While visiting a rental property, most of the tenants speak less and their future owner continues to tell about the do’s and don’ts they need to follow if they choose to stay in his apartment. Although it is not a compulsion that only the owner will speak and the tenant just shake his head and listen all the valid and invalid points silently. While you are visiting to an apartment do tell the owner about your likes and dislikes. Also tell them that you too have some priorities that are quite much different as compared to them. Like the things which your future landlord will appreciate and mark them as the best one are long lasting, durable and cheap opposite to his you like the things to be nice overall.
If your future landlord tells you that he might do a bit of work before your move in, this is the great time to share what you want and what you don’t. Ask them to share which types of work they are suppose to do and share your expectations with them as well, regarding the same work. Before you move in to a new apartment tell your landlord about the do’s and don’ts he should follow while brushing up the apartment for you, in this way you and your landlord will work with the mutual understanding that will help you both to make your relationship and stay smoother.
Here is the complete list of do’s and don’ts that you must tell to your landlord:
While you are investing in tiles make sure that it must be something that last longer and look good but it must be something else that linoleum please!
May be you like that white paint but I really don’t, and if you are painting it for a long time I am sure your upcoming tenants after me will also don’t love that paint as well. When all the rest colors like beige and cream costs the same as the white paint do try something else.
No one can keep the white grout looks pristine so it’s better to go with something darker so it will look intentional.
Shower Head & Faucets
If you are not planning to do a bathroom overhaul, you can still update with cheap and easy things, shower head might be a good idea. Similarly, new faucets will make the kitchen or bathroom feel fresher.
Make sure while you are fixing the light of my future temporary home don’t use those overhead lights, they are not only just outdated but they are annoying too.
Please remove the carpeting, carpets in rental apartments feels like using someone else’s towel. And don’t invest to put a new one as well, more or less the condition of the new one will also become worst after couple of years. Instead of invest in carpets you can improve something else.
You must tell your landlord all this, not only verbally but even in written, write a proper mail and mention all the things explained above you can also add something else than this if you find it necessary and affordable as landlord point of view.
