Elle Austin. Apartment. July 12th , 2018.
Older rental units from the sixties and seventies often have loud heating and air conditioning issues, and some of the heat pumps for these units are actually installed in the bedroom closet. These older designs can possibly lead to sleeping difficulty for those who are light sleepers. Many people who rent apartment units with a design like this only spend enough time in the unit to finish out one term of their lease and then they get out as quickly as they can. Beware of apartments that have this design if you have any desire at all for a quiet sleep.
Asking questions from the people I knew was the first thing I did, when I was looking for affordable apartments for rent. This turned out to be one of the most valuable resources available. I was lucky to have friends and family members who were willing to help me find a place that I could afford on my meager waitress income. I have to say that I was shocked when I discovered many cheap, unadvertised apartments for rent in my area.
Also, when talking rental agreement with the landlord, make sure that it includes the rental rate, security deposits, length of occupancy, apartment rules and termination requirements. Ask questions like how many people can stay in the apartments, when is the rent collection, what are included in the rental rates (i.e, water, gas, electricity, etc.) and under what conditions is the deposit refundable. And lastly, don't forget to check for signs of damage before you move in and inform the landlord immediately so you don't have to pay for anything you didn't break.
