Renters InsuranceFinding an apartment that you like within your budget — and located in a convenient, safe part of town — isn't always an easy task. You might face competition with other potential renters or find other obstacles during your apartment search. But even with these challenges, you can put your best foot forward and make yourself look like a favorable choice to be a new resident. The following advice is designed to help you prove your responsibility to property managers, which can increase the odds of your rental application being approved.
  • Budget In Advance: Knowing how much you can afford to spend on an apartment each month will save both time, both for you and for the leasing consultants you speak with. You may also be asked to show your last month or two of paychecks as prove of your ability to pay rent in full.
  • Consider Move-In Fees: After signing a lease, you are often required to pay your first month's rent, an application fee, a security deposit and a pet deposit (if applicable). Inquire about these fees before signing anything so you can be sure you have enough money saved up. Any hiccup in paying these fees may be frowned upon by the property manager.
  • Present Yourself Well: Leaving a good first impression can things in your favor. After all, property managers prefer quiet, polite residents over nuisances. Dress in appropriate attire and be courteous when visiting properties.
  • Disclose Information About Pets: Even though bringing a pet along may incur additional expenses, it's always best to be upfront about your furry friends. If you try to hide a pet and it's later discovered, you could face fines or even eviction.
  • Clean Up Your Credit: Look at your credit report and if you see any errors, take action to correct them as soon as possible. The cleaner your report, the better you look as a renter. But even if your credit score isn't sparking, being able to prove that you're actively clearing up any mishaps shows that you're taking responsibility for your finances.
Don't forget about protecting your belongings. Call Lancette Agency, LLC at (651) 264-1230 for more information on Minneapolis renters insurance.
