View Full Version : Renting a brand new apartment

Hi, I'm about to become a tenant in a brand new apartment (never been lived in). I'm going to be paying 6 weeks deposit.

The agency i'm going through is ARLA registered.

My question is, as it's a new property is there any specific problems I should lookout for? I don't want the landlord to blame any problems on me!

Like what?

The only thing which comes to mind is that the landlord might have too high expectations when you quit the place; ie he might expect to get it back still in brand-new condition - clearly unreasonable and unfeasible - and you might have problems reclaiming your deposit.

I suppose you need to double-check that everything you'd normally expect to be in a home, like a TV aerial, phone line, and probably other stuff, is all present and correct, and that you don't end up having to pay for it.
