What makes the perfect tenant?
Having a positive relationship with your landlord is important when renting a property.
But what are the best qualities to have as a tenant?
One of the most important things to consider is your payment. Rent should be paid on time every month, and you should pay in full whenever the rent is due. If there comes a point when you can’t pay, you should stay in touch with your landlord so it can be resolved.
Three more tips to help you become the perfect tenant:
Check your credit score
Ensure you are financially responsible by getting a credit check. If you are responsible when paying bills, the chances are, a landlord will trust you to pay your rent on time too!
Get a reference
A reference check gives your landlord a good idea about whether you will be a suitable tenant.
This will provide key information on your employment history and ability to pay rent, as well as any previous dealings you have had with other landlords.
Meet potential landlords
It’s important you have a good relationship with your landlord, so meeting them is essential. Furthermore, it’s a great opportunity to ask any important questions face-to-face.
