There are a host of reasons why renting a place instead of buying might be a great idea for you (we even dedicated an entire episode to the topic!). But when it comes to renting and entering into a lease agreement with a landlord, you want to make sure that you’re prepared and taking the proper steps to protect yourself. Listen as we cover everything from Wall Street landlords to negotiating leases to the low cost of renters insurance.
- A post over at Rent Cafe explains how some states are more renter friendly.
- Landlordology has a great resource for figuring out the laws specific to your state.
- If you feel that you’ve been illegally discriminated against, file a complaint with HUD.
- Make sure you have renters insurance! We’re huge fans of with Policygenius.
