Finding a Flat to Rent in Edinburgh, Where to Start and Viewing Property

By Graham Lamont Subscribe to RSS | February 28th 2012 | Views:

A large number of people prefer to rent property these days rather than purchase their own. This is mainly because the quality and range of rented accommodation in Edinburgh is getting better and better. Mostly for working professionals and students renting is ideal, as it offers flexibility. They can easily move to other places. Renting is also a cheaper option, as you will not have to pay any bills or carry out the maintenance work. The landlord will have to deal with all this.

Finding a place to rent

You must rent a property which suites your lifestyle. For example, if you have a car then a parking space is a must. If you have a family then you will have to find an area with schools and good neighborhood. Decide if you want a furnished, unfurnished or semi-furnished property. If garden is essential for you. Look into all these factors to have an idea of the kind of place suitable for you.

Where to start

You can always seek the help of a property agent. They will have lots of properties listed. Further you will be given a personalized service and shown just what you asked for. This way it will be easy for you to decide. Property agents are aware of the local market and will only show you properties which are within your range. Property agents give you security and great peace of mind. Moreover, you can always make use of the internet. There is a wealth of properties listed along with their pictures, location, and prices etc. will give you access to a huge number of homes. You can also find property advertisements in local newspapers. If you are a student you must also look for your university boards.

One there is a particular property that appeals you, arrange for its viewing. If you have a property agent, he will do it for you but if you are dealing with a private landlord then you will have to arrange it with him directly.

Property viewing

You must make the most of this opportunity. Make a checklist before you go. Take a notebook, pen and a camera with you. Make notes during the visit and take pictures of the property. This will help you in reaching a decision later. Check the property’s interior and exterior thoroughly. Check the radiators, locks and see how well insulated the property is. Also see if the area and the property are secure enough.
