When you go to rent property in the UK, there are some things you should know beforehand in order to ensure you are getting the best deal possible. You should also ensure that you are legally sound in your contract. Renting is not for the faint of heart, and often times most of us would prefer hospital accommodations. Unfortunately, that is not always possible, which is why we thought it best to give a thorough guideline on what to expect and how to play it smart.
Your Checklist for Renting
The following is just from our experience and the things we think are important to go over beforehand. Everyone's experience is different so make sure you take all of your needs into consideration before you rent a property.
- Is it near where I work?
- If it's not near, is driving/public transport convenient?
- How are the surroundings/neighbourhood?
- Are there supermarkets/shops nearby?
- Are there daycares/schools nearby?
