What to consider when looking to rent

There are many reasons why people choose to rent over buying a house. You may choose to rent for the flexibility in being able to move location more easily without the hassle of selling a property. It means lower upfront costs. You have far less responsibility for maintenance and repairs in the house. Whatever your reasons for choosing to rent, there are some important factors to consider to ensure you find a suitable property for you. Here are some key considerations:

Budget

It’s important before beginning your search for a rental property to determine your budget. This should include rent, but also other associated expenses, including utilities, council tax, and home insurance. Security deposits should also be factored in.

Location

The location of the property is key. You should consider places you travel regularly from home, including work and school. It’s also important to consider local amenities including shops and restaurants. If you don’t have access to a private vehicle, make sure to check the public transport links.

Property type and size

You need to decide on the type of property you’re looking for, whether it’s a flat, house, or studio apartment. How many bedrooms and bathrooms are your minimum requirement? If you have any specific features you would like, make sure to include these in your search.

Furnished vs. unfurnished

Are you looking for a property that is furnished or unfurnished? It can be beneficial to have furniture in place when you move in. Alternatively you may already have furniture that you’ll be moving in with you.
