I wanted to come in early August to have some time to settle in and adjust, but I'm realizing that most leases seems to start on 9/1.
If the previous tenants are leaving before 9/1 you guys can work something out for you to move in earlier.
PROTIPS FOR EVERYONE (lived in the area for a while, so I've been through the impending shitshow before):
1) If you're getting furniture from Ikea ORDER IT SOON(ish) or else there won't be any delivery slots available for that weekend
2) Secure movers ASAP. If you're getting a Uhaul or something, make sure whoever is driving is fond of insane traffic on crowded, narrow streets, and knows how to parallel park like a pro
3) The vast majority of apartments around BU (esp in the Allston/Brighton area) don't have elevators (even the ones that are 4-5 stories) and the stairwells are VERY narrow. Keep that in mind when you make moving plans.
