It’s no secret that most Greeley renters are familiar with a 12-month lease. But how should you approach finding an apartment if you don’t plan to stay in a place long enough to sign this “standard” lease? Keep reading as we shed some light on short-term apartment leases.
The Benefits of a Short-Term Apartment Lease
- More flexibility – This is definitely the most obvious benefit of a short-term lease. Let’s say, for example, that you recently took a temporary job that may only last several months. In this scenario, it wouldn’t make much sense to sign a traditional 12-month lease. A short-term lease, on the other hand, offers the flexibility to move on short notice. The same idea holds true if you are new to a city and don’t want to feel as though you’re married to a particular neighborhood. When you sign a short-term lease, you have the freedom to explore different parts of town, making a note of where you could see yourself living long-term.
- No lease break charges – This type of lease also allows tenants to explore other apartments without having to fret over the penalty of breaking a lease. Keep in mind that shorter leases typically require anywhere from 30-60 days of notice from the tenant. Believe it or not, Northern Colorado renters are hit with outrageous lease break charges every day. Don’t be forced to drain your savings because you failed to communicate with your landlord! It’s imperative to understand these penalties as early as possible.
- Modification – Think back to your last 12-month apartment lease. When you signed this contract, you knowingly agreed to its terms and conditions. So if you wanted to change the details of your lease for whatever reason, you would have likely had to jump through a number of hoops. Short-term leases are different in that they offer more of a chance to update certain details. Whereas longer terms provide stability for the tenant, shorter terms often allow for modifications within reason.
