I am looking forward to renting an apartment. I think it is the apartment of my dreams. I would nonetheless, change the carpet in the bedroom to either a different type of carpet or take it off and put tiles. I would be more than willing to put it back right before I leave and all this I would pay for out of my own pocket. Do you know if doing either change is considered merely cosmetic or do I have to have written permission for doing this?
