Are you looking for your first place to live? How do you do it? Where do I start?
First you are looking for a place to rent. This could be an apartment, room, home, condo, duplex or some other living location. Renting means you pay somebody or a company an amount of money, usually on a monthly basis, so that you can live there. You are required to take good care of the place, they should fix major repairs. You will sign a lease document; it will spell out the terms of your agreeement. If you are classified as a minor in the state where you wish to rent, you will most likely have to have a co-signer on the lease. Yep that means mom or dad or other legal guardian. Your lease will determine if you have a refundable security deposit, there may be an additional deposit for any pet. There will be a term or length of the lease, typically in monthly increments. It should have when your rent is due and when a payment is considered late, along with any penalties.
So those are the basics of renting, check with your parents if you need expert advice.
