What happens to a $1000 deposit in an apartment lease?
I’m 18, I’m a freshman in college, and things are getting rough at my house with my controlling parents. Right now I have about 00 in my bank account, but sometime in February or March I’ll receive 50 in student loans. I plan to use that money for living costs. About 0 of this money will be deducted for school, because the rest of my schooling is covered. The rent at the apartment I’m looking at is set at 9 a month, and I THINK it includes everything. I haven’t signed or talked to anyone yet. I am pretty sure though because that’s what the add said. I’m looking for a job, but my mom will probably take my car away, so I’ll to find something close to school. The apartment requires a 00 deposit. What is done with that money? Does that include first months rent or not?
Also, any opinions or suggestions on my current situation? Do you think it’s a bad idea for me to move out? My parents really are horrible to me. They tell me that I can only drive to school and home. It’s ridiculous. Thank you!
