5 Questions to Ask Before Moving Into a New Apartment

What You Need to Know

Are you preparing to move into an apartment? If so, you’ll probably have some questions. Following are five common questions we hear from renters moving to Wilshaw apartments in Speedway. 

1. How do I pay rent and utilities?

Knowing where and when to pay your apartment-related bills is step number one for minimizing stress. Be sure you understand what's included in your rent, which utility providers you'll need to work with for services like internet and electric, and whether you can conveniently pay bills online. Fees and utility obligations may vary based on the apartment you choose, the length of your lease, and other factors.

2. Whom do I call if I have an issue in my apartment?

Many apartment complexes feature on-site management and maintenance. Make sure you know how to get help, should you have an emergency maintenance request in the middle of the night. At Wilshaw, you can use our convenient online resident portal for communicating with the leasing and maintenance teams for non-emergency requests. 

3. What kind of modifications can I make to my apartment home?

Ask what the policy is regarding modifications or changes, such as hanging pictures, painting walls, or changing light fixtures. Most luxury apartments have policies about window treatments, too (to ensure the property looks consistent from the outside).  

4. Do you have an elevator and any other amenities?

Planning to live on the third floor? Your move-in will be a lot easier if the building has an elevator. Wilshaw has an elevator, valet trash service, and enclosed parking.

5. What is your pet policy?

If you have pets, make sure you understand the pet policy at your new apartment. Most apartments have some limit on pet weight, aggressive breeds, and/or the number of animals per apartment.
