The Ultimate Condo Renting Guide

The Ultimate Condo Renting GuideCondominiums provide the perfect solution for short and long-term rentals. If you’re not ready to buy, or you want to explore your options first, you are in good company. However, renting a condo is much different than renting an apartment. In order to ensure you make the right decision, equip yourself with a Connecticut Renters Insurance policy and consider the following tips.

When renting from a condo owner…

Enlighten Me states that when you rent a condo from the owner, you are signing a lease with the owner of the condo unit. If you have any problems with the home, like repairs which need to be performed, you will need to talk with the condo unit’s owner. The HOA will only assist with repairs if the damage is located on the public areas of the unit.

Keep in mind that renters of a unit are often not permitted to join HOA meetings. If there is an issue, elect a neighbor or the owner of the condo to speak up on your behalf.

Read the lease carefully.

The lease should be thorough and include information regarding security deposits, lease terms, HOA obligations, upkeep and maintenance expectations, and regulations of the community. Be sure to understand the terms completely before signing on the dotted line.

Understand the rules and regulations.

Oftentimes, condos place a lot of restrictions on their tenants. From parking spaces and noise levels to fees, there are a lot of requirements that renters face. Bear in mind that these regulations are taken seriously, and repeated offenses can result in hefty fines, angry neighbors, and even legal action if the HOA or owner chooses to bring suit against you for numerous violations.
