Tips for Renting a Property

Here are some tips to help you when looking to rent a property:

  1. Do your research on the area, the best way is to walk around as it will give you a better feel for it.
  2. Take your time when viewing properties. If you find somewhere you like don’t just give it a ten minute once over. Check everything carefully and work out whether it has everything you need like central heating, a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and freezer?
  3. Make a checklist to take with you when viewing properties you really like.
  4. Be a prompt payer – Make sure you set up direct debits or payments properly. Your landlord is much more likely to respond quickly to any issues you may have if you always pay your rent on time.
  5. Do a full inventory. If you don’t go through everything with a fine-toothed comb, then you are leaving yourself open to cash being taken from your deposit. In your first few days in the property make a note of anything missing or not right and let us know as soon as you can.
  6. Tell us of any problems as soon as the arise. The sooner we know about them, the quicker something can be done to sort them out.
