Viewing Properties

The letting market is very busy and incredibly fast moving, meaninig that when a good property comes available on the market it may rent within 24 hours to 48 hours, so being flexible is very important if you do not want to miss out on a property.

Finding the Right Property

When you agree to rent a property and your offer has been accepted, a deposit normally amounts to one month’s rent will be required to reserve the property.  Our property consultant will be reponsible in drafting the lease agreement when required unless the Landlord has his own lease agreement.

A copy of the inventory will be attached to the the lease agreement. Other fees and charges connected to the lease are the security deposit (equivalent to one months rent), plus first months rent.  Agency fees are equivalent to half the first months rent.

Once in the property you have to make sure to look after the property and contact the Landlord or the person concerned should something go array in the property, to avoid having any disputes over damage when the tenancy terminates.

When moving out of the property you should leave the property in tip top condition and report any damage of breakages and remove all your belongings otherwise you will risk loosing part of your deposit.  After all the inventory is checked, utility, internet, television bills are paid and the landlord is happy with the state of the apartment the deposit will be returned back to the tenant.
