4. Utilities. Make sure you understand what the landlord is responsible for and what you are. In the house we’re moving to we’re responsible for the trash and electricity, and the landlord is responsible for water. The tricky part is that they all come on the same bill.
5. Paypal. We had a landlord once that accepted the rent check via paypal. While this was probably unusual, it was very convenient since the rent check was the only physical check we would have been writing, all the rest of our bills we pay online.
