Lakeside is a Census Designated place located at the center of the State of Virginia. It is part of the Richmond Metro Area and is in the Henrico County. It has 4.33 square miles of area, of which 4.26 square miles is land and 0.07 square miles is water. It has had a population increase since 2010 and has approximately 12,000 residents with a population density of more than 2,500 square miles. This neighborhood is considered an urban area due to its population, but it still offers a rural charm!

Moving to Lakeside

Apartment Hunt

You will find searching for rental houses in Lakeside relatively easier compared to other cities in Virginia as it has a higher vacancy rate. Be sure to know exactly what you are looking for so you can hunt down that perfect place. There are lots of choices, from premier apartments to condos and duplexes. However, the most common types of homes here are small to medium sized. There are some studio and 1 bedroom homes, but the majorities are 2 to 3 bedroom apartments. Unit types are mostly detached, but you will find duplexes or townhouses for rent that have 10 units or more.

Finding the Right Place

When searching for an apartment, make sure to consider the distance to your workplace, or school for the little ones. Though it is a relatively smaller area compared to other big cities, location is still key to everything. Consider if you want to be located near any amenities like restaurants or cafes, because this will also let you zero in on where you want to live. Most of the houses here were built between 1940 and 1969, while some were built around 1970 to 1999. Although these properties are generally sturdy and well-established, don't be deterred from making a thorough inspection before sealing the deal.

When to Search

If you want to give yourself an ample time for your search, you may need around 4 weeks. However, 2 weeks is generally enough time to find what you're looking for. Spring or fall may be the ideal moving times, as the hot and humid summer days could find you reaching more often for water, and the cold winters means bundling up. Once you have selected a place, take note of when you're allowed to move in. Some buildings permit moving in only during the weekdays or weekends, while some allow any time during the week. To make it more convenient, you may want to plan ahead schedule a specific date for your move. If the place you have selected is a hi-rise apartment, you may have to schedule the use of freight elevators or delivery areas, so save yourself a possible headache and take note of these beforehand.

What you Need when Moving

So, you have your apartment locator goggles on and your map ready. What else do you need? During your search, it's always advisable to have the necessary documents available to make the process with the landlord smooth and easy. Basic requirements include proof of identification, employment history, and credit history -- meaning you should check for any issues ahead of time and get them squared away. A letter of recommendation from your previous landlord detailing how great a tenant you were won't hurt either. Since most apartments also require advanced and security deposits, be prepared to talk specifics with your landlord. Also, remember to update your address with anyone you do business with -- this means banks, credit cards, etc. -- and don't forget to let your friends and family know where you've landed!

What about your Furry Pals?

If you have a pet, be sure to settle their moving requirements as well. If you're flying to Lakeside, a Health Certificate is required by all airlines. This is issued by your vet 10 days before your departure and states that your pet is in a good condition to travel. Before you do that, however, ensure that your new abode will allow your furry friend. While you're at the vet, it's also a good time to make sure your pet's shots are up to date, a rabies tag is highly recommended.
