Renting - Whats Involved and End of Lease Cleaning Melbourne

Updated on March 25, 2012

Lets Take a Look

Best thing to do before you start any rental agreement is know your rights.Signing a rental agreement can be a daunting task especially if you’ve never rented before. It can be scary for some who’ve just moved out of home for the first time so it’s important to get to know your rights as a consumer. It’s a big commitment so you want to get this done right the first time.

Knowing your rights and the processes involved can make the task of finding out where you’re going to live a whole lot easier.

Here are a couple of things you need to know first:

How far from public transport, amenities and university?

What are the open for inspection times for having a look at potential properties?

What sort of budget can I afford for rent?

What other costs do I need to factor into renting like cleaning services Melbourne and utilities cost.

Look in areas that you know you can afford and are able to meet the rental repayments. Competition is tough as there are lots of uni students and young professional’s scouring the rental market so allow at least a few weeks to find a decent property. The main factor though is whether or not you can afford the rent. If you work towards the rule of paying no more than 40% of your disposable income your on the right track.

Pre-filling a rental application before the inspection can increase your chances. Remember the old saying: ‘the early bird gets the worm’. And also having photo copied documents such as your I.D and references to give to the agent if need be. You must remember you need money for the bond which is usually around 4 weeks rent in advance. Also remember to check how long the lease is for and read the fine print. Another thing is to ask the agent for a list of: cleaning services Melbourne.

  1. End of Lease Cleaning Melbourne: The #1 recommendation for end of lease cleaning Melbourne is Vanda Cleaning Services. They are located at 2 Shakespeare Grove St Kilda VIC 3182

Another point which I would advise against is moving in with friends and this can often end badly. I’ve witnessed this first hand half a dozen times.

If you want to vacate the property before the lease is up you must give the landlord notice. Once you’ve found a property you like, have signed the lease agreement there are ways to end the lease if you need to before the contract is up. Remember to find yourself a good end of lease cleaning Melbourne service to impress your landlord and get your bond money back without any headaches.

      If I had 40% disposable income I would be living large. I tried my hand at end of lease cleaning but got bad feedback from my realtor so had to go back and fix up the job. I should of shopped around and found a company to do it. I know what I'll be doing next time I move out. Thanks!

      Thanks for the advice. I had a quick look at the website you provided and found some useful info. The blog had some great advice also. Thanks again for the hub. I know renting here in the states is a little different to the way things are done in Melbourne but still very similar at the same time.
