Shared accommodation is the best way to deal with the high costs related to rental apartments. When you are relocating to a place you have not resided in before, it is all the more important to keep a watch on your expenditure. The last thing you want is to go bankrupt when the next paycheck is still a couple of weeks away. Shared accommodation has its own advantages as well as disadvantages. However, the disadvantages can be nullified by following certain tips. When you are sharing an apartment or home with a stranger, you need to be extra cautious. This applies even when you have performed sufficient research in sites like RoommateWire.com to understand the person’s personality traits and lifestyle. Shared accommodation can be smooth if you sign a rental contract before you move into your new apartment. Read the fine print as it might include certain additional details that are often ignored. Peruse the rent section and understand how the refund system works in case you plan to leave. Certain owners may deduct some part of the refund for pending bills and other damages to the room. As a rule, the entire refund amount has to come to you in case you have no bills pending and there are no damages to any part of the room. Inquire if there are additional charges for the internet or telephone. An important message for everyone – always get a receipt or written proof for all the bills you have paid. Before you move in, ensure that all the furniture and fittings are in proper condition. Additionally, get a confirmation on whether there is a notice period if you plan to move out.
