Listen Read about how to use the Listen-button

Looking for a place to live with enough room that is in safe and decent condition and affordable is challenging. You may also need a place by a certain date or near where you work or where your children go to school. Whatever your situation is, you will be better off if you know your rights before you agree to take an apartment.

The purpose of this chapter is to tell you what steps you can take to protect your rights as you look for and move into an apartment and how you might be able to avoid potential problems or misunderstandings with your landlord.
