I’d definitely like it as well if there was an online “hub” where you could pay your rent, bills and any other fees all in one place, with an easy to follow system that shows you/alerts you when everything is due. Maybe something like this exists by now, but it didn’t a couple of years ago and to be honest I found it a complete nightmare keeping track of when I needed to pay rent, water, council tax, gas and electric and it often got complicated trying to make the payments too- having it all in one place would make life a hell of a lot easier.
Finally I think it should be a thing where all rental properties are decorated in a neutral way. Magnolia walls might not be the most exciting (see point about adding own stamp above) but when I was viewing flats before I’d think I’d found the perfect place only to find that one of the rooms had blood red walls or a psychedelic carpet that I just couldn’t deal with.
there is one more thing- PARKING!
This is such a bugbear and I don’t even drive! I do think it should be mandatory that all rental properties come with some kind of allocated parking- on road or off road it doesn’t matter…but it would be nice to be able to get home and park within a square mile of your front door!
What have I missed off my list of requests? A kitchen kitted out with all of the latest gadgets? A garden (and not only a garden, but one that maintains itself?) Affordable rent (hah!)
I’d love to know your thoughts below.
