If your living arrangements are not permanent you can save your money by just renting an apartment. So what’s next after you move your boxes to your new apartment. So do you double check that you are getting the best renting experience ? So you could start by just avoiding these common mistakes that people do.
Even though you are not the owner of the apartment , the things inside is your own belongings including you. So you got to make sure that all are safe. The first and foremost thing is always lock the doors and also secure your windows. So you could just ask your owner to install a peephole so that you could see who is on the door.
You just cant tell how long you will stay in that apartment you just rented. Just don’t over decorate the place . You might never know when you will leave the place. The more thing you do the more you need to box it out.
3.Avoid Permanent Changes
Drilling holes, Painting walls etc are considered to be permanent. So you got to ask permission to do so. These changes cannot be undone. So be careful while you are doing these things.
Since you are not the owner of the apartment you just cant be careless. Treat the apartment like yours. If you drop some stain on the carpet or on the wall it will stay there for long. So Make sure that you are careful.
What will you do if you get a small crack on the window. Will you avoid it ? Yes. Will you avoid it if its your apartment? no !!!. That’s it. Even the little damage can cause you problems in the future.Always remember the proverb-”A stitch in time saves nine !!!”
6. Not Getting Renter’s Insurance
Do you insure your car and your health ?? If so why not for renter’s insurance. Most people don’t care to do it unless its too late.
Clean you apartments from time to time. This is very much important and shouldn’t be missed out. Regular cleaning can save you from many diseases for you and your children. So find some time for doing the same.
8.Notify Problems to Owner
Don’t forget to notify the problems in your apartments to the owner. So a simple problem can lead you to a bigger one if you don’t do that in time.
9. Wasting Money on Utilities
So if you don’t pay attention on wasting money on utilities its a big problem. You are just washing out your hardly earned money. Switch off your bulbs ,fan and air conditioners after use. It could save you from some bills. Energy is so precious so always save energy.
Cheers…. Happy Living
