When you’re touring communities you may want to ask the following questions:

  • Is the community gated?
  • Is there controlled access to buildings and amenities?
  • Is there a guard or courtesy officer that patrols the community?

Asking these things will help you get a good idea of how safe a place for rent is. You may also want to take it upon yourself to contact the local police department to acquire a crime report of the community for rent. This is a great tools to help determine problem areas in and around the complex.
