Plenty of research and common sense are the best ways to stay safe when renting an apartment. Two easy to follow rules: 1. View rentals with a friend and, 2. Only send money after signing the lease, never before.
Signing a new lease can be just as dangerous and costly for landlords as it is for tenants. Owners, make sure to call references, perform a credit check and always meet with the tenants before signing a lease.
As a general rule, if something seems "too good to be true" it more than likely is. For example, if the rent is considerably less than comparable apartments in the area, you're best to stay away and keep on looking.
