Even if you've already found your perfect apartment, a rent payment flaw could easily opt you out of your dreamy rental. Conversely, you may find out that there are extra amenities in the rent agreement you might benefit from. Before signing a rental agreement, ask the landlord the following rent payment questions and get clear answers.

What's included in rent?
You probably know what the monthly rent price is, but do you know everything it includes?

Your rent price may include certain utilities, a parking space or storage space. Even if it's not included in rent, ask if your landlord offers storage or parking for an additional cost, if you're interested in those amenities.

How do I pay rent?
Rent is typically paid online or by check. Understanding how to deliver your payment is important because if it's unclear, your payment may be considered late and you could potentially be responsible for a late fee.
