One may call UK to be the home of property-owners but even then there are many looking only for rented houses in UK. One may opt to live in rented accommodation on number of accounts. Probably your stay in particular city is a short term stay either for employment or as a student. Perhaps you are not rich enough to afford your own residence or you don’t like to live in one single accommodation for whole f your life. So there are number of circumstances that lead you to live in a property to rent instead of house of you own.

Previously, for property to rent the very first choice of the people in UK was public sector. But today this option is less availed because there is a long list of persons looking for the same property and you have to wait a lot for your turn. Housing stock in the public sector is also getting decreased day by day. Besides the choice of the people is also changed, they wanted to live in privately rented houses. They chase the house either directly contacting the landlord or hire the services of letting agents.

The difference between the letting agents and accommodation agencies is that the latter’s business is to rent shared houses in UK i.e. rooms in a flat or multiple occupancies are available for rent. For this purpose they will ask you to pay them the fee but this fee is going to be paid only once when they have get you accommodated in flat of your choice. As compared to the accommodation agencies, letting agencies deal in the whole property to rent. They don’t charge you for finding you home but they charge the landlord. However, they may ask you to pay them for the paperwork done by them on our behalf.

Taking the property to rent by hiring the services of agencies is although expensive for you yet it benefits you in one way or other. The prime benefit is the security of your money. It guarantees you the refund of the deposit when you left the property provided there are not any damages on your part. This security of your money is maximized when the agency is registered with NALS i.e. National Approved Letting Schemes. The paperwork for renting your selected property is done well within a short time and if there arise any dispute between you and your landlord in future will be settled by the agencies.

Whatever way you choose to rent houses in UK, there are certain things to be paid heed before renting a particular property of your choice. You have to process all the things rapidly but not hastily. Prime locations and quality accommodation is highly chased after by the potential tenants. Once you have selected a property, ask the landlord or the agency to arrange the visit to property at earliest possible.

Ask your letting agent to arrange the visit only for you and not with all other tenants looking for the same property. Take someone with you for security purposes and also to have a second opinion. Inspect the property thoroughly. Visiting the property in sunlight will give you a better look of the house in UK All things should be check from the condition of the structure of the property to the drainage system

Don’t forget to look around the area. Is it the right place for you and caters to all your needs. Make sure it has easy access to all the amenities i.e. transportation, shopping areas, bars, public parks, etc.

Each and every thing in the house should be well inspected so that you have not to face any problem in the future with repairs. Don’t forget to check the security measures like burglar alarm, fire alarm and CORGI safety Certificates.

When you have find all the thing are in proper working condition go for the lease agreement and enjoy the property to rent in UK.
