A guide to help you with the process of renting a house or flat
The current housing market has made renting property an increasingly important part of the way we live now. House prices have outstripped wages significantly, making it difficult to get on the property ladder, so renting can often be the best option.
Property for rent doesn’t simply appeal to tenants who may be waiting or hoping to get onto the property ladder, but it also offers flexibility for those downsizing or moving into a new area. It isn’t uncommon for estate agents to arrange viewings for potential tenants that include everyone from young singles moving into their own place for the first time to mature couples who are downsizing.
Although renting gives you greater flexibility than owning a property, it still takes time and money to find the right place and to move in, so it is worth putting some careful thought into finding somewhere that will suit you.
