Apartment free house rental can be a lot of fun. Often people prefer to rent a house instead of an apartment. If you decide to do it too, there are some issues that you should be aware of. If you are planning to rent a house here are some things to keep in mind:
Who will pay for utilities?
You will have to pay for all your utilities like water and power, garbage disposal and sewerage. Figure out who is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the septic tank.
Do I have to do winter maintenance?
Landlords rarely pay for snow removal, so if you stay in an area where it snows in winter, you will have to invest in a snow blower or sign a contract with a snow removal service.
What about minor repairs and maintenance?
Apartment free house rentals mean that you are pretty much on your own when it comes to maintenance of the property. However, it is best to clear these things with the landlord and find out who to call in case of an emergency.
My apartment free house rental has a fireplace. Isn't that great?
Yes, fireplaces are good to have, but you must confirm that it is functional before you sign the lease. Also remember that you will be paying for the fuel and the cleaning of the chimney.

am a new landlord and this was the perfect site for
me to join. My friend who only has 2 rental units referred
me to LandlordOnline. The ease of use was the selling point

to date on issues.
