5 Questions To Ask On An Apartment Tour In Brownsburg
What’s The Apartment’s Pet Policy?
Finding out about the pet policy is a must if you own a cat or dog, or you’re considering adopting one very soon. After all, your pet needs to be just as happy in your apartment as you are. But it's also a good question to ask on an apartment tour if you’re not a pet owner. That way, you know what critters you might run into on a day-to-day basis. Also think of asking what amenities the apartment complex has for pets -- like dog parks or free waste disposal sacks.
How Will I Pay Rent And Utilities?
20 years ago, rent was typically paid by check at the main office. Now, there could be many ways to pay rent. Does the complex have an app or can they link direct deposit through my bank? Can I put it on my credit card and receive points for my rent payment? Some companies might even allow you to pay through popular payment systems like PayPal or Venmo. Asking how you pay rent while on an apartment tour can be important for those who are traveling a lot or want an easier option for paying rent.
Learning how utilities work can also make your life easier during your lease. What utilities come with rent? Are you able to add utilities to my rent check? Are utilities, like gas and water, determined by communal use or are they calculated by each individual apartment? Do I have a choice on the internet, phone, or cable providers, or do I have to use the same company as the other residents? These questions should be simple, but sometimes the answers are surprising.
What Amenities Can I Use?
Your Brownsburg apartment tour should also include a quick look. During your Brownsburg apartment tour you should also walk through the amenities and grounds. Although an overview of what’s available is helpful, you may wish to inquire about residents' day-to-day usage of the complexes’ amenities.
If you’d like to work out in the morning or late at night due to your work schedule, make sure you ask about the fitness center’s hours -- and when it’s the busiest. Families may like to understand what the children’s policy is for the basketball court or pool and hot tub. If you’d love an apartment that’s not just a space to lay your head down at night, but a community to fully enjoy, it’s crucial to ask about amenities on your apartment tour. The answers may be the decision point between two apartment communities in Brownsburg.
How Do I Request Maintenance?
Before you leave your apartment tour, be sure that you ask about the maintenance situation. Maintenance policies and procedures can vary between companies, from on-site maintenance to contract repair that has to be booked within regular business hours. Emergencies do crop up from time-to-time, but it’s how maintenance is able to respond that can deeply influence how you feel about your apartment.
When you ask about maintenance, it’s good to be thorough. Does the complex have 24-hour on-site maintenance, or can they only perform repairs during regular business hours? Who do I call about an urgent repair need? Can I go online to fill out a maintenance request? And how will I know when they are done? You may want to ask what services wouldn’t be done by maintenance, like washer/dryer installation or ceiling fan installation.
