you, if not and want somebody to represent you -find attorney or hire the agent.

Demetria Kalfas-Gordon answered:
What types of people living there is a hard question to answer. How exactly do you define types of people without getting into trouble about fair housing standards? I believe that is more the reason people won't answer - it is not a secret but just not something that is normally disclosed as it can't really be defined without sounding biased towards or against someone. As long as they pay their rent, don't disturb the neighbors and take care of the property, a landlord doesn't care what "type" of people live in their units.
