And one last one, what is the general thing that I should watch out for as a tenant?
Exit clauses (must have a dip clause!).
Be sure to take a camera along with the agent to fully document the condition of the ENTIRE UNIT from floors to ceilings, documenting anything and everything that doesn't look brand new. This is essential as a fair number of landlords are not above trying to keep your deposit with is normally 2 or 3 months rent. They will used any means to keep from refunding it including cooking up some elaborate repair schemes. When you turn over the keys back to the landlord ensure that something is signed on the spot at the inspection confirming return in what condition and/or what requires attention. Otherwise, they will come back after you are not there and then claim all kind of things were not looked at.
Ensure that, if airconditioned, you have it serviced regularly and also require that it is serviced just prior to your taking possession with the date of servicing noted. You should have it serviced quarterly at a minimum.
This is just a couple of things to beware of, I'm sure there are more here who will chime in with a more complete list. Matter of fact, do a search using the search function and there were a couple of good threads here on this exact topic.
