What You Say

  • This is really important. In most cases you will be asked to sign an assured shorthold tenancy agreement (AST) before your tenancy starts. If there is anything in the contract you are unclear about, seek legal advice before you sign. Make sure any agreements made at the time of the offer are reflected in the contract. The contract should also be supplied with an inventory – this details all the furniture & appliances within the property, as well as the current condition of the property. Make sure you check this and update the agent or landlord with anything that has been missed. This includes things like stains on the carpets and nails in the wall –  you might loose some of your deposit when you move out if you haven’t noted these issues at the start.

  • Bills are an unfortunate reality of renting a home. As a tenant, you will likely be responsible for paying all of the household bills. This may include:
    Gas and/or electricity, Water bills, Council tax, Service charge (only for some properties), TV license (if you plan on watching live TV), Landline phone bill, Contents insurance, Digital TV or satellite TV subscriptions, Broadband bill.
    There can be agreements where landlords will cover some of these bill so it’s always best to check with the agent or landlord. If there are more bedrooms in your house than people, check out getting a water meter as it could save you money.

  • Whether you’re taking a property furnished or unfurnished, you need to check what electrical goods are included in the price, and what condition they’re in. If you need any of these things but they aren’t supplied, you’ll need to factor the cost of purchasing these into your decision.

  • Finally, it’s important to makes sure you clean your home regularly from the day you move in. It’s not uncommon for landlords and agents to perform regular inspections – make sure you’re always prepared as these can happen with as little as 24 hours notice. To get your full deposit back when you move out, the place will need to be sparkling. If you haven’t been cleaning regularly, long-term damage might have been done to the property and it’ll be harder to get the place up to the high standards required. Before you move out, make sure you know what you need to do to get your deposit back.
