Be aware of the common red flags that can have negative effects on your experience as an off-campus renter. If you are mindful of the hazards, you will be more apt to making the best and safest decisions for yourself.
Asking for any form of payment before meeting or signing the lease or telling you to wire money is never safe. Do not send money to someone you have never met for an apartment you have not yet seen.
Turning a living room, garage or basement into a bedroom is illegal unless properly permitted by the town.
All listings options provided on our website are legal and properly permitted but if you choose to search through other sites, please be cautious to ensure the rentals are safe and permitted.
