Tips for Renters
Choose the right property and renting can be a pleasure. Here are a few tips to help you decide which property would best suit your needs & take some stress out of the experience.
- Do your research & make sure the location you rent in has good proximity to amenities, facilities and transport options.
- Spend a bit of time when inspecting properties to check such things as street noise, water pressure, aspect, heating methods etc.
- Do a full inventory. Once you are renting a property, note any faults or problems. Pay attention to the condition of carpets and soft furnishings, cabinetry etc. If you do spot something wrong, make your Colonial State Realty property manager aware of these faults in writing as soon as possible.
- Contact your property manager if there are problems. A good landlord will appreciate knowing if something needs repairing. If cracks appear in the ceiling, the washing machine stops working or if you start to notice unpleasant odours, please let us know so we can make plans to rectify the problem.
