Web sites are a good place to find an apartment or house to rent, if you want to go through the entire list to find one in your state and then city.

The best place to look for places to rent is to go to the yellow pages of your telephone book, look under property managers.

These individuals list properties for rent in certain areas, so make sure you select the areas in which you wish to rent.

Call several of the property managers listed there, tell them you want a list of properties that they have for rent. Some will fax, email or mail the list of local places to rent along with the address, number of bedrooms and bath rooms, amenities available, such as washer and dryers or gyms, the monthly rental of the unit. Most will include a rental application. These list will include the monthly rental required, if a lease or month to month agreement will be signed. They will also indicate if they will accept Section 8 vouchers. They will also indicate it they have disabled access, allow pets and if so the type allowed.

They might indicate a web site that you might visit to get their list of places to rent. It does not cost to get a rental list from a reputable property manager.

Some will require you to stop by their office and pick up the list. A lot of them post their list outside so the list are available 24/7 365.

Make sure you don’t fall for the scams and purchase a list as 70%-80% of these list are composed of free list they have compiled. They are not the property managers of any property in most instances.

You might also google Property managers in whatever city or community you want to live in and see what comes up. Again do not pay for this information as it is free from reliable property managers.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

Can I afford to live in Hollywood with only $1200 income per month?

I’m not expecting to live in some fancy, amazing mansion or loft. My car is paid off. Credit cards are paid off. Can I afford a studio apartment, food, gas, life? Thanks for your input!

Administrator answers:

Depending on if you desire to live in Hollywood proper or one of the surrounding cities or how far you reside from Hollywood.Because of the name Hollywood it is expensive just to reside there.

Apartments are expensive, however you might find rooms available that might be reasonable.

As to the cost of food, I find the food to be very inexpensive, however it depends on if you want steak and shrimp every night or are you willing to shop at discount grocery stores. In California food products are not taxed as some states charge a tax on food.

Helen asks…

how to get someone out of illegal basement apartment?

My parents keep on making mistakes and they just dont stop. Now that I am old enough, I am trying to fix their problems. Any advice would be really appreciated. My parents rented out out basement illegally to some people, and now we want them out. I know this sounds like a radical idea, but my parents need to learn not to do stupid crap, so If I was to report my parents to the town, would it help in getting these people out faster? Any other ideas as to how to get them out?

Administrator answers:

It really depends on the terms of the rental agreement. Do not report them. In California a landlord who rents an illegal dwelling is liable for all the rent the person ever paid… Plus up to $5200.00 in relocation fees. I had the same thing happen to me with an illegal garage conversion that was already existing when I bought my house. The City came and told me to vacate the rental room. The City doesn’t care about the liability faced by the Landlord. I finally gave the dead-beat $500.00 and luckily…he moved out. Your parents are in a dangerous position legally. I would strongly recommend offering the tenant money to leave but structure the payment to take place the day they leave and only after they are totally vacated. At the last minute, when they are standing there salivating for the money promised them for moving out…force them to sign a release of liabilty (or a quit-claim) freeing your parents from any legal claims to damages for any reason now and forever. They will sign it. Good Luck!

David asks…

Any advice on getting an apartment in a new state in advance?

I live in California and I’m trying to move to New York. I’m not sure how to get started with any of it. Does anybody have any advice on how to get a room lined up so I can go straight to it once I get off the plane? I don’t want to spend countless nights in hotels waiting to see if I’ve been approved for an apartment or not. I’d like to know in advance that I have a place to go. Thanks.

Mark asks…

How can i fight an eviction in Los Angeles County, California?

My mother was evicted back in Feb 2010 from an apartment In Los Angeles County, California. Because I was over the age of 18 I too had to fill out an application to rent. I had no idea that this was putting me on the lease. It was never explained to me. So once she stopped paying rent and got evicted, so do I. I was 19 years old, a full time college student not working just living at home with my mother. I feel this is so unfair, I cant even get a good job because of this judgement against me. Someone please help me! I dont know where to start.

Administrator answers:

You and your mom work on paying off the debt or making a deal with the landlord, if they are still handling the debt, or the bill collectors. If you don’t handle this, you will not be able to rent a decent apartment for many years, as landlords not only check your credit, they check your rental history.

It is fair. You were an adult, it doesn’t matter who you were living with, why do you think you had to sign a rental agreement? You were agreeing to everything on the contract. It is fair, you just don’t like the way it turned out. If you feel you shouldn’t have been held liable, your problem is with your mom, get her to pay what you see as only her debt.

Good luck!

Lisa asks…

I am leaving my current apartment when my lease ends. What if a mirror is broken or my fridge is falling apart?

Hey guys I am moving to another place when my lease ends.

However I will admit that my current place is a little dirts.

For expample like the mirror door in my medicine cabinet broke,

and also I think there is a leaking pipe in my tub which causes the tub to not dry out and is started to blacken the paster in the corners.

Also like the sticky thinkg in my fride door is not that sticky, And the oven door hande in my stove has broken

I have also made some stains in my carpet.

If I call them to fix these issues what would happen?

Or what if I just wait til my lease ends? What will happen then?

Administrator answers:

You don’t mention where you are at. Landlord/tenant laws vary from state to state and country to country

you should have notified your landlord when each of these things happened. In general they are things the landlord could/should have fixed. My rental agreement tells the tenant to notify the landlord for repairs, most of that sounds like it falls under expected landlord maintenance. If you call the landlord should make the necessary repairs

when your lease ends and you move out your landlord will repair and clean the apartment to get it ready for a new tenant. If you paid a security deposit the landlord may use some of that money for repairs they believe you have caused – such as the carpet stains

i own rental property in southern california. The law there allows me to use the security deposit for three things – unpaid rent, cleaning, and repairs
