Where Should I Live?

Things to Consider

A lease is a contract. The amount of time that you sign for is the amount of time you are
expected to pay. If the place you are looking to lease with has a 12-month lease, and you cannot
stay the entire time, you should ask if subletting is allowed and if there are additional fees
associated.

Depending on your personal finances, you may need a cosigner so start having conversations
with your parent/guardian sooner than later.

If you are thinking of having roommates, know that roommate conflicts will be handled on your
own. Make sure you are comfortable with the person you decide to live with and are having good
conversations about living together before committing to live together.
