What to Discuss With a Potential Roommate Before Moving in Together

by | Nov 10, 2020 | Student Housing Center

If you have tight finances but want to rent your own apartment off campus, getting a roommate may be a good idea. You will be able to split the cost of rent, utilities, and other expenses. Be sure that you take the time to choose your roommate wisely.

You may be wondering what makes a good roommate. It is best to choose someone who has a similar lifestyle. Before signing a lease together on FSU apartments, discuss things like how often you will have parties or allow guests to visit. Decide on how late guests can stay at the apartment or if guests will be allowed to spend the night. Talk about cleaning habits. Living with someone excessively clean can be a good or bad thing. It is important to have this discussion.

Something else to consider before signing the lease on FSU apartments is pets. Be sure to tell your roommate that you come with a pet or find out if your roommate wants one. You need to be sure that pets are allowed in the apartment complex and see if there are any details related to having a pet that are outlined in the lease.

Talk with potential roommates about who will pay the bills. For example, you may be the one who collects the payments from everyone else and actually pays the bills. Discussing all of these things ahead of time will ensure that you find a roommate who is right for you.
