How do I know if I can afford to rent?

Renting a home involves more than just being able to cover the rent. You may need to consider Council Tax, gas and electricity as well as water bills and any service charges. The Money Advice Service gives you lots of information to help you decide if you can afford to rent a property. We also have a simple calculator that can give you an idea of how much rent you can afford based on your annual salary.

What are my responsibilities as a tenant?

It is your responsibility to make sure the property is kept in good order, and is treated with respect. Whilst you are a tenant, you're also liable for the conduct of anyone else you invite into the property and - if they cause damage, or cause a nuisance to neighbours – ultimately, you'll be responsible.

The terms of your tenancy will include a number of items you are responsible for, including paying your rent on time, the number of people living in your home,behavior, keeping pets etc. Before signing a tenancy you must ensure you understand the legal requirements; if you do not adhere to the terms this may result in us ending your tenancy. Most tenancy agreements are Assured short hold, which effectively means for a prescribed period of time.

What are the landlord’s responsibilities to me as a tenant?

As a tenant you have the right to what is referred to as 'quiet enjoyment' of the property. This means that your landlord or managing agent is not allowed to harass you or arrive at the property unannounced. Furthermore, they are not allowed to enter the property without first discussing the need to enter with you as a tenant.

Again, we would suggest you refer to the proposed tenancy agreement, this will detail the landlords responsibility to you, including their repairs responsibility, rent increases, length of tenancy.

Who is responsible for any damages to the property?

As the tenant you are responsible for looking after the property and if furnished these items as well, if a damage occurs you will be asked to replace this item or could be re-charged.

What is a security deposit

Prior to moving into the property you are required to pay a security deposit. Once you pay your deposit, the landlord or managing agent has a legal obligation to put these monies into a tenancy deposit protection scheme. The deposit will be held by the DPS (The Deposit Protection Scheme) to find out more please visit www.depositprotection.com
