  • Key Tips for Renting
  • Always view a property before paying a deposit
  • Always bring a friend or parent with you when meeting a landlord
  • Ensure you have a rental agreement
  • Always read and understand the Rental Agreement before signing.
  • Always get a receipt for the deposit paid and rent in advance
  • Always make a list of furniture and applicances with the landlord.  Damage or loss of property is a regular reason for losing a deposit.
  • If there are any outstanding repairs, ask the landlord to state in writing that they will be repaired - take photos if necessary.
