If you are going for renting property in Edinburgh, you will have to choose from these two choices. You can deal with either with a private landlord or through a property agent.

Let’s first have an introduction that what is the difference between dealing with a private landlord and a private agent.

Dealing with a private landlord in Edinburgh: Dealing with private landlord means that you are going to make settlements or deals regarding your property matters with an unknown person. Obviously it can be a risky venture for you because you cannot predict about the person with whom you are not familiar before. Private landlords are not associated with any trade association. So, if you chose private landlord while buying property, there is a tendency that you may have to bear the loss in future.

Dealing with a property agent in Edinburgh: Many property agents are registered with professional, trade bodies such as the Associations of residential letting agents. Hiring and getting the services of property agents is costly because these agents charge a fee for providing you their services. But the mental contentment, convenience and feeling of security that you will get is much more valuable than the amount of money you will pay. These bodies abide by specific rules of practice which will make you secure and safe. Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the National Association of Estate Agents are bodies that are nationally approved letting.

Viewing of the property:

After getting the knowledge about both types of properties, you will select one which suits you or which you would like to select, it depends upon your choice. Next step is to view the property. If you have selected, the private landlord then you have to arrange it with him. Otherwise if, you have arranged a property agent then that the agent will make certain to present you with the viewing of the property. You should fully avail this opportunity of the viewing of the property and check the property thoroughly and in a satisfactory manner.

Take the tour of the whole property and check everything there. Check ventilation system like windows; check roofs and ceilings check the wiring of the whole property. An important thing is to make sure that building is insulated in this way you can reduce the cost which you will have to pay in terms of utility bills like gas, electricity bills etc.

You should check the washrooms check taps, shower and flush systems. They must be in the right order, to avoid further problems. Ask the agent for the gas safety certificate and instructions for operating equipments. There should be enough space for the storage.

Security of the property is the fundamental need, hence take proper care of security issues and check whether the security system of the building is satisfactory or not. Visit whole area get information about the neighbors.

The building which you are, going to rent must have sufficient place for the parking of your vehicle in a secured place. Proximity to schools, college, universities or work place must also be reserved in mind, so that you may not face any trouble in the future. Shopping centers and departmental stores must also be near to your house.

Once you checked all above and many other such issues you can shift to a new place without any worry. So, you should check and resolve all such matters before moving so that you will not feel sorry on your decision.
