Payment by check or money order is advised for receipt and record keeping purposes. Understand the agreement BEFORE you sign it, and keep a copy.

Screening Roommates: Know their parent's home address and phone number. Have a Roommate Agreement informally written up specifying your expectations regarding paying bills, cleaning up, lights out, noise, general lifestyle, etc.
Student-Tenant Resume Tips: Creating a student resume would be a very beneficial way to introduce yourself to a prospective landlord. Basic information for your tenant resume would include the following: name, address and phone number of your parents, your last rental address, duration of tenancy, and manager's name. List jobs you have held, volunteer experience, clubs you belong to and your interests and hobbies. Also, include your financial information and a few good personal references.
