Moving into new apartmentBecause of the economic slump that America is still clawing its way out of, more and more people are turning to renting. This has made for a tight rental market and learning to be a better tenant may help you find a good apartment. Try these tips to become a good tenant in the eyes of landlords.

Review the Lease

Before signing a lease, you should familiarize yourself with all of the terms and conditions. It’s important to know the landlord’s expectations when it comes to maintenance, noise complaints, pets and remodeling. For instance, if you love painting the walls bright colors, you wouldn’t want to move into an apartment that doesn’t allow painting. If you’re caught violating the lease, it may result in fines or even eviction, depending on the offense.

Pay Rent Promptly

Paying rent on time every month is the easiest way to prove that you’re a shining tenant. Landlords are partial to financially responsible and dependable tenants; after all, they have a business to run. And if you prove yourself to be favorable tenant, the landlord may be more obliged to arrange faster repairs and/or offer upgrades.

Be Considerate

Being that most rental units are surrounded by other units, keeping quiet and clean is a must in rental communities. Sharing space with someone who throws parties that last all night is not an easy thing when you have to wake up early to go to work. Just like you don’t want to be disturbed, you should strive to be as considerate as you want your neighbors to be.

Take Responsibility

While guests are generally accepted on most properties, you may be liable for any damage they cause. The same goes for any injuries they sustain in your rental unit. Whether they accidentally shatter a window or trip down a flight of stairs, you may have to assume responsibility for the resulting bills. This is another reason that renters insurance is so important.
