Thousands of students, work professionals, and people from different domains move to new cities everyday. Deciding on accommodations could be tough, especially when you are new to this.
There are always things that we don’t remember at the right time so it is a good idea to be prepared when you decide to go apartment hunting in a new city.
Everyone can relate to the fact that we waste a lot of time while inspecting any apartment for renting. There are always some things that we forgot to ask to the landlord and then have to compromise with the given arrangements.
We have created this compact checklist that will help you conduct a thorough rental inspection, before you sign on the dotted line:
- The first thing that everyone should check is the water availability in the apartment. Check for taps, pipes, and other plumbing parameters that may cause any problems in the future. Make sure you have clean water running 24/7.
- Condition of the interior of the apartment also affects you a lot. Look for any kind of cracks, stains, water damage, mold and mildew. Check the walls of every room very carefully so that you will not have any problem living in that place in the future.
- One thing that most people forget to check is the widows. Check if they can be opened and closed easily, and they don’t have any kind of potential problems. Make sure that every window in the room has a screen, especially if you have pets.
- Check for sufficient storage space in the apartment. Open every closets and cabinet to make sure that you don’t have to compromise in terms of storing your belongings
- Plug in something like a phone charger to confirm the electricity in the apartment is working. Check sockets, and outlets to ensure that they are working in perfect manner.
- In order to live peacefully with your new neighborhood, you must visit the property both during the day and at night to get the complete picture.
- Check every appliance in the kitchen of the apartment and make sure that they are standards.
- If you are moving to a new city with your own vehicle, you need to have a place for your cars aough parking spaces. Confirm the gate timings and parking charges.
- Another thing that must not be overlooked is the laundry facilities of the apartment. Ask your landlord about the arrangements and make sure that it is conveniently and safely located.
- Make sure there is ample lighting on the property, in the hallways, and in the parking areas.
