    Unless you want to live in someplace unsafe, you have to go at least an hour or two out of LA if you want to save more than like $100 a month on rent, and then the rent isn't going to be much lower, until you get to Palmdale and places like that, but much of it is now unsafe. (Lots of rental scams on homes out there, too.) The problem with living out in the boonies is that they have higher unemployment than LA, and it's really too far to drive for work in LA, there isn't much in the way of public transportation, and the added gas/car expense negates much of your rent savings. Even the unsafe areas of LA aren't all that cheap.

    Around LA, you should be able to find an ok single starting at $800 - $900, and a one bedroom starting at $1100 - $1200. Sometimes you can find something a bit cheaper, but the search might take awhile. Glendale, Burbank, Pasadena are less expensive but a little bit (maybe $100 a month) compared to Hollywood and other areas of LA, and are often nicer for the cost. Always check out the apartment, building and neighborhood, things can change from block to block. You have to decide on your comfort zone.

    There are many rental scams out there. If it seems like a fantastic deal, it's probably a scam. Be careful of illegal sublets, too. You'll be evicted quickly and lose your deposit and rent payment. In LA, we just bite the bullet and pay the high price for rentals and homes. At least it's not as bad as in NY.

    you're new to the section. something close to the sea coast is seen best actual sources, and instructions a top rate cost. $six hundred as 0.5 the hire could recommend you would be searching for a $1200 condominium. I heavily doubt you will discover a 2 mattress room condominium (which you're able to actual desire to stay in) close to a sea coast for that cost. evaluate 2 room pals, and $1800 a month, and it truly is a possibly. in case you do get right into a room mate subject be sure you shelter your self financially with the aid of fact in many situations room pals do not stay at the same time for long. Make honestly particular each physique consents on the homestead regulations, and positioned each thing IN WRITING. issues which incorporate who will pay what, the way it truly is paid, whilst it is going to possibly be paid, Who cleans what, what areas are shared and that are inner maximum. Brainstorm each achieveable problem that should take place and how it may be resolved. the main needed is to under no circumstances pay in funds with out having a receipt. could desire to certainly one of you opt for to pass out leaving the different caught with a hire they are able to't probably locate the money for to pay, you will want a WRITTEN contract and evidence OF funds to apply in court docket once you're able to desire to sue the different roomie that moved out.
