Tips for finding student lets Plymouth
Here are some helpful tips for finding student lets Plymouth:
- Decide who you are going to live with (this is important as you will be spending time with people in close proximity)
- Decide how much you can afford to spend on rent
- Meet with a property’s current tenants
- Everyone looking to share should attend a viewing
- Decide what you like and don’t like about the property
- Read the rental agreement carefully
- Remember the agreement is a legally binding contract
- Ensure you can meet the rent every month.
These are all important points and it may help to decide beforehand how many bedrooms you want your student property to have – two, three, four or more? These are all available at reasonable rents in areas close to the university.
Type of Plymouth student accommodation you require
Whichever type of Plymouth student accommodation you require, you will also need to consider whether you will want double beds – or a big screen TV? Or a space for bikes – these are issues that will need to be addressed.
Find out too how long the landlord will take to fix issues – this isn’t such a problem when you work with reputable firms such as ours but it’s still best to check.
Finally, paying your rent promptly is really important – non-payment could see you being evicted.
Instead, it’s always a good idea to have someone responsible for collecting the money from everyone and paying the rent on time – it might even be a good idea to create a housemates’ bank account and pay all of your year’s rent into it when your student loan lands!
