What If The Landlord Promises To Make Repairs Before I Move In?

If the landlord has made any verbal promises to you regarding the apartment, make sure those promises are written into the lease and initialed by both parties prior to signing the lease.

For example, if the Landlord promises to paint the living room and kitchen before you move in, write the promise into the lease with a deadline for completion and have the landlord initial it.

Always ask for a photocopy of any lease that you sign and put it with your business files where you can find it later.
