Things to take into consideration when renting in Brickell:

MOVE IN COSTS

  • In most cases, first month of rent, last month of rent, + 1 month security deposit will be required (*refundable). 
  • Some landlords require 1 month rent + 2 months for security deposit (*refundable)
  • Pets fees or deposits may apply
  • Tenants do not pay taxes on 6 month or more leases
  • Utilities are paid by tenants, except for those included in the monthly condo fee. Typically only water and garbage removal are included. In some buildings basic cable and internet are also inlcuded. Electricity is seldomly covered.
*Any amount held by landlord as security deposit is refundable at the end of the lease agreement as long as there is no damage to the property. Otherwise, landlord can deduct repairs/replacements from the security deposit.

BUILDING/ASSOCIATION DEPOSITS OR FEES

  • Most buildings charge tenants with a refundable security deposit. This is not to be paid by the landlords but by the tenant. It covers the building from damages to the common areas by tenants and/or tenant’s guests.
  • In some cases, landlords pay for building’s security deposit but remember, it is not the landlord who will be using the amenities and potentially causing damages (even accidentally). Therefore, there is no obligation for the landlord to pay it or to reduce the amount he/she requires because of this. 
  • The security deposit could be 1 full month, a fixed amount (ex. $500), or in rare cases, a one time non-refundable fee.
  • The security deposit shall be refunded to tenant at the end of the lease if no damage is caused to the building’s common areas.
  • Non-refundable application fees are charged to all tenants. Fees vary from building to building but they are around $100 - $150 per adult. Some buildings charge only one application fee to married couples by presenting a marriage certificate.
  • Most associations take up to 2 weeks to process applications and issue approval letters.

PETS

  • only a handful number of buildings allow tenants to have pets
  • In most cases, only one pet is allowed
  • Some buildings charge a deposit for each pet.
  • Some buildings charge a fee for pets

  • Some larger units or older buildings might have 2 assigned parkings but it is difficult to find a unit with more than 1 parking space. 
  • Some buildings have complementary valet parking for a second car. Other buildings offer the same for a monthly fee.
  • Some associations have parking spaces to rent on first-come-first-served basis. Rental fees vary from $100 - $250 per month. There is no warrantee to get one extra parking every month even if you are willing to pay for it.
