2. Local Ordinances
Most towns in RI have ordinances that will affect you as a renter. Most problems arise from violations of various ordinances relating to noise, parking and trash so make sure you go to our town site links and check out what applies to you – be a good neighbor it pays in the long run. See the tenant section for more info on state and local rental laws and ordinances.
3. Landlord Relations
Landlords who regularly rent to students are well versed in the potential pitfalls of student behavior, but just remember you all have security deposits and many of you may have parental co-signers on your lease so tread carefully and respect your landlord’s property as if it were your own. A hassle free stay and a pleasant relationship with your property manager are things worth having, and then you can just relax and enjoy your stay.
