With the eagerness to move into a new home rental many get the surprise of rooms that flood during some rain, clogged up toilets or poor water supply. Paid rent may even be difficult to refund, or worse non-refundable. The dream home rental may become a nightmare. But if a renter knows what to do during a house rental search, they may actually find a compatible home for rent.

Being organized, serious and professional in doing a home rental search may save tenants from picking the wrong house and dishonest leasing managers.

Renters must ask the landlord the following information:

  • Home rental address and owner’s home address
  • Verification the owner’s passport, drive’s license or state license

The tenant must also complete the rental application: full, old home address, bank account and credit card numbers and a list of references. Some landlords, the legitimate ones, do not accept incomplete requirements. A rejected home rental application can serve as a compilation of the renter’ information. There are also home rental application forms available online on elf-help, community or social organizations.

When looking for a home for rent, advertising that a tenant is looking for a home rental may be helpful too. Home rental search advertising may be as simple as telling friends and families about finding an affordable house for rent or as grand as ads on bulletin boards or public places. The renter must then check early and daily for classified ads, renter magazine and internet listings. Tenant must respond as soon as possible to landlord callbacks.

A renter must be sure that when he signs a long term contract he understands the terms of payments, conditions, rules and regulations. A long term home rental contract is not suitable for home renters that may be relocated anytime for it may cost breaking the contract.

But what is most important is that the renter actually knows what he wants and needs in his home rental. Yet, a renter must also be flexible when it comes to amenities and concessions, not every home rental can offer what is demanded.
