Tips for getting a good furnished house to rent

Finding a good furnished house to rent is not a walk-in-the-park nowadays. There’s a host of things to consider before you can comfortably settle in your new home. This is true for most areas across the UK and it’s getting harder as the rental market grows due to migration and population growth.

Some of the factors to consider are the monthly rental costs, the agreement, the location, the general condition of the house and who the landlord is. The rental charges will usually reflect the location and the more expensive it is, then the likelihood that it is a good property. Also, the challenge will be even greater with an already furnished house which most people are looking for.

When property viewing you should look at the furniture, linens, kitchenware and other furnishings and ask the landlord if they are part of the rental package.

These are some tips to follow as you search for a furnished house to rent:

  1. Determine before-hand what you want in terms of furnishings and search for a house that fits your profile
  2. Search across a wide range of platforms and media including the Web, newspapers, magazines, and local papers. The wider your search, the greater the chance of success because some tenants are just not experienced at searching for property
  3. Make a list of the houses you like and check that they have the basic appliances and the furniture you need for a comfortable stay.
  4. Allot enough time for the viewing so that you will have sufficient time to check everything and ask any questions
  5. Ensure that none of the important items are damaged or have defaults by doing some thorough review.
  6. Move quick if you’ve found the property you like and place a deposit.
