I’m looking to rent an apartment in Orlando. Are leases done by the unit or by the bedroom?

It honestly depends on which apartment you’re looking into. Most apartments in Orlando have their leases arranged by the unit, meaning everyone pays rent and utilities together, under one check. This can be convenient, but you also have to make sure you and all your roommates are on the same page as far as payment for rent and utilities. College apartments by UCF and Valencia can be a different story. Many college apartment rentals offer leases by the bedroom. This is so individual students don’t get locked into leases dictated by their roommates’ class schedules and graduation times, instead of their own. Leases by the bedroom allow students to focus more on their class schedules and graduation dates without worrying about what their roommates’ plans are, in order to avoid getting locked into paying for a lease that they don’t need.
