1. should we both be on the lease? he'll be paying the rent, and he has better credit than me.
2. can i live there if my name isn't on the lease?
3. if he's going to be the only one on the lease, does it look bad if i go look at places with him? does it look better to have a female along, as they typically are quiter and neater that their male counterparts (yes, i know, there are quite a few exceptions, you don't have to tell me about them)
4. what do you look for in an apartment?
5. anything else important that i missed because i am totally new to this?
