Thank you for previewing our home for rent. This quick reference sheet will help you avoid rental scams and dishonest landlord.


You may be dealing with a rental scam or a dishonest landlord if:

  • The landlord asks for the security deposit before you sign the lease
  • You see the same property advertised on different web sites by different Landlords or management companies or for different prices.
  • The landlord lives out of state and doesn’t have a local management company with whom you can have regular contact.
  • The landlord will not provide you with their office or home address.
  • The landlord asks you for money up front to help you find a property.
  • The landlord doesn’t have an official ‘Rental Application’ form for you to complete.
  • The landlord does not require that you sign a legally binding lease and give you a fully executed copy

If you suspect you are being scammed, please feel free to contact our office, and we will help in researching the property for you.
