A Woodbridge apartment rental hunt can be quite tedious. Not only that, there are many things someone must watch out for or at least acknowledge when considering a certain apartment. Here are some red flags when you’re trying to find a Woodbridge apartment rental.
Woodbridge Apartment Rental Red Flags
- Beware of the words “basement” or “attic.” Advertisements that use these words are often for apartments that typically lack adequate exits.
- Avoid apartments that have rooms without windows or very small windows. These are often found in illegal cellar or basement apartments. Landlords will sometimes describe the ones with very small windows as “sunny” to entice renters.
- Beware of the word “flex.” “Flex” implies that the apartment can be converted into a multi-bedroom unit using pressurized walls. The installation and/or construction of a wall without the proper permits are illegal.
- “Utilities included” is a red flag. A landlord may not want utilities under another name connected to the property because those residents would violate the legal occupancy of the building.
- Avoid apartments with odd layouts. They are often described as “unique” or “interesting” and are oddly situated (such as a shower installed in the kitchen).
- Be cautious when a landlord refuses to disclose the exact address. Landlords advertising illegal apartments may ask to meet a potential renter before exposing the address to possible regulation or penalty.
- Beware of no-lease apartments. Be suspicious of a landlord who declines to draw up a lease, requests a month-to-month agreement or requires cash payments.
