In London, long-term rent is common and tenancies may last up to two years and can be prolonged for as long as five years. It means that if you are looking for a home to rent for such a long period of time, it almost equals to buying a home, at least emotionally.
Approach your new temporary home
Therefore, you have to approach your new temporary home search seriously and with full responsibility. And it would be wise to ask a trustworthy estate agent for assistance. With us, finding a property in the UK is easy and comfortable. And you can relax when your dream rental is found because the experienced agents will do the rest of the job for you. For example, they will not forget to enquire about the safety measures in your rented home. The agents will for sure check if utilities are separate from rent or if they go together, and will ask landlord about electricity rating, so that you will have a clear picture of the future utility bills. Sometimes the gas and electric details are included in the listing information, so it is important to double check it still at the stage of viewings.
Sign a paper
Now it comes to the contract. The last thing you should do is sign a paper that you don’t fully understand. Make sure that each point of the tenancy agreement is absolutely clear to you. If there is anything that you’re not quite sure about, your agent will be there to ask.
