What to know when renting a house in Forest Park

We all know that renting a house is a very complicated task, complicated in the fact that your time has to coordinate perfectly with the time of the owner, renting a house is a task of much planning since finding and moving to another house is a process that could take up to 30 days.

When you move to another house, you certainly expect your new home to be the perfect place for you and your family, therefore, make sure to take adequate time to find the perfect house.

Things you should consider when you are looking for a rental house

When you are looking for the rental house, consider the area where you work, renting is not the same as buying, when you are buying, you are obligated and limited to the prices and the loan that the bank offers you. When you are renting, I recommend you find a rental home close to your work and entertainment areas, look for areas where you do not need a car to go shopping if you have small children look for houses near parks and in good schools.

What it takes to rent a house in Forest Park

Most rental homeowners ask for the following requirements:

  • Have a permanent job and that the salary is at least twice as much as the rent costs.
  • Have established credit, if they have no established credit, have people who can serve as bondholders.
  • Not have previous forced evictions
  • Have a letter of recommendation from the previous owner
  • Background checks of all persons over 18 years of age

How much time do I need to find a rental house?

It is recommended to start the home search for at least two months in advance. With one month left to move, you must already have a written contract from the house where you are moving. Do not wait until the last minute to find the perfect rental home in Forest Park, as this will only end up with you having to accept a house that does not meet all your requirements, worse, by necessity you may have to rent a house that is not suitable and is not well maintained. That can happen if you don't take adequate time to find your next home.

Are rents negotiable?

Generally the price is fixed, but it costs nothing to ask the owner if the rent is negotiable, many of the owners are willing to negotiate something if the tenant has excellent credit and a good rental history.

I do not think it is recommended to ask to have your rent reduced if your income is not adequate to rent the home you want, you have a low credit score or if you have an eviction in your rental history.

Do the rental houses come with furniture?

You may find a house that comes with furniture included, but the vast majority does not come with furniture. If any rental house comes with furniture, it is very possible that the owner raises the rent for the cost of the furniture, but most homes in Forest Park are rented with no furniture.

Do the rental homes in Forest Park bring Washer and Dryer?

Many of the houses that are for rent in Forest Park do not bring washer and dryer, if a rental house includes these appliances, it is possible that in the rental contract there is a clause that specifies that in case one of these machines breaks, the tenant will be responsible for repairing it. Most rental homes in Forest Park, they only bring the connections for the washer and dryer.

Security deposit

To rent a house, you almost always need to put a security deposit, the security deposit is usually a month of rent, there are sometimes certain owners that can ask for more than a month, this happens when the tenant has bad credit and I have many debts in your credit history

Security deposit is also negotiable if one can show that he has a good income history or if he has a letter with good references from the previous owner. If you have a stellar rental history, it is very easy to negotiate with the new owner.

Can I rent a house if I have an eviction?

Many homeowners automatically deny people who show an eviction in their rental history. If you have an eviction, let your prospective landlord know before they run the credit to see if he or she is open to rent to you. There are some owners who are willing to accept as long as you put additional security deposit such as two or three months.

Which pays the utilities of the house?

In most cases, tenants are responsible for paying the following utilities when they rent a house:

  • Electricity
  • Water
  • Gas
  • Cable
  • Telephone
  • Trash

In some cases the tenant also has to pay the following maintenance items:

  • Cleaning Gutters
  • Replace air filters
  • Pest control
  • Yard maintenance

Review your rental agreement well before signing to ensure your responsibilities are well defined on the lease agreement.

What is the Landlord responsibilities?

In general, the Landlord is responsible for everything that happens in the house, the following list shows some but not all the things that the owner is responsible for:

  • Repair any water leaks 
  • Repair HVAC units
  • Roof repairs
  • Repair appliances
  • Repair garage doors
  • Repair or replace windows that are not operating

These are some of the things that the Landlord is responsible and are usually written in the rental agreements.

Inspect the house before moving

Once you have signed the rental agreement, the inspection of the house is a very important step. The inspection document usually has two parts, the section on the left contains information on how you receive the house and is filled out by the tenant before moving in, the section on the right contains information on how the Tenant is returning  the house back to the Landlord.

The move-in  / move-out inspection is very important as it contains the condition in which you receive and the condition in which you deliver.

The return of your deposit depends on this document, be sure to make very clear notes at the time of receiving the property, taking photos of the property at the time of inspection is highly recommended.

What is the protocol to receive my deposit back

In order for your money that you put as a security deposit to be returned, be sure to follow the contract and comply with all the clauses of the contract, here is a list of the most important clauses that you have to comply while renting:

  • Pay the rent in due time, you can lose your security deposit if you fail to pay as agreed
  • Return the house in the same condition as it was given to you, make any repairs before you return the house, once the house is returned you will not have access to make any changes.
  • Do not add more people to live in the house without the Landlord’s approval, if you do it without the owner's permission, you will be breaking the contract and as a result you will not receive your return deposit.
  • In most rental contracts, it is not allowed to smoke inside the house, if you do, the owner will use the deposit to repaint the house and if the deposit is not enough to cover the costs of painting and possible changing the carpet, The owner will ask for even more money to cover the expenses.
  • Pets, if the contract does not allow pets and you put them in the house without the owner's permission, you will surely lose your deposit.
  • In many of the rental agreements you will find this clause: It is tenant responsibility to promptly advise Landlord of any maintenance repairs, not doing so, the Landlord may make you responsible for the damages under the negligence clause.

If everything goes well and you delivered the house in the same condition you received, in the state of Georgia, the Owner has 30 days to return the deposit.

Way I can pay the Rent

Today almost no Landlord will come to your house to collect the rent check,  most of them will ask you to deposit in their bank account. In some lease agreements, it calls for the Landlord to do an ACH from your bank account, be careful if you accept this, because if you don’t have the funds at the time of the ACH, you will be charged for an insufficient funds transaction.

Some Landlords will accept credit cards, if they do, they will add the costs or running your credit card, these costs can range from 3 to 5%

Costs of paying rent late

In almost all rental agreements in the state of Georgia they have the late payment clause, it is common for the rent to be considered late after the fifth of each month, if the rent is paid after the five of each month, I am very surely the contract calls for a late fees, those fees could be up to 10% of the monthly payment
