hunni homes Top Tips for Tenants

The more you know about what you want, the easier your search will be.

Before you start looking for a property, make a list of what’s important to you. Consider whether you want a house or flat and which areas appeal to you.

Of course, you’ll sometimes have to trade off one good thing against another. It’s a good idea to divide your wish list into “essential” and “nice to have”, to make these decisions easier.

Here at hunni homes we have a wealth of experience in lettings and can offer you advice at any time, making your property search smoother, speedier and a little bit sweeter.

Things to Consider – Size and Type of Property

What are your basic needs?

  • House, flat or co-living?
  • How many bedrooms are essential?
  • Do you need a spare room?
  • What outside space do you want?
  • Parking needs?

Rental Budget

Set yourself a price range, often if you can move quickly the landlord is more likely to negotiate on price.

Be prepared to make adjustments if there are other benefits: a more expensive house or flat might be in an area with lower council tax, for instance.

A shared co-living space may benefit from inclusive bills, whereas a house or flat may have bills on top of rent.

Work out what is best for you to provide a reliable, consistent payment. 


Once you know what you’re after, it’s time to start looking.

Bear in mind that most landlords are looking for tenants who can move in within 4-8 weeks. If you won’t be ready to move by then, it might be worth waiting.


Once you’ve found a property that you like the look of, we can make a viewing appointment so you can get a real feel for the place.

It’s always best to look around a home in daylight to get the best viewing experiencing.
