Feel a lot better about the apartment arrangemets now...

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Here is what the man who helped me to get the apartment told me today and it makes a heck of a lot more sense now...

Number 1...OK...On September 10th (Move in day)...My half of the rent will be ONLY 450 dollars.

Secondly...I will owe on September 10th...a pro-rate fee of 315 dollars, I think that is what he told me.

According to this man it is ALL to be split 50-50 after that.

That pro-rate fee is to cover any damages we do to the apartment and also any rent months we miss after we move out.

Are we on the same page here?.

Tony also said to give my roomates father the check for the security deposit, OK?.

And I will do that tomorrow as I have an outing with a group of friends tomorrow at Dave and Busters (an amusement/gaming place in Ohio) at 6:30PM that my girlfriend's mother is picking me up for.

I did not ask as I did not see it necessary yet to ask about the renter's insurance policy or about the utilities, etc.

I hope not doing that was OK?.

    learning about what the utilities will run will help you with your finances. Renter's insurance is so important that everyone should invest in ... it is relatively cheap but plays such an important role in the event of a catastrophic event .... good luck to you.

    Is your roommate's father the one who is putting up the security deposit and signing the lease? If so, then you should give him the check. If not, then usually the check would normally go to the landlord or rental agency. Check with your caseworker. In most roommate situations, utilities are split 50/50, and you are each responsible for your own renters insurance (which covers your personal property)
