02 Sufficient budget

There will be demands on you to pay things such as a deposit as well as a refundable holding deposit which will also be collected up front. You may then also need to consider large things such furniture and white goods once you move in. So bear in mind that you will need sufficient budget to pay for this.

03 Finding the right property

This can be a life changing decision, so don’t rush things, make a list of the most important factors in a property so you are clear what criteria is very important vs criteria you are happy to compromise on. Check out the properties at different times of day and make sure you are not afraid to ask questions throughout the process.

04 Tenancy agreement

Getting a good tenancy agreement in place is an essential part of a landlords obligations and will look to protect all parties involved from the off-set. The agreement should look to outline the obligations and rights for the duration of the tenancy.
