ADK by Owner

ADK by Owner

I've used the ADKBYOWNER web site to find a house to rent in the Saranac Lake/Lake Placid area. I'm having trouble sending a big downpayment check to a total stranger. Can anyone vouch for the integrity of the owners in general or are there any horror stories that I need to know about? Thanks!

We have rented a few different places over the years and didn't have a problem. Most recently we found a place we really liked and now go there exclusively which is of course no problem with sending them money. I really believe most people are honest and reliable. I've noticed on (I think the ADK By Owner listings), rentals are handled by a management company and they handle the rental details including the deposits. You might want to check that out.

I made a mistake on my advice to you about the ADK by Owner site. After I replied to you I went to their site and it turns out this isn't the site I was thinking of that has a management company that takes care of the deposits. I am trying to remember where I have seen this. I will see if I can find it and let you know. All the rentals we have done have been with ADK by Owner and as I mentioned, we didn't have any problems with sending the down payment check but I'll see if I can find the other site I was referring to.
