Landlords tend to hide the faults of their rental properties, hoping to find good tenants for it. However, as tenant, there are a number of things you need to inspect before renting a property. Some of these are:
- Checking for Bug Infestations; as closed homes can often become an abode for these annoying little critters.
- Checking for Availability of Water; because unclean water and leaky faucets can be a big problem for tenants later.
- Checking Doors, Windows and Locks; to ensure that each of them open and close perfectly.
- Checking the Home Appliances; items like stoves, oven and refrigerator, etc.
Most homes are rented on a yearly basis, so your careful inspection is needed to ensure that you rent the best home possible.
