What to expect when renting a condo

If you’ve never rented a condo before you might be in for a series of rude shocks: unexpected delays, hefty fees, gotcha pet policies – even a visit from the sheriff when your owner’s been foreclosed.

A couple months back I sat down with Tim Brent of Chicago Apartments & Condos to talk about condo rentals. Tim’s an 18-year veteran of the apartment rental industry, and familiar with the highly-individualized requirements of different condo complexes.

The takeaway: steer clear of most apartment rental services if you’re about to rent a condo. Go directly to the listing agent,, the landlord or a highly-experienced rental agent. And be sure you get all the relevant facts in advance.
