Here are some useful tips for occupants who would like to revamp their rented home but are quite hesitant to bring up the subject with their landlords.
For some tenants, the feeling of not being permitted to revamp your home is a common concern, especially once you have been living in that property for quite some time.
However, a lot of tenants are not aware that landlords are often keen to pay for minor renovations, for instance; re-painting the walls.
Long-term lease is increasing in popularity as both landlords and their tenants have the security of a longer agreement and reduced fees for agencies.
Occupants can use this trend to their benefit and can be amazed at how willing many landlords could be to this certain request.
Also, if you have been a fine tenant for a considerable length of time, in that case landlords won’t have any trouble with placing some money towards decorating fees if you present to do the task yourself.
Requesting major renovation is highly unlikely, but small re-touches to make your home feel more cozy are quite suitable.
With many occupants being newly graduates, they have often collected some of their own furniture which they would prefer to use in their property than the second hand furnishings provided by their landlords.
It’s a good initiative to raise this matter before you move in to a property, and to make sure that the landlord has given you consent before getting rid of any unnecessary furniture.
