What Should Students Expect when Viewing a Property in Edinburgh and How to Prepare when Going for a Viewing
When looking for a property in Edinburgh the most important thing is that you should have a clear idea of what you are looking for. Once you have this in your mind only then you can contact a property agent, informing him/her of your choice of accommodation. Alternatively you will only approach the landlords who own such a property.
You must also decide whether you want to rent out a place individually or you want to have a house/flat mate. If you want to have a housemate then you have got to find two things for you, a house plus a housemate perfect for you.
The next step is to find the house.
Viewing of the property:
Most of the letting agents in Edinburgh will take you to view quite a few properties at once. You will be taken with several other students and groups of students who will also be interested in the same property. This will definitely put a lot of pressure on you. Someone else might also be interested in the property you like. Advice is always to go with your chequebook or credit cards. So that you can snap up the property you like. Moreover if you are to have a house/flat mate, you should always take him/her for the flat viewing. This will help save time. If you think a particular property is appropriate, you must still be patient and see some other properties as well. This will give you an idea of the types of accommodation available, their prices etc.
Going for a viewing:
In order to have a stress free viewing you should take into account several factors. Firstly, if you are renting the property in the form of a group or with some friend then you should make sure that they are present at the viewing. You will be able to reach a sensible decision with your group. This will also save time. Secondly, you should always carry a notebook and a pen at a viewing. In this you should make a note of all the things that you need to ask and check with regards to the property. Also you should use this to take notes that will be useful later on. Thirdly, you should always remember to take a camera with you. It can be used to take pictures of all the properties you visited and will help you remember all the properties you liked. Lastly, you should examine the property carefully and ask for gas safety certificate, fire detection equipment, burglar alarm, window and door locks etc.
