SETTLING IN A NEW HOME, NEW AREA AND NEW ACADEMIC YEAR
Adapting to a new living environment (like a new home, new area and new academic year) can be easier for some new home renters. For others, it may not be easier or it may even be frustrating. To manage the settling-in process as a new home renter in a new area in a new academic year, we are working together with new renters on these matters this week.
We will be particularly looking at the things that those who are newly moving in a new home as renters can do to make the process easier while they will be living there and managing their tenancy as agreed with their landlords and or managing agents. This is about looking at property management and maintenance from the tenants’ point of view rather than from the landlords’/ladies’ perspective.
Property management and maintenance from tenants’ perspective
To successfully manage and maintain your new home as new renter, it is advisable to follow the terms of the tenancy agreement and any additional agreements you have made with your managing agents and or landlords/ladies.
There are as well areas of law that new renters need be aware as the tenancy law sometimes does change. If the change occurs and is going to affect their rental situation, then they need to know it. Alternatively, their managing agents and or landlords/ladies would inform them of any changes in the interest of the two contractual parties and their witnesses.
There are benefits in better managing and maintaining a property as a tenant. Just to mention the few of them, it is useful to argue that better management and maintenance by the tenants can help
√ To protect tenants’ deposit and any other money paid as security
√ To stop tenants from any breach of the tenancy agreement
√ To secure their reference for future tenancies
√ To prevent conflicting situations with their managing agents and landlords/ladies
√ To safeguard their credit records history
√ To protect the indoor and outdoor environment etc.
This is so vital in the world where there is online database of bad tenants in the market.
Knowing your new home and new area
This week’s process of working together with new renters in this new academic year goes further as we are going as well to touch upon the things to be aware around your new home and new area.
Moving in a new area means that your need know your neighbourhood and the basics about the local area. Already when putting an offer on your property or before you move in, your letting agents or new landlord/lady would have provided you a profile of vital statistics and key information about the area. If not, you would have yourself done some searches online and via print resources about the area.
It is vital to learn to know the area where you will be living, shopping on daily basis, commuting, using open space and amenities, perhaps doing your education and working there.
Again, this knowledge of your local area can help to protect you, save money, keep you safe and secure, make you be part of the locals and keep you informed and make informed decisions.
