Temporary Housing Guide - What Should You Look For?

There may come a time in your professional career when you need temporary housing because you are going to be in a particular city for an extended period of time. Our guide will show you what to look for when searching for temporary housing.

 

What Questions Should I Ask?

Is it fully furnished?

This is a big one. You don’t want to rent temporary housing, only to get there and discover that nothing is included. An empty house or apartment is a lot to fill, and you need to make sure that it is fully furnished before you ever sign a lease.

How long is the lease?

With corporate housing, it usually isn’t a problem to do a shorter lease. If you are only going to be in a city for just a few weeks, make sure that you tell the property or leasing manager. They will likely be more than happy to work something out for you. There are usually even options to leave the lease open-ended if you don’t know how long you will need to live there. You normally just have to give a notice of a certain number of days before you plan on moving out.

What is included in the monthly rent?

Asking what amenities are included is very important when looking for corporate housing. Some things you need to ask about are utilities, cable, repairs, etc. Something also worth asking is if pets are allowed, if you are a pet owner and will need to bring your dog or cat with you.

Who do I contact if there are any issues?

Is there a property manager to contact in case of an emergency or if a problem arises? It is helpful to know who you will need to talk to if you ever need to contact someone. Sometimes it is the property owner, and other times there is a specific point person who handles all issues with their properties.

Do I need insurance?

Ask the leasing agent if they provide insurance, or how things will be handled if there is a spill or break. You will need to know if you will be monetarily responsible for such things.
