Now that the craziness is over and you’ve had a few days to get settled into your new apartment, you can finally breathe a sigh of relief. While the stress of your actual move may be over, there are still a few things that you should take care of after moving to a new place in order to prevent headaches later. Check out these tips that we recommend to new residents:
Read the Lease
Even though you should have already read the lease at the time of the lease signing, it’s not fresh in your mind. Read it, and then read it again. You may have just initialed where you were told to, but you should have received a copy of your lease with your move-in packet or emailed to you. If you did not receive one, ask your landlord or property representative for a copy. Make sure you understand everything you are responsible for, like making sure your rent is turned into the office before the first of the month, not just postmarking it by then.Continue reading →
Sharing a bedroom with another person can be difficult, but sometimes it has to be done. If you’ve lived in a dorm, chances are that you have already had to share a room with someone, so you know that it can be stressful. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be! We’ve put together some tips to survive sharing a bedroom with your roommate without going crazy.
Set roommate guidelines from the beginning:
Whether you’re best friends with the person you’re sharing your bedroom with or just meeting them for the first time, guidelines are important. Get together and set some ground rules. A few things to talk about are cleanliness, food, schedules, and guests.
Have you been slacking when it comes to looking for a place to live this fall, and realize you now only have about 2.5 months to find a place? Well, don’t worry, MPM’s got you covered. Whether you’re looking for a place for yourself, or for you and 4 other roommates, we’ve put together a list of some last minute housing options just for you.
High Rises – all utilities, cable and internet included!
Finding a new apartment can sometimes be challenging. What’s more challenging is if you are unable to view a unit before signing a lease for it. Whether you are unable to get off work during the available showing hours, you live out of state, or you are moving from another country, we have a few tips for you when it comes to signing for an apartment “sight unseen”.
