Finding A Place To Rent

Following a few basic tips and doing a little bit of pre planning will make your search for a rented home easier.

Before you start to set up appointments to view properties you must decide:

  • What type of property do you need? This includes deciding how many bedrooms you need, will you require parking
  • Decide on a location. Consider the distance to work or college. Is there good transport links? Is the are safe at night
  • Consider how much rent you can afford to pay – Add up all your weekly or monthly expenses and deduct this from your after tax income to get an idea of how much income you have left over out of which you will have to fund your rental payments.
