Pay Rent on Time

Follow the Rules

Read the lease. There you will find the rules in which you are expected to abide by. Most landlords have very simple and basic rules for tenants to follow that simply ensure the good welfare and safety of every resident at the property.

Do Not Make Permanent Updates

Without prior permission from the property management company, of course. Renting a home means that you are only borrowing the property for a specified period of time, thus making permanent updates is out of the question without permission.
