Searching for Place to Rent in Carrollton?

By: Shawn Isaacs

Beware! Mayfair of Carrollton, and others like it, may seem like a nice places, but they are businesses looking for the next dollar.

Every business is looking to make a profit. That is why many student housing or multi-family housing use rents, security deposits, and fines to ensure they have those profits at the end of each year. What makes this work is these charges are usually stated within a lease agreement or added document that all tenants have signed.

At Mayfair of Carrollton this is quite different. A unique feature of this complex is the lack of a security deposit. This makes it simple and cheaper to move into one of their units. However, this means you must be very careful upon move-out. Mayfair of Carrollton will still inspect your apartment, and you will receive a cleaning charge for anything they see has dirty, damaged, or missing. However, these charges may or may not be in your lease, and Mayfair of Carrollton management may not tell you until you receive your bill in the mail. You will then have 30 days to pay, or it will be turned into a collection agency.

Under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. §44-7-33) multi-family housing complexes are required to conduct an inspection with you before your move-in date, as long as there are 10 or more units. This is so you and the landlord will agree on the pre-occupancy condition or your rental unit. Do this with any housing you may be looking to rent from, and ALWAYS read your lease. Lastly, ALWAYS communicate with your apartment complex before they attempt to ruin your credit.

For more information about your rights or if you have other issues read the Georgia Landlord Tenant Handbook
