Some questions I can think of..... First decide what you want, make a wish list. How much can you afford to spend on rent? Will improvements made help you get a discount on rent from the landlord? What happens if something breaks? Does the owner have homeowners insurance? (you will need your own renters insurance) If you want out of the lease, what are the conditions?

Can an ex claim possession of your house by renting it for 2 years and then moving but leaving her furniture in the house?

No. If the house is also in her name she does have a part ownership of the house and you will need to go to court to remove her name and buy her out. If she isn't on the deed and has been renting leaving her items in the house is not a claim of ownership and she is actually preventing you from renting the house again. You could take her to small claims court for the rent since she left furniture in the house and that means she is still there. Therefore, she owes rent.
