Passionate. Professional. Transparent.
Regarded as one of the leading estate agents in Poole, we have a large choice of available properties. Our team advise the latest innovations to ensure you’re given the appropriate facts. You can be assured of a friendly and professional service at all stages of your property search as well as throughout the term of your tenancy. Yet until then, here are 3 simple Ps to ensure you’re on the straight and narrow when it comes to moving into a rented house.
1. Prepare your finances
Calculate what you can and can’t afford on a monthly basis. You need to consider council tax and utilities, such as gas and electricity. Plus, any TV packages or rolling telecommunication subscriptions. It’s also worth assessing your general cost of living and whether you can pay for the property you’re viewing. Otherwise, it can prove heart-breaking to fall in love with a house that’s out of your price range. On that note, set aside at least six weeks’ rent to put down as a security deposit. For when you do find a home you’ll be happy with.
2. Peruse our properties
Lovett pride ourselves on having the lowest tenant fees in the area. When you liaise with us in person, we’ll be able to provide further information that might not be listed online. These might cover things like garden maintenance – so it’s always best to ask questions before you’re charged with any violations! Then, assuming you pass the referencing process, we’ll draw up a tenancy agreement. It is vital that you carefully read the agreement before signing. This is a legally binding contract between you and the landlord and must be honoured.
3. Pay the rent
You’ve found the property. You’ve paid the deposit. Ensure you and the landlord have agreed upon a detailed inventory. This will list what was and wasn’t in the property when it was let out. These include any faults with the house too. Come the end of the tenancy, the property will be reassessed. If any deviations to the inventory are found, you might be charged with any damages or lose your deposit. Always ensure that you pay your rent on time and in full. Otherwise, you will breach the terms of the tenancy agreement.
