What to Ask When Renting an Apartment

If you’re feeling lost in your apartment search and wondering what questions to ask your possible landlord, don’t worry! Check out our apartment hunting tips on what to ask during a tour.


Ask to try the running water and electricity outlets. Check that everything works as it should. Take a moment to ensure that all sinks run clear and the toilet flushes. Try to get the chance to turn on the shower briefly to test the temperature and pressure. Also, make sure to bring a phone charger to test the energy outlets, and to check for cell reception, as sometimes apartments in the middle of large buildings may have signal blockage problems.


Are there any different floor plans to choose from? While square footage is important, the unit's layout can significantly influence the look and feel of your possible new home. You will often find apartments for rent in multiple layouts and floor plans. You should be informed of your options and see for yourself the apartments that fit your budget, to confirm which suits you best.


You must know what’s included in the rent. Different apartment complexes will offer different amenities and utilities. Some apartments may include amenities that complement your lifestyle and preferences; this can help you save money, socialize, and improve your overall quality of life! Ask if any of your priority amenities are included, as well as any utilities, so you can accurately factor them into your budget.
