#17. Question everything!

on April 20, 2017


From your rights as a tenant to rental payments to if the room is actually fit to live in. Oh believe me, it happens- you sign away your lease thinking oh it should be fine as a first time renter at a uni place.

Nope. They didn’t say the mattress was broken. Or the fire alarms were unscrewed. Ended up paying rent for a place I didn’t move in 2 weeks later XD Lesson well learnt!

Ask to see the room/place before signing away the lease and flag all damages and ask when they will be fixed before signing! Check everything again before signing 😉 You gotta be more super thorough than the condition report they give you. Take of everything even stuff they didn’t 😉 you’re saving yourself from paying for damages you didn’t make.

I was pretty lucky to have awesome coworkers to helped me through my eccentric previous tenant.

But seriously, question everything! =)
