Have you thought of moving any time soon? And hoping you will have a better landlord this time around?
Well, your potential landlord is thinking just the same and hoping he will have a better on the next tenancy.
As letting agents in Newport, we’ve been tenants and landlords ourselves. We know how important it is to build a lasting relationship at the very first meeting.
“The early bird catches the worm” – With everybody’s busy schedule every day, arriving 15 or 30 minutes before the scheduled property viewing will save time and effort. This will give the landlord an impression that you’re on time with all other things.
Smile – It’s the window to your soul. What the landlord sees from you will bounce back at you. Even if you’re naturally shy, your smile can trigger a comfortable setting.
“Honesty is the best policy” – Be true to your landlord-to-be. It’s one way of building a relationship of trust with your landlord. Let him know what concerns you may have so it will be settled before tenancy.
References ready – With the first three tips, this one makes it easier for you and the landlord to finally start the tenancy immediately.
Ask, ask, ask – Before you finally get to ink the contract, ask about what you are not sure about. If a thought or a question has been running in your mind before and during the viewing you can ask the landlord to clear things up.
Having these tips, you are now prepared to meet your potential landlord.
