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?
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.
