House Share To Rent

A Perfect House Share To Rent With Perfect Housemates?

Lets ask ourselves a simple question, what makes a perfect house share? And what are the good points of a perfect housemate?

We will find we have a long list of dos and donts which will vary from person to person as individual expectations vary. We can however say these few things about the perfect house share from previous experiences.

The perfect house share will always be in your most ideal location, may be close to where you work with access to the best transport links and and access to the good shops and shopping centres.

The landlord or estate agent will usually be close at hand either by phone or in person. With estate agents, they may be a phone call away and will always have an emergency 24 hour helpline. With a landlord, he or she may be living on the premises or in an apartment not too far away from the location of the house share.

This ensures that all repair work and maintenance which may be needed on an emergency basis are carried out with out fuss and at the quickest possible time!

The perfect house share will usually have certain amenities and facilities which most of us require to organise our daily routines. These include dishwashers,washing machine, micro wave, television inclusive of duty free TV license, access to wireless broadband, access to a game engine with some games, this is to ensure that all the lads and ladettes in the household have something to wind down after a hard day at work.

In the perfect house share, there's always a cleaner who comes in at least once a week to spring clean every ones room while all our housemates display the highest level of cleanliness keeping the kitchen sparkling clean while ensuring that communal areas including the bath room are always left tidy and spot less without been told what to do.

Of course individual needs vary and if we are the piggish type, then our perfect house share will comprise of a dilapidated building with an unkempt garden, real dirty housemates, plates stacked high in the kitchen and grease marks in the bathroom with mouldy tiling and a single communal bar of soap which no one bothers to use!

Because personality and lifestyles will need to be compatible, if your housemates are students who spend every weekend partying and you work on Sundays, this combination may not be right choice for you.

On the other hand if your housemates are all night workers and only come home to sleep in the day then you will rarely have to spend any time in the same living space.

In what appears to be the ideal house share to rent, all the bills are included with the rent paid and with cleanliness and undamaged facilities you should be able to collect your deposit at the end of your say.

The other most important fact is that housemates must agree on use of the kitchen and the bathroom. This is usually based on peoples daily time tables or routine, and while its easy to arrange times for everyone, in reality sticking to time tables will depend on each house mate.

Can you have friends stay over for days or maybe just your hot new squeeze? That depends on how well you get on with your housemates and how comfortable they are with the idea.

A house share to rent can be an ideal living situation for many people – if they sort out the basics first and you all happen to be compatible or have similar lifestyles.
