I'm moving to Mexico City on August 6, and I'm looking for a one bedroom apartment, preferably furnished, to call home for about a year. I would like to be close to the train line 7, but I'm not very interested in living in Polanco. I heard that the area around the American embassy (Cuauhtemoc) and Napoles are safe and more affordable. I would also be interested in exploring those areas.
Any advice on typical lease agreements, ie security deposit, utilities, minimum length of stay, etc, would be very helpful. I'm used to having to pay a security deposit and utilities are generally included in the rent. Not sure what to expect in Mexico City.
