When you’re looking around at your next home, you may miss a couple of facts whilst in the excitement of being approved as tenants. A must is properly understanding your lease agreement. This will stop you from having any surprises later on down the track and in some cases, save your reputation as a tenant.

Take the time to read your lease through from start to end and take note of all aspects of it. From pets to sub-letting, know exactly what you can and can’t do. Don’t just grab it and sign like so many tenants do, this can only lead to a world of pain if you had other intentions once you move in.

Agents may ask you to hurry things up so they can secure you a property, at any point make sure you have clarified with the agent all things that are important to you and still read through lease agreement as well, don’t ever be rushed into this major life decision.
