At City Rental Services we notice seasonal variations in how tenants source rented properties in Bristol during the course of the year – and Spring is no exception.
Despite some of the incredible weather recently, when Spring arrives and tenants looking for rented accommodation in Bristol visit us, we advise them according to the season and the type of lifestyle they want to enjoy.
So, with the promise of warmer weather and sunny times ahead, here’s our top six considerations for finding a rented property in Bristol this Spring:
* How well do you really know Bristol
If you’re looking for good quality rented property in the city, let a reputable, well-established leading lettings agency help you navigate around Bristol, and to highlight the pros and cons of different postcodes such as BS5, BS6 and BS8.
* Consider the season
During the Spring and Summer, consider the available outdoor space with rented properties in Bristol you’re viewing. There may also be communal spaces, gardens, or proximity to parks and woodlands to enjoy the sun.
* Family & friends
It’s worth reviewing any requirements for schools, nurseries, bars, restaurants, and clubs when viewing rented properties. You can also find out information online from resources such as www.whatsonbristol.co.uk and www.bishopstonmatters.co.uk, as well as magazines including Bristol Magazine and Folio.
Talk to your letting agent about different areas and postcodes in Bristol, to get the best value for money and also to gain an objective viewpoint about renting in the city.
* Free source of information
Any decent letting agency in Bristol should provide a brilliant source of free information to a potential tenant about the city, with a solid knowledge of the rental marketplace. They should also advise you on legislation, such as EPC ratings.
* Running costs
During the Spring and Summer, running costs for rented properties are usually lower than in Autumn and Winter months. It’s worth talking to your letting agent about ongoing running costs, including a rented property’s EPC rating, which should be included with any rented property information. Visit here for further information and ask your letting agent for details.
