Down payments will vary from community to community. Down payments can include one or more of the following: first month's rent, last month's rent, and security deposit. While budgeting for moving, you should prepare to owe about three times the amount of one month's rent. There may be other small costs required such as application fees and credit check fees. Ask the leasing office what forms you may pay for these costs, such as money order or check.
