  • Budget - how much would you be prepared to pay for the right property?
  • Length of tenancy - how long are you looking to rent for?

You will need to inform your utility providers that you have moved into the property and ensure that all accounts are transferred into your name as quickly as possible.

A copy of the inventory check-in report will be sent to you (usually by email) shortly after move-in. Should you have any comments or questions, they should be raised as soon as possible after receipt.
