Tips for Renting in McDonough

Moving to McDonough is much like moving to any other new place. That being said, there are also some specifics that you should be aware of.

If your new landlord requires a security deposit, you have the right to inspect the unit before moving in. They should also provide a list of any problems or damages to the unit.

But once you sign that lease, you're locked in. Some states offer a 72-hour back-out period, but not Georgia.

On the plus side, Georgia does have a “repair and deduct” law that gives you the right to hire someone to do repairs if your landlord fails to provide them in a timely manner. You can then deduct the cost of the repair from your rent.
