  • What Is A Rent Guarantor?

    There are a number of reasons why a tenant may need a rent guarantor and the request for one can be made either by the landlord or the letting agent handling the rental. If you have been asked to find yourself a rent guarantor, or asked to be one, but aren’t entirely sure about what they are and what they do, you’re in the right spot.  This post will tell you all you need to know. Before we get into the finer details of rent guarantors and what’s expected of them, let’s first answer the most basic question of all...What is a rent guarantor? What is a rent guarantor? As one might expect, a rent guarantor is exactly that: someone who is willing to guarantee the rent will be paid should the tenant fail to do so. Rent guarantors do not, however, have to be individuals (although they commonly are...Hello, parents 👋🏻), as rent can also be guaranteed by a company, charity, or institution.

  • Most Common Things Movers Wished They Had Researched Better

    Buying a home is a complicated matter and there are many considerations to take into account before choosing the right home for you. No-one has a crystal ball, though, and sometimes things that you considered important become less important once you have moved in and things that you didn’t really worry about suddenly become a big issue. In this article we will take a look at the things that home movers wished they had researched better before choosing their new home. Finances One thing that always seems to surprise people is the costs associated with moving. There are the obvious costs like how much deposit needs to be saved and how much the mortgage will cost but many people don’t do their homework properly and miss some of the more hidden costs like reservation deposit for a new build, stamp duty, conveyancing fees and potential costs for non-standard searches or work, surveys and even the cost of moving or storing furniture. These can add up to a large sum of money and it is important that as a potential purchaser, you fully research all potential costs before starting the process.

  • Tenants' contents insurance: The 5 need-to-knows

    Here are our top tips to help you get a policy that's right for you.  If you, your partner or family rent the home, simply buy standard contents insurance. Let's be clear: tenants' contents insurance is NOT a specialist standalone policy that's different from the one you take out if you're a home owner. So if you're a family renting out an entire house or flat –  it's generally a straightforward process to pick a policy. It's only if you're an individual (or couple) renting a room in a house-share or flat-share that you'll need to check a few key extra conditions tailored to your circumstances, see our next point.  If in a flat-share, you might have to work a bit hardr to get cover If you're in a lat-share, there are usually two categories you would fall under when trying to arrange insurance – you either insure the whole flat (or house) with your flatmates or just a room within a flat/house. Sharing a rented home with non-family members usually boosts the chances of damage, theft or items going missing simply because the numbers of different people entering and leaving the property is treated as a much higher risk especially with communal events, eg, a party or celebration – with a higher premium to pay. Because of this insurers will treat you as a greater risk. Not all insurers are happy to insure you if you're renting just a room in a house-share or flat-share, or if you're a non-family group on a joint policy when insuring a whole house, so you could find the numbers offering a quote lower than usual.
