Whether you are looking to buy or rent a new place in Manchester, there are a few things you should always be aware of. Obviously, inspecting the property before signing anything or getting excited about it is always a must, but there might be things to consider that you could have missed out. Here are some tips!
- Check the ceilings: Rainy days are a rather standard part of life in the city, and the last thing you want is a leaking ceiling, which could happen, particularly for houses or last floor apartments, closer to the roof. When you inspect a property you are interested in, check it out on a rainy day if you have the chance, and always look at the corners of the ceiling to see if there is any visible water damage.
- If it seems too good to be true, there might be something off. Make sure the people you deal with are able to offer you absolute transparency on the conditions of the apartment, on the safety of the neighborhood and other vital information that might affect your decision.
- If a quiet environment is vital to you, always try to find some information about your neighbours, or at least see how much their noise will creep into your own apartment...even the perfect place can become a nightmare if there is an ongoing party next door!
