As any student who has rented property before he knows, starting with the school year, the paid housing deposit will never be fun. But what we have?
With this in mind, we have united our top councils to help you make sure.
How to get a full deposit back
Before you move on:
Take pictures of everyone in the house
Photographing when you leave, make sure you have a visual report on how you left your home, but what's more clever, it's taking pictures.
So, if the landlord says the big stain on the living room carpet was caused by you and your friends, but you.
If you're lucky, your landlord or the real estate agent can make a decision to hire these guys are completely impartial, and if you're lucky enough to have your race and race, you don't have to worry about taking pictures of yourself.
But if not, it's the best
Ask about stocks
Your landlord needs to have a checklist of everything.
Not all homeowners will offer residents a copy of the inventory when they move, or if not.
The key must have a closing view to the storeroom when it is moved. Make sure all the tenants know what's owned by the landlord and take care of these things so they don't complain about the move.
Again, your landlord or the real estate agent can hire a third-party inventory company to build the inventory when you move and log off.
While these people are impartial (they will not accept the parties to the dispute, they will simply call it the way they see it).
Check the lease agreement
This may sound like one of those annoying things that you always read, but never do (as none of the conditions and conditions ever), but.
The terms of the contract are very different from one lessor or from the real estate agency to the next, and the last thing you want is to cling to something that can be avoided by simply reading what you are signing!
Verify that you have read the list.
Some contracts may, for example, indicate what you need to give.
Make sure your deposit is protected by law
Since April 2007, all private landlords are required by law to deposit your deposit into an organization licensed by the government. This ensures that the money you pay as a deposit remains a deposit, and that homeowners can't unfairly keep your deposit when you leave.
When you sign contracts for a home, it is important that you ask your landlord or the real estate agent to prove that your deposit is safe with one of the government's deposit charts.
If you want to be faithful, you can even send them a letter asking you to confirm.
You can also find out if your landlord has submitted your deposit or did not contact your deposit box sites directly, armed with yours.
They should be in a position to tell you if your deposit on their records or not.
As long as you live there
Think about replacing
Accidents happen, and let's face it-who really can take a whole school year without dropping a plate or destroying a shower curtain?
It says that all these things cost money-and they're worth it.
In the same way, if this is something that you cannot replace (be it too expensive or too much work, for example), place it with your landlord as soon as possible-do not leave it until the day you walk out of here!
Ensure that you pay all accounts
Payment of all accounts in full is important for two reasons:
first of all, it should help you;
secondly, having settled your accounts in full, it is a big step to repay the deposit. As the owner of the property, the landlord will be the one who will pay for it, if you don't pay, and if it comes to that, they will take the money from your deposit.
Also, saving on top of your accounts also ensures that the credit rating will not be affected negatively.
Invite the landlord
If you have an inspection on your holiday, you can invite the landlord.
Most homeowners will appreciate that you take the initiative to make sure you leave their property in good Nick, and you would rather it than charge you.
If they agree that the house looks good that day, you have a great case to get the deposit back.
Their advance solution will also allow you to personally take a personal note of your case if they choose any questions that you think were already there when your arena started.
When you're moving
The sequence of the move dates
I'm keeping you in the mass, so you'll be in a state.
In addition, you can also be present with any tests, which means that you are all given the opportunity to express your views on any problems that may arise.
Clean the house thoroughly
The cleaning of the house before you leave may sound like sound, but it's often easy to look at it, because you're used to the way home is warts and everything.
You could get used to a small ecosystem that grows in your refrigerator, but your homeowner won't take too kindly to this-and this sort of thing that will inevitably stop you from returning a part of your deposit back!
A full year of student life may carry the damage to the house, and while common wear and tear are understandable, it is necessary to make sure that the homeowner does not return to the house.
As we approach the end of the year, by the end of the year, it is best.
Lock the house
That's what you're supposed to be.
There is a chance that the property may be vacant in the summer months, if it is usually a student house, and it would be a nightmare to find that the property was damaged after you left because you didn' t shut it properly
Student houses usually come with multiple sets of keys, so make sure that everyone is responsible for returning their own (some agencies charge high fees for non-return)!
Check the state of the house again
When you feel that the house is clean and stylish, and that the furniture is all in one piece, gather together with your pleasers and have a good old one around together
The more you have an appearance, the greater the probability that you will see something that your landlord can pick up. It's better
If you have a checklist or a checklist since the beginning of the year, go through it together to make sure you didn' t miss anything. This may take some time, but we'd say it's worth it if it means getting your deposit
Throw some garbage
It's easy to save a lot of things in a year, but whatever you do, make sure you're clear of the house before you leave!
This includes the release of food residue from the refrigerator and cleaning up all of yours.
In this case, if your apartment has prepaid electricity, the power is likely to go down after you release this property and stop it, that is.
Also use your weekly collections of garbage and recycling as an opportunity to get rid of anything that you do not take with you. Homeowners or local agents are likely to look at you for everything they want to get rid of, and that means you won't get a full deposit back.
Don't worry, if you have missed a day for your home, local authorities always have a recycling center where you can go to the ditch.
Know your rights as a tenant
The important thing is to make sure you are.
Once you have taken over, you should receive a letter (or e-mail) that declares any proposed deductions from your deposit, if any, and the reasons for each
Legally, homeowners do not have the right to withdraw money from your deposit without discussing them with you first, and which organization holds your deposit, will hold on your money until this happens.
They will also hold the deposit until then.
The decision will be made on the basis of information and evidence provided by both the lessee and the lessor. The decision of the rental company is final, and they will also be responsible for deciding how much money will be deducted from the deposit.
The landlord or the real estate agency.
Store your deposit in a security scheme.
When I moved out of the old apartment, the report of the losses said there was no more in the bathroom, and that when we moved, we'd have to pay to replace it.
I immediately contacted the agent and indicated that the ibn was still there and was visible in one of the pictures included in the report.
Then the agent corrected the report, and we received a full deposit!
