FAQS

Who is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the property? 

The landlord is responsible for all maintenance of the property. It is the duty of the tenant to notify the landlord or his agent of any maintenance issues that arise, as soon as possible.

Who is responsible for the water and electricity bills? 

The tenant is responsible for these bills as they will be in the tenant’s name. In some cases, the rent will include utilities, but this will be made clear to you before you move in.

Are pets allowed in the property? 

Usually not, however it depends on the property you are renting and if the landlord has given you permission.

Do I need to insure my personal belongings? 

This is a matter of choice for the tenant, but we highly recommend that all tenants insure their belongings in the event of water damage, fire or theft because the landlord only insures their own contents and the building itself.

Do you accept rent allowance? 

Certain landlords will accept HAP Scheme. However, the landlord will not wait for the tenant to receive the allowance because it can take up to three months to process your application. Therefore, you must be able to afford full rent for this period of time.

Who looks after the TV license? 

The tenant is responsible for the TV license which can be purchased at any post office.

Who is responsible for all refuse charges? 

The tenant is responsible for all refuse charges, unless otherwise stated.
