If you don’t ask, you don’t get!
In episode 3 of our renting podcast, Phil Spencer shares his guidance on how to secure a rental property.
Before signing the lease on a rental property, it’s worth negotiating anything that you aren’t happy about or that you think requires the landlord’s attention.
Do you know the history of the property? Is the price reasonable? Have you read the agreement properly? There are so many things that you need to consider as a potential tenant in order to make informed decisions and more agreeable negotiations.
Phil and his co-host, Chris Ducker, discuss how the terms on rental properties aren’t always set in stone and the importance of going through all the information you have with a fine-tooth comb.
Negotiating isn’t just for when you’re buying a house, it works on rented properties too, as long as you know how to go about it.
