Spring is a great time to move! The snow is thawed, and the birds are singing in the trees. Now that the weather is warming up, you might be looking at Utah townhomes for rent. But you’ll want to arm yourself with the best information before you sign any papers and move into a new Utah townhome.

Here are some things the experts at Seasons for Rent recommend before you sign on the dotted line.

How is the Neighborhood?

Location, location, location. It’s great to have an apartment or townhome that fits the size of your family, but there’s a lot more to a home than its size.

If you have kids, you’ll want to consider the quality of schools in the area. You’ll also want to ensure easy access to parks and other recreational facilities. Kids aside, you should consider factors such as crime rates, the homeowners association, and commute time to important locations. Because, after all, you’re not just renting a townhouse; you’re renting a space in the neighborhood.

What are the Terms of the Lease?

Make sure you read every inch of the agreement before you sign. It’s common for most lease agreements to fall between the 6- and 12-month range. However some landlords are open to month-to-month options, but these are less common.

You’ll also want to understand the terms required for security deposits, utility costs, and HOA fees. All of that should be contained in the lease agreement in clear terms. You should consider moving to a different Utah townhome if it’s not written clearly.

What Amenities and Appliances are Included?

When it comes to appliances, it’s not uncommon for Utah apartments and townhouses to include a refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher in-unit. It’s also fairly normal for the townhome complex to include a washer and dryer. But ensure you’ve thoroughly studied the lease agreement to understand if these are included. If not, it could introduce an opportunity to get top-of-the-line appliances you’ve always wanted.

Amenities like a pool, fitness center, and clubhouse may also be handy amenities that could increase your quality of life. Clubhouses are great places to host large parties, and a fitness center could eliminate the need for a gym membership, saving you money.

What is the Maintenance Policy?

Depending on the lease agreement, a landlord or maintenance company may be responsible for repairing any damaged appliances or fixtures, or it could be left upon you. Ensure you understand these terms clearly so you’re not left hanging out to dry when something breaks.

In most cases, the property managers will handle fixes and repairs. Sometimes, they’ll even leave you a number you can call in case of an emergency that needs to be addressed immediately. But when it comes to simple tasks like changing lightbulbs, that will likely be your responsibility.

How is Parking?

Sometimes a property will include parking as part of the lease agreement. Other properties might charge you an additional fee for parking spaces. The best case scenario is when a townhouse property has a garage attached—that means no fighting for parking spots.

You’ll also want to consider parking spaces if you plan on hosting guests. If you plan to throw parties with lots of loved ones, consider the availability of guest parking space. And remember, some HOAs might limit parking during certain hours.
