You also may choose not to sign a renewal, or declare that you do not intend to renew your lease. Landlords prefer to get a signed renewal as early as possible, because it reduces their chances of having an unfilled apartment, and because it reduces their marketing time and expenses. Some landlords will put pressure on residents to renew by stating that their apartment will go on the market for other potential residents if they do not commit to an early lease renewal (often as early as January or February.) In reality, unless a tenant has been problematic, most landlords would probably prefer if the current resident stays in their apartment rather than finding a new resident, since that minimizes the landlord's marketing, and apartment turnover costs. Residents benefit from committing to a lease renewal as late as possible, because it leaves them more time to find a new apartment if their old one proves not to meet their needs during their lease term (issues that affect your decision to stay may come up throughout the year.) Residents also benefit from renewing later in the rental period because once they have signed a lease for the next year, the landlord has much less incentive to be responsive, since the residents are then committed to staying in the same apartment. It is to your advantage not to commit to renewing your lease until you are absolutely sure that you want to stay in your current apartment. </td> <td> <span>+</span> Some time before the end of your rental period, you will be asked to sign a ["lease renewal"].

Unfortunately, the month-to-month rental market in Davis is very limited, and these few short-term rental options do not know about their availability until 30-60 days in advance of move-in. As such, tenants unwilling to sign another year-long lease must lose their current rental without being able to secure new housing in Davis. The [https://www.facebook.com/DavisTenants Davis Tenants for a Flexible Rental Market] is a facebook page that tenants can 'like' to encourage city policy reforms to make the housing market more flexible for Davis residents, postdocs, or students whose schedule does not operate on the school-year calendar.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Rental Housing Guidehttp://daviswiki.org/Rental_Housing_Guide2014-03-03 20:14:59JudithTrumanRevert to version 99 (insufficent Davis-centric info on posted outgoing link). <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Rental Housing Guide<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 96: </td> <td> Line 96: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- * [http://www.rentlingo.com/apartments/ca/sacramento RentLingo Sacramento] Reviews and video tours<br> -</span> * ["Campus"] bulletin boards.

Both of these programs have sub-category programs for tenants metered/billed by a landlord versus customers with their own accounts. Because PG&amp;E references the latter sub-category as applicable to, "single-family" customers, it's not clear whether PG&amp;E requires all household members to be related. Please note that PG&amp;E offers other programs for households such as non-profit living groups, in addition to savings for both homeowners and tenants on the purchase of energy-saving appliances, home improvements, and even lighting products. </td> </tr> </table> </div> Rental Housing Guidehttp://daviswiki.org/Rental_Housing_Guide2008-08-13 22:11:23RachelPeterslink update <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Rental Housing Guide<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 163: </td> <td> Line 163: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ''The California Department of Consumer Affairs offers a [http://www.dca.ca.gov/<span>legal</span>/landlordbook/catenant.pdf brochure] that thoroughly outlines state law regarding security deposit refunds and those issues that most frequently become a problem.''

If things aren't going well, this can become a problem and you can potentially find yourself odd-man out.

Other co-ops have an open membership process, where you can sign up on a first-come/first-serve basis. In any case, it is usually a good idea to attend dinner or go for a co-op tour; that way you'll learn a lot about the rules and ways of the household before moving in.
