What should I do if there is something that needs to be fixed prior to moving-in?

Make sure that all verbal agreements with your landlord are written into a lease. This is especially important in the case of promised repairs.  Be sure to include a  completion date  in the clause. Only a written agreement  assures you that the promises will be fulfilled.

More information on “Promised Repairs,” can be found in Step 12: Sign the Lease of our Rental Timeline.
