El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Before you move into your new apartment, the BBB advises you to do your homework.
The BBB says people should read through every single document they are signing before moving into an apartment. They also say check state laws to find out what your rights are as a Texas tenant. They also advise to speak with others who already live in the complex.
"I would also advise to ask around. If somebody hasn't had a good experience, then you're likely to not have a good experience as well. The same goes for if they are going to have a good experience then you will likely, too. So ask around. Ask people who have lived there," Margo Monreal of BBB El Paso told us.
The BBB also advises you ask the apartment manager for a list of tenants who may be able to share their insights.
