Whenever you make a large purchase, it’s important to be on the lookout for potential fraud. Renting a home is no exception. While technology has made the rental process easier, it has also enabled opportunistic swindlers to victimize renters with just a few clicks. To prevent this from happening to you, Redfin asked us and other experts for tips to avoid landlord fraud.

Jeanne Lau, a Lyda Law Firm attorney location in Southern California, provided the following quotation:

"Read your lease agreement. Landlords are increasingly putting in 'discounted' rental prices to quickly and significantly raise annual rent later on. Sometimes these discount provisions are buried deep in the agreement so that some renters mistakenly overlook them. So when you see the rental price, make sure this wasn’t offered at a discount, and try to see what the actual rental price is. Make sure you read the lease agreement carefully, as you might find an unsavory clause buried deep within the agreement."

Lyda Law Firm handles a variety of legal matters, including real estate law, and often helps tenants deal with unscrupulous landlords.
