questions on renting a property?

ok., I am about to rent a house/flat for a while and have some appointments tommorow, what questions should I ask? I want to make sure the neighbours are good? isn't there a law where they have to disclose any problems they have had with neighbours?

also can you haggle over the price? like if it was £550 a month could you say.....'I'll have it for £500'?


thanks

I wish I was more attractive like Dagless.

    Most properties are Let via estate or property agents these days and i dont think they will haggle on price.

    If its a private deal then maybe worth a try?

    I dont think they do have to say about who lives around you, i do know that you do have to disclose if any complaints have been made to local authorities regarding problem neighbours, im nearly sure this is right.

    Not sure if complaints to the Police need to be disclosed too?

    Cheers, R

    you can haggle - depends if he can get anyone else for the price that he is asking

    if he is looking for a quick let then he may negotiate on the price especially if it is not fully furnished and the like.

    You can try to haggle on price - some will, some won't.

    As for questions on area you are best to do this research yourself as an agent will never point out anything negative about the area.

    As for the condition of the property, if it is in anything less than immaculate condition make sure you take photos or get the agent to take photographs. They should do a schedule which lists any damage but a lot don't and then when you come to the end of your lease refuse to give back your bond unless you fix the problems.

    depends on how desirable the property, the demand for accomidation in the area, and how desirable you are!!!!

    if there is pleanty of property around and you can prove yourself to be a quite, nice, long term & relaible tennant who is willing to set up a direct debit every month (save messing around with a cheque) then he may consider a small discount.

    however (no offence m8) like most young ppl your prob not gonna be there for the long term, never having partys and sometimes being late with the rent then your gonna struggle to get a discount, and haggling for money before you even move in doesn;t look good and doesn;t exacly shout out "im reliable with the rent money" lol
