Tips to Find a Rental Unit
Where to Look:

- Bulletin boards in stores, laundromats, churches, credit unions, supermarkets, etc.
- Friends, neighbors, relatives may know of available units
- Yard signs advertise rentals
- Real estate offices or rental agencies
Make An Appointment:
- Ask for an appointment to see the home/unit.
- Be sure to keep it and to be on time.
- Check out the surrounding neighborhood on your visit.
Questions To Ask Prospective Landlords:
- Name, address & phone number of the owner or agent
- Full address of the home/unit
- Number of bedrooms
- Amount of rent
- Amount of Security Deposit
- Which utilities, if any, are included in the rent
- Any restrictions, such as no pets, etc.
- Will you be responsible for lawn maintenance
Note: You have the right to select any eligible unit available for lease, and are not obligated to choose a Hialeah Housing Authority owned unit if there are some available for lease.
