When you get into your new rental home, make sure you thoroughly check to see if all the windows open, all the faucets have both hot and cold water, and that the heat and air conditioning (if included) work. Whether the utilities are included or you pay for them yourself, you want to make sure they are in good working condition. It would be terrible to have a hot summer with windows that barely open or a long cold winter with heat that never shut off and cost you a fortune. Do an inspection and have it repaired by the landlord to a fair working condition before it becomes a very costly problem.
