If you are
looking for your first apartment and feel unsure about what to know
when signing a lease, here are a few tips to help. Be sure to
thoroughly examine the apartment and look for pre-existing damage
before signing on the dotted line. You do not want to be charged for
these damages when you move out.
Before signing a
lease for University
of Wisconsin Madison apartments, find out who
is responsible for services that are provided to tenants. For
example, ask if utilities are included in the rent. Find out who pays
for pest control, lawn maintenance, and snow removal. If repairs are
needed in the future, find out if you will be responsible for paying
them. In some cases, a dollar threshold often exists over which the
landlord will pay for repairs.
Something else to
consider when signing a lease for University of Wisconsin Madison
apartments is parking. In some areas, space is tight. You may not be
entitled to a parking space close to your apartment. Tenants only
have access to street parking. Find out the details on parking,
especially when living in an area that receives a lot of snow.
Ask how the lease
can be terminated. Find out how many month’s notice needs to be
provided if automatic reductions will be taken out of the security
deposit, and about cleaning requirements.
