Key Things In A Landlord When Renting House
The main factors we focus on determining where to live are living space, cost, location, and utilities. But another important factor to consider in our final decision is the owner of the property we may potentially lease – the landlord because you may live in the same house with he/she and face to face every day. If you rent house many times in your life, you may know various types of landlords. I have some experience with my landlord, I’d Iike to share abit with you. Here are some things you should look for in a landlord before leasing with he/she.
Firstly, please ask questions about the previous tenants
By asking the landlord questions about the previous tenants who rent the house before you, you can understand well about characters of the landlord. Does he/she say bad things about the previous tenants? Does he/she mention the tenants breaking their lease? If he/she says bad things about previous tenants, it means that he/she can also say bad things about you with many other people.

Please ask if the landlord know about technology
Because you live in the period of information and technology you may like texting instead of making a phone call, please ask if he/she minds about that thing. You have internet payment account and in some case when you go far away for doing business, a check or money order is inconvenient because you might not pay renting money in time. Ask if your landlord accepts payments electronically and doesn’t mind paying extra service fees.
Pay attention on his or her behavior.
When the landlord is telling you about many things, please watch for changes in their behavior on certain topics. Please ask questions if you think there’s something wrong or something you don’t feel comfortable with. You’re getting many troubles in near future if you live with a talkative landlord, he/she can tell your story to all the neighbors even if it is your mistery. You may know he/she is bad-temper or easy-going. If he/she is easy-going you’re going to have a good living environment.

Make sure your roomates are comfortable as well.
The best thing is that let your roomates meet the landlord at the first time together with you and make sure they are as comfortable with the premises as you are. Because they take important role as you do. If they feel comfortable, it means that your sharing life is going to be good.
Check the professionalism of the landlord
Focus on the method of handling things of the landlord like lease negotiation and any fixes that need to be done to the property, even the way he/she dresses. These things can tell a lot about how your landlord handles business.
If the landlord owns only one house for rent it’s not easy to do this. But if he/she owns a renting house company you can check the review site to know more about his or her property management company. The best information is from other tenants who have come before you.
These are some views to decide if your potential landlord is right for you.
