Why you must read the fine print before signing your next lease

Many of us choose to rent rather than buy our residence. Renting is less of a commitment. It allows more flexibility. But it’s crucial to read over your lease before signing on the dotted line. Some things to look for include your point of contact, who pays for repairs, whether or not pets are allowed, and details about the break lease clause. It’s also important to see if there’s an automatic lease renewal or additional fees associated with the rent. You should also see if you have to pay renter’s insurance, utilities, or HOA fees, and if alterations to the property can be made.
