Looking after the property you rent, ensuring you adhere to the terms of your Tenancy Agreement and paying your rent on time, will help you to enjoy a smooth and trouble-free tenancy without claims being made against your depost.
The following tips are worth considering:
|1. Pay your rent regularly and on time
We will provide you with a Standing Order to give to your bank for your regular monthly rent payments. You should give this to your bank immediately, or set up standing order online straight away.
|2. Pay your bills
During your tenancy you will be responsible for all utility bills (gas, electricity, water, telephone etc.) and your Council Tax.
Don't forget to visit our Utility Switch service, it may help reduce your utility bills.
|3. Be sure to insure
You are responsible for contents insurance. See www.easilett.com/tenants/tenant-s-guide/insurance for more details.
4. Look after the property
Mould: please, please read this info!
Hanging pictures: If you use hooks then remember you will need to make good and re-paint when you leave. An alternative is to use a product by 3M called Command picture strips, which claim to remove when needed with no damage. See video here.
5. Request permission to keep a pet
You MUST obtain 'written' consent to be able to keep a pet. If you don't then you will be in breach of your tenancy agreement. You can request a pet license here.
6. Periodic visits
If easilett manages your property then we will be visiting the property periodically to check that all is well at the property and that you are happy. We will notify you in advance of these visits and hope you are able to meet with us. Don't worry if you can't, we will send a report to both you and the landlords shortly afterwards.
|7. When your tenancy ends
When your tenancy ends your landlord (or easilett if the property is fully managed) will meet you on the day you leave to inspect the property and take meter readings. This will compare the inventory created when you first occupied the property with the condition of the when you vacate. Any repairs or delapidations caused by you during your tenancy (over and above normal wear and tear) will be charged to you. You will be required to complete a short form at the end of your tenancy, found here.
