When looking for houses for rent in San Diego, a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom single-family home may rent anywhere from $1,600 – $3,300 per month around the county. Assess your lifestyle needs and comfortable monthly budget parameters to help you narrow down your options by location. Alternatives to a single-family home may be a townhome, duplex or larger condominium unit.
Your rental contract will be a mutual agreement between you and your future landlord. If your lifestyle demands greater flexibility, consider a month-to-month contract that allows you to be released from your rental agreement with a 30-day notice. Alternatively, if you foresee yourself settling into a location for a lengthier period of time, consider working with the landlord to create a longer lease e.g. 2 years, in return for a discounted monthly rate. Landlords value reliable, long-term tenants and are often open to negotiating terms if you commit to staying in the property for a longer period of time. It’s worth the conversation with your landlord.
It’s customary for landlords leasing houses for rent in San Diego to cover water, sewer and trash pick-up. This typically leaves you as the tenant responsible for electricity, cable, internet and any other conveniences. Before signing your rental agreement have the landlord or property manager confirm exactly what items will be the landlord’s responsibility.
Security deposits for houses for rent in San Diego will vary by rental property. Typically a rental agreement will request a security deposit in the sum of one full months rent. This security deposit is in addition to the first months rent you will pay and most landlords will require both due at the time of signing the rental agreement. The property manager or landlord will then hold the security deposit for the duration of your rental agreement. Depending on your rental contract the security deposit funds may be either relinquished back to you in full at move-out or kept in full (or a portion thereof) to cover any damages done to the rental property during your tenancy.
Again this varies by landlord and property management company. Many renters are asked to agree to a credit check and charged a fee of about $35 to have the credit check completed. Once the credit check is run you may be eligible or ineligible for tenancy depending on the results. You may request a copy of the credit check from the landlord or property manager.
