How to Avoid Problems While Moving

May is the most popular time of the year for people to move. Between packing, signing contracts and spending money, there are plenty of reasons to stress. To make sure you don't skip over anything when you're going through the moving process, we talked to an expert today to help you figure out your legal rights when it comes.

Larry Bodine said 40 million people move every year and one out of five people suffer from moving damages. He said you should get zero deductible property damage insurance to make sure you don't have any problems.
Most properties have insurance but it's recommended to get a separate kind. He also told 5 News every landlord is different, so you need to make sure you know the rules of the area.
"What I would recommend is to look in the local ordinances of the town that they live in because landlords frequently take advantage of tenants and these ordinances are going to contain a lot of tenant right provisions," said Bodine. 
Sometimes people have trouble getting their deposits back. Landlords said it's because the tenant does something illegal, damage the property or break the lease. But a lot of times there is no paperwork to back that up, causing people on both sides to have problems.
When you move into a new area make sure you read every detail in any type of paperwork you have. Scams are big issue too, so that's another reason you should have everything written out.
