Homes and Condos For Rent
There are many rental options in the Fort Lauderdale area including single family homes, condos and townhomes. Rental properties in Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding area are in high demand, so we recommend you follow our guidelines for making sure your rental search goes smoothly.
- Check your credit! Many landlords and condominium associations require credit checks and they can deny you a rental if your credit is not to their satisfaction. It is a good idea to know your credit before starting your search.
- Its a good idea to start your rental property search with a local web site (like this one) to get an idea of prices, styles and locations. Once you narrow down your criteria you should contact an agent to set up your showings and assist you with your paperwork.
- If you have pets you may have a difficult time renting a condo, especially if you have a large dog. Many condo communities don’t allow pets and the ones that do typically allow only smaller dogs and cats (under 20 pounds). Make sure you tell your agent what kind of pets you have so they can provide you with pet friendly options.
- If you plan on renting a condo, be prepared for an association interview. It is usually not a big deal, but it can slow down the process and delay your move in date.
- Most landlords require first month, last month and a one month security deposit to move in. That’s 3 months of rent that is due at lease signing. Make sure you have the funds available or you could lose your rental.
