When changing the accommodation you and your family want to move not just to a new but a better place. This of course, means that you will have to make a serious research on what kind of places the market offers, on what price and under what circumstances. We all know that there are many wonderful looking places, perfectly located and so on, but they are usually pretty expensive. So, you should look for the perfect balance between price and overall quality.
Look for the condition of the place. Are there all the necessary kitchen appliances such as microwave, cook, fridge and etc. Some people have appliances of their own and this is not a problem for them but if you are not among these people you'd better look for a place that secures them.
Ask the landlord about the contract. The clauses that determine the paying dates should be clearly mentioned. Also, look for a text that says something about cleaning. If the property owner do not provide cleaning you will have to hire a pre tenancy cleaners to deal with the stains, dirt, smells and ets, before actually moving into your new place. This of course, costs money, so if it is not provided by the owner you will have to pay for it.
Before moving, make a list of several places that match your requirements and try to compare them. You can also make some videos of the places in order to show them to your family. Let them help you. After all you will not live alone in this place.
So, following these several simple, but actually very important steps, you will be able to choose the best possible place for you and your family to live.
However, if you like a particular place very much, but the owner does not provide it clean, do not worry. Book it and call the pre tenancy cleaner company. They will solve your “dirty” problems, so you to be able to move to a perfectly suitable accommodation.
