Renter's guide to Buffalo, NY

The Queen City of the Great Lakes welcomes you!

When most people think of Buffalo, they think of snow. It’s a logical comparison, since the city averages about 82 inches of snow per year – but all that lake-effect snow shouldn’t be a detractor.

Buffalo is a vibrant city with plenty more to do than endlessly shovel your driveway. In fact, the average number of sunny days here is 155, and the temperature in July is around 80°F, which makes up for January’s average of 18°F.

At 52 square-miles, Buffalo is nearly ten times smaller than New York City, which is 292 miles away.

Travel + Leisure magazine gave Buffalo first place in its ranking of America’s Favorite Cities – and the residents here agree. Plus, there’s the added bonus of being just a 23-mile drive to Canada, and only 19 miles from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls.

Tips for renting in Buffalo, NY

Buffalo is waiting for you! But before you move, there are a few renters’ rights you should know about.

For one, there's no state limit on how much a landlord can require for a security deposit. That also goes for pet deposits.

On top of that, the state doesn't require landlords to present a renter with a written list of damages for which they'll hold a security deposit. And the only time limit for actually returning your security deposit is within a “reasonable” amount of time.

Clearly you'll want to keep excellent records and treat your rental property with the utmost care in order to avoid some of these potential pitfalls.
