When you view a property to rent, it pays to be as organised as possible. Our rental viewing checklist below should provide you with basic questions to ask and things to look out for at the property.
Whether you are viewing a house or a flat, it could be your home for the foreseeable future, so be prepared and make a rational assessment of the property.
Although you're going to be renting a house or a flat rather than buying it, remember that it will be your home for the foreseeable future. Of course you'll have an instant emotional reaction to any property, but you should balance this with a rational assessment of the potential of living in the property, including the local area and amenities, the condition of the property both inside and out and the costs that come with living in it.
Obviously, your own priorities will vary depending on whether you're viewing houses, flats, studio flats or just rooms, but the checklist should act as a basic guide to help you keep all of your bases covered.
