Liverpool Lettings Guide for Renters 

As a potential renter, it is important that you select a reputable landlord and renting agent. Qube Residential follows stringent legal, professional, and ethical benchmarks with total transparency, helping you avoid unexpected expenses during your tenure. We recommend thinking about your specific criteria before you start looking at Liverpool lettings. Think about:

  • The area where you’d want to live.
  • Think about your ‘must have’ list: what do you need?
  • What is your budget limit? Would you be willing to pay extra for the right home?
  • For how long will you require housing? Is this a temporary fix or a long-term fix?

Our advice

Allow for council tax and the cost of the utilities, which you will almost certainly have to pay. Allow for a “cash cushion” in the event of an emergency. Whether you are starting your search online or at your estate agent’s Liverpool office, a lettings consultant will take you on viewings to see the property in person if you’ve found one or more homes that suit your criteria.

Our Best Viewing Advice for Liverpool Lettings

  • Look for storage space within wardrobes and cabinets, but remember that if someone is currently living in the property, respect their personal possessions.
  • Before moving in, remember to notify your agent of any maintenance problems.
  • This tip is especially important if you work from home or need access to the internet. Inquire about phone coverage, cable/ satellite dish, broadband access, and electrical plugs.

All landlords must furnish an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for all new tenancies in any property they rent out as of October 2008. This certificate assigns a grade to each house based on variables such as loft insulation, double glazing, boiler age, and efficiency.

The Inventory

The inventory is a complete account of the property’s contents and condition when you move in. Any danger of problems at the rental conclusion will reduce if both parties agree that the inventory is correct at the start of the tenancy. As a result, we urge that you double-check the inventory before signing.

Inspections of properties

Your landlord’s investment in the property you’re renting is significant, so they may schedule visits to meet with you and verify that everything is in working order just a few times a year. Of course, if something breaks or needs repairing, the landlord will come to the property more frequently to ensure that it remains in excellent working order for you to stay. Both renters and landlords must attend the visit.
