Hello, my name is Penny Smith. I’m a North
Carolina real estate broker. Today I’d like to talk to you about how to rent a house or
an apartment. There’s quite a process that you need to go through. Once you find the
property that you want to rent and you know that the price on that property is what you
want to pay, then you need to sign a contract. If the owner doesn’t already have preprinted
contracts then he may require an application as well. And which you will have to provide
him with your personal information so that he can do a search to make sure that you are
a suitable renter. And then he will have to provide you with a contract. He can buy those
contracts at Office Depot or get them form his personal real estate agent. In each case
it is his responsibility to provide them. I highly recommend that you have someone to
read over that contract to make sure it’s in your best interest. Whether that be a real
estate attorney or a family member that you think has some experience with contracts.
Those are my recommendations on how to rent an apartment or house. Thank you and I hope
you have a good day.
