Know your criteria before leasing a property

Having a check list before searching for a rental property is a useful tool.

Write your wish list of ‘must haves’ and ‘ desires’ in a property.

For example, what type of heating is preferred, do you need cooling.

Consider if you need to be close to particular amenities, especially schools, public transport.

Look at properties that suit you and or your family needs.

Most advertising of a property will supply basic details such as number of bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas and parking.

It can also be a good idea to visit the area that suits your needs and look at the traffic flow, the other residents and parking, get a ‘feel’ for the area.
