3 Questions to Ask Before Signing an Apartment Rental Lease, Ashland, Kentucky

Finding the right apartment rental is exciting, and you’re likely ready to sign the lease and start moving in. But before you put your name on the dotted line, it’s crucial to ask the landlord a few questions to ensure you truly understand the contract terms and what will be expected of you. The following are three essential questions you should ask before signing a lease.

What to Ask Before Signing an Apartment Rental Lease

1. Which Utilities Will I Be Paying For?

Under the terms of some leases, utilities like hot water and heat are covered by the landlord. With others, the tenant is completely responsible for setting up accounts with utility companies and paying the bills. Know what you need to pay for, since the monthly bills will affect the overall apartment costs.

2. Do I Need to Get Renters Insurance?

apartment rentalRenters insurance will cover all your personal property inside the apartment and protect you from liability in the event a guest is injured while they’re visiting. Some landlords require their tenants to purchase a policy, whereas others don’t. Find out if you’ll need to have coverage when you move in.

3. Who Do I Call if I Have an Emergency?

Even in the most well-maintained apartments, incidents like backed-up pipes can happen. Find out who you should contact if there’s an emergency in the middle of the night or on the weekend. Many landlords partner with maintenance companies that are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you are expected to wait until normal business hours, however, you might want to look for another place to live.
