So if any of the issues below are bothering you, pop along for some tips on how to clear things up.

  • Landlord problems
  • Contracts – we can inspect contracts before you sign to make sure you know exactly what you are signing for
  • Housemate problems
  • Utility bills

  • Legal rights 

 

Housing Top Tips!

-       Choose your housemates carefully – remember you’ll be living with these people for at least a year.

-       Visit the property – what sounds good on paper may not be so good in real life. Take a look for yourself and ask about anything you are not sure of.

-       Read your contract carefully – we can check your tenancy agreement if there is anything you need help with.
