When letting in the UK, you’ll want to view the property during the daylight hours to see how the natural light looks during the daytime. Have everyone letting the property come to see the flat or property. Take someone along to give you a second opinion on the property. Bring a pen and paper to not anything you find such as any areas that need work done or any questions you might have. Take photos of the place if possible to compare this property with others that you see. Ask about the council rates for the property as well as water and sewage rates. Some of this information can be found at www.upmystreet.com. Ask how much it costs to heat the property and what are the electricity bills. Find out about cable and satellite service as well as what the neighbors are like. Ask if there is a ground rent and if there is a maintenance charge.
