Flatshare Room

Searching For A Flatshare Room

If you are looking for a flatshare room, I will advise that you that try looking at the listings on the Lettings Mall, they specialise in private property rentals and have a good reputation amongst both landlords and tenants who advertise to find suitable properties for all types of residential lettings and commercial lettings.

A flatshare room will sometimes include all the bills and service charges that are incurred by the occupier i.e electricity, gas, water, broadband et al and may be charged on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.

Initially, you will probably be more interested in finding a room in the right location, maybe for work purposes or to be near family or friends or close to a specific facility e,g your university, but when sharing a flat or house it is also important to be confident that you will be able to live alongside your flatmates comfortably and pleasantly on a day to day basis.

It is probably a stereotype but students and young people are likely to have a very different lifestyle to a professional city worker. Ensure you check out attitudes towards cleaning, late nights, entertaining, bringing guests back for a sleepover and cooking arrangements - make sure that you think you will be happy with the expectations of your fellow sharers before signing any agreements.

When arranging private viewings make sure that you keep your basic requirements in mind or better still make a list of the things you will need to cross check as it is easy to be overwhelmed by the decoration or furnishings and later realise that you have not taken notice of the basic facilities in the flatshare room you will be renting.

For example, does the room have access to a TV aerial, a telephone point, or internet access? Does the household bills include the provision of a house TV license or would the housemates be prepared to share the cost of your TV license?

All of these things may be important when you are spending most of your time in your own room - they may not be so important or may be even more important if you expect to spend most of your time in a communal area.

Agreements to rent from private individuals may be verbal or written but you should always make sure that both parties fully understand what they have agreed.

You need to know how you are expected to pay the rent, it could be cash or via a standing order from your bank account. What length of notice period is required when you want to leave? Will you be needing to give references before an agreement can be made? What are the arrangements for having friends around to stay overnight or inviting your friends over for dinner or football.

If there is a garden or balcony do you have the right of use? Can you have a barbeque in the summer in the garden.

By addressing all of these issues at the beginning of the arrangement neither you nor your landlord will be disappointed in the rental of a flatshare room.
