Second thoughts come storming in when you start thinking about selecting the right house. Needless to stay, it will become a place where your days will begin. You better make it worth a lifetime!

An adrenaline rush hits thinking of unpacking in the new home. But, will life be better there? Or, what if it is unhygienic?

I remember, the time when a client who was looking forward to changing his apartment because of bed bugs.

Well, his story left me appalled. We can call it his carelessness or bad luck, but some things better are checked thoroughly. It is not easy to shift, you see! it’s exciting for once, you wouldn’t want to do it every other month.

No, I am not asking you to be whiskey serious, keeping the excitement at bay.

However, be a little conscious, just to be on the safer side and not end up frustrated.

Let me share with you the 5 major aspects you should check before renting an apartment:

1. The landlord’s policies and lease terms:

1 (1)

Well, when it was me searching an apartment for rent, it was decades ago though, there weren’t as many policies as there is today. You need to check with the landlord, about what are the constraints there are. Check with the roommate, and other people living around.

What is the down payment/security deposit, besides that, what is the lease term?

How many people can be accommodated in one room? Are pets allowed? How long before do you need to intimate the landlord about leaving the place?

There are certain aspects you should be crystal clear about, prior to deciding on renting one house.

You can check for all the options around, and jot down the various pros and cons of each place considering your personal priorities.

2. Cleanliness:

This one is of peak importance for anyone. Even if you are messy yourself, you wouldn’t want mosquitos and insects taking over your place. You are only paying for yourself, no?

Besides, check the sanitation, the drainage system, the flooring, the water amenities, the doors, the roof for any leakage and everything.

Yeah, in my experience, check the matrices as well, if provided.

Watch how spacious the place is, how many beds can be arranged comfortably and the almirahs.

Yeah, don’t forget to ask about a maid, who can manage the cleaning if you can’t.

3. Needing a rental agent:

In the years of experience, we have in the field of real estate consultancy and broker services, we have dealt with numerous issues from people who preferred online search over expert advice. I wouldn’t want to comment on that, you should consider hiring a rental agent/consultant.

Evaluate how much it would cost, and make your decision. Feel free to contact us for any sort of guidance in that matter.

4. Utilities:

This one is peculiar, as there would be some utilities paid and some embedded in your rent.

Check, how much on an average each amenity will cost?

For instance,

You shouldn’t avoid the fact that you own an automobile, or if not, there is a possibility that you would.

For that matter, it becomes Cardinal to check for the parking space there is.

If you are renting a single room, in a place, this one can be a little problematic. However, whilst renting a full fledged apartment, mostly this is provided.

See if the sockets work properly and are the placement in your convenience.

5. Commutation:

See how well is the house is connected with market, your workplace, and other places. you wouldn’t want to pay more than what is feasible in commuting.

Most places are a far-far away land, certainly, it isn’t a good idea considering those.
