A tenant guide to renting a property

July 4, 2016

Moving into a new home is an exciting time, but there is also much to think about and become familiar with! It will take time to get to know your new local area and your new home, however if you are a tenant then you also need to know what is expected of you and what you can expect from your landlord.

In order to remove any confusion about the process involved in renting a property and who is responsible for what, Northwood have produced an easy-to-understand guide which contains all the key information, and helps answer any questions you may have. It covers, in general terms, the things you will be responsible for as a tenant, such as paying utilities, cleaning and general maintenance. This guide also answers any questions you may have about who to contact in an emergency, and what kind of changes your landlord will need to be made aware of.

Everything you need to know, from completing the inventory prior to moving in, right through to final inspection of the property when you check out and the return of your deposit is covered in this step-by-step guide. Once you are familiar with your tenancy, all that remains is to explore your new neighbourhood and enjoy your new home!

Please note that there are separate guides for Scotland and England & Wales due to differences in legislation.
