TENANT'S GUIDE

FINDING A PLACE TO RENT

WHAT PROPERTY SHOULD I LOOK FOR?

First of all, think carefully about the type of property you'd like to rent and which best suits your lifestyle.
For example, if you are only there during the week, a small place might do just fine.  If security is important, then a ground floor flat may be out. If you have a car, then a parking space is a must.

Do you want furnished or unfurnished accommodation or would something that's just part-furnished be okay? Often it doesn't make much difference to the rent.

If it's furnished and you are sharing with others, do you trust them to look after the furniture - because you may lose some or all of your deposit to pay for damage even if they are responsible for it?

 

Other key questions to ask yourself:​​

  • Is a purpose built shower essential or can you make do with a shower attachment in the bath?

  • What facilities are there for washing and drying clothes?

  • Does the property have all the appliances you need?

  • Do you need a garden?

  • Are you prepared to share with someone else - if so, could you share with a live-in landlord?
