You have probably only just started University, met all your new housemates, begun discovering your new city, when the perpetual question that plagues all students rears its ugly head: when should you start looking for next year’s student accommodation? Start too early and you may rush into a decision without thinking about the consequences, leave it too late and you may be left with the accommodation no one else wanted (for a reason!). But we are here to help you tread these murky waters and enable you to strike at the best time to find your perfect housing for next year.

Moving in with people you may not know is a daunting prospect for anyone - living with people who come from different backgrounds, have different lifestyles and quirks, can take some getting used to. Even if you choose to house share with existing friends, there is a big difference between hanging out occasionally and actually living together. But living with housemates can be a lot of fun and can lead to lifelong friendships. As with all relationships, house sharing takes some work to make sure everyone feels comfortable. So, follow our tips and put in the required effort to house share harmoniously and start creating happy memories that will live with you forever.

Once again, we bring to you a blog post on new legislation for landlords! As of 1st July 2020, the Electrical Safety Standards in The Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 will come into force. Whilst many landlords probably already have some sort of electrical safety documentation for their rented property, we now have clear rules in place governing the requirement for these checks, the standard they should meet, and how often they should be updated. This can only be seen as a positive for the industry and the safety of all residential rented properties in England.

After most of us have been stuck in our homes for the last three months staring at the same four walls day in, day out, you may feel it is time for an interior change. However, changing your home décor can be a daunting prospect, especially when it comes to deciding on a colour. Many of us stick to the tried-and-tested neutrals out of fear of making a gaudy mistake. However, adding a splash of colour can be the most cost-effective way of making a space unique and fitting to your personality.

 

As of 13th May, the Government announced that restrictions in England will be eased for the property sector, meaning people wishing to move, can now do so. Before you rush off to Rightmove to book viewings on all the latest offerings, we should warn you that things are still a far cry away from normality. The safety and wellbeing of all parties involved in a home move must remain the highest priority, and it is important that social distancing rules, public health advice and government guidance are followed to ensure this.  But how does that affect you and your home move?
