5 Things Which You’ve Not Been Told About Renting Flat
Mumbai has always the magic spell of alluring the true fantasist towards her and ensure the fulfilment of their dreams. Those who are honest with their efforts and perseverance the city has always rewarded and acknowledged them and showered success, which inspired others to pick up Mumbai for crafting their dreams. The journey begins once you landed on the city and the first step being managing space for accommodation. Either you may opt for flats for PG accommodations in rent or single room flats for rent in Mumbai, as per your economic situations. Whatever you are opting for, instead of getting carried away by brokers or land – lord’s promises but do check those personally and don’t forget to glance through these aspects too.
Be specific regarding the availability of the basic amenities like running water, electricity, power back – up, gas – pipe line. Before renting the room, the brokers may not be very specific about all these but do ask them. Some societies may provide 24 hrs running water, but there are also many localities where you only get water for half an hour in the morning and are expected to store it for the day. So try to get all these information and plan accordingly to avoid inconvenience.
Maintenance and safety
The room you finalize for accommodation needs to be maintained too and it’s the responsibility of the land – lord. For instance the fix and repairs, paint coat of the room etc. Even the agreement in Mumbai is applicable for 11 months and it’s always a better idea to have a proper discussion about these before taking the last call.
Accessibility to the other amenities in the facility
Many residential complexes promises life – style quotient in the facility like gym, swimming pool, parking etc. and bargain high rent, but later on you may find those amenities are still under – construction or closed and you don’t have the access to the same. Hence check the amenities are properly functioning or you negotiate with the rent amount.
Area and Space
In Mumbai the rooms are presented in terms of bedrooms rather than space…1bhk room may have less space area than studio apartment, hence don’t miss out to ask the broker or the landlord about the space, if you are prefer spacious rooms.
Localities and Surroundings
Sometimes a lot of things are promised about the localities which may not come to you as expected. The basic amenities required for daily requirement like medical stores, hospital, groceries, market place, theatres, pubs, cafe, amusement park etc. Moreover the surrounding is also important…first of all, for safety and security purpose and secondly, for the hygiene factors. Your work or school/college/tuition timings may demand odd hour travelling and it’s important that you feel safe and secured while commuting. Secondly, the cleanliness the surroundings have a positive impact on the body and mind.
Apart from all these, it’s also important to spot a good broker who can get you connected with a good landlord since it’s also not a good idea to generalize brokers in one category only. There are brokers and land – lords who are really empathetic towards the tenants too…
