Before you sign your lease
Dont be afraid to ask questions. Is parking
provided? How about utilities? What comes in the apartment?
Just because you think its there doesnt

Dont let the apartment complex pressure

Watch out for hidden fees.
Call the Fort Worth Police Department to see
how much crime has been committed at the apartment complex
in the last six months.
Call the Fort Worth Better Business Bureau to
see if any complaints have been filed at your complex.
Contact the Tarrant County Bar Association to
see if one of its representatives can look over your
contract before you sign it.
