租屋流程

我哋今次再詳細啲去講 租屋 當中嘅流程。 搵盤 首先,普遍都會上去rightmove 或 zoopla 搵盤,agents 係會有啲未放上市場嘅盤告知我哋,但資料就未必完全齊備,例如未有內部相片、未有確實起租日期、甚至未有確實定價等,所以,主力都係靠以上兩個渠道係最多最齊最集中。 當見到啱心水嘅盤,主要都係用電話聯絡地產經紀(agent),有時打電話打咗好多次都冇人聽,就先爭取時間上網填咗啲基本資料俾agent 先,希望喺你未打到電話之前佢會主動搵你(當然呢個機會好微,但都有幸試過agent自動打返電話嚟嘅)。打得通呢個電話搵啱人你就成功咗第一步,agent或會直接安排睇樓時間,但如果間屋仍然有租客住緊,agent就要稍後和租客夾好時間才覆你。留意番,如果agent好耐都冇搵返你嘅話,你需要再打電話去跟進,因為有時佢哋係會唔記得咗,又或者曾經嘗試搵過你一次你冇聽電話佢哋就唔會再搵你,直接放棄你。 另外,有時見到啲盤經OpenRent出租,即係由業主自己放盤,不經地產經紀,約睇這類型嘅盤最直接就係上OpenRent嘅平台搵返個盤出嚟,然後send message俾個業主,講自己background,希望業主選中你,安排你去約睇。 睇屋&出Offer 睇屋當日,agent 會大概講一次間屋各樣嘢俾你知,有任何疑問請當刻問清楚,同agent傾過嘅重要事項請你出Offer嘅時候清楚寫明,免得之後口同鼻拗,例如你見到隻窗爛咗而agent話業主會整返,你就喺出Offer時寫明 “assumed the broken window in kitchen will be repaired before tenancy starts”。出offer主要係填offer form 或者出個offer email, 之後再補電話確認agent收到你嘅offer。出offer時,要列明租金、租期、起租日期、會否俾upfront, 會俾幾多個月等。跟住就係講出你對間屋嘅要求,例如要做專業清潔,要油油,要處理牆身發霉,同埋先前提及嘅一啲特別事項等。 而每個agent收到offer後做法都可能不同,有啲一收到有人出offer,就會交俾業主睇吓接唔接受。有啲就等吓先,收齊晒先一次過交俾業主決定揀邊一個。所以,如果有心租嘅話,唔好拖得太耐,盡快決定然後通知agent,成功機會就會大啲。 當業主

Maidenhead or Bracknell

Maidenhead or Bracknell 最近做左幾個將會六月到步嘅客人,佢哋都係喺Maidenhead or Bracknell 落腳。咁我就問佢哋點解知道呢兩個地方,因為啲人通常都會去咗Reading or Wokingham, 咁佢哋就話其實都有朋友喺Reading, 不過因為太爆喇,所以就轉過去附近嘅城市,咁我都講其實係啱嘅因為唔需要咁多人去埋喺同一個城市,其實周邊都有啲唔錯嘅地方。 Maidenhead 和Bracknell 揸車去Reading 都係20-30 分鐘左右. Google 左population, 兩個Town 都大約係7萬至8萬人。  Maidenhead 係Elizabeth line 其中一站。快車20分鐘就到London Paddington. 學校普遍都係Good 和 Outstanding. 新起嘅樓盤就通常係市中心嘅Apartment.  假如你去Maidenhead, 可以睇埋呢個: https://www.facebook.com/70srunaway2uk/posts/340268464456613 https://www.facebook.com/101711512123171/posts/120842556876733/?d=n Bracknell 出London Waterloo 係站站停,冇快車,所以車程大約一個鐘。Reading Station 出London Paddington 快車 23分鐘。學校普遍都係Good, 有一間中學係Outstanding. 至於新起嘅樓盤… 市中心就係Apartment, 周邊就有好多屋仔。 至於罪案率… 可以參考以下數字: https://crimerate.co.uk/berkshire/maidenhead   The overall crime rate in Maidenhead in 2021 was 63 crimes per 1,000 people.  https://crimerate.co.uk/berkshire/bracknell The overall crime rate in Bracknell in 2021 was 60 crimes per 1,000 people. https://crimerate.co.uk/berkshir

TV License

  要唔要買TV License? 又係一條常見問題。租咗屋,買咗電視機之後,我就好自然會買埋個TV license。 可能有啲人會問喂我部電視機淨係用嚟打機咋喎唔會睇電視,可唔可以唔買呢? 首先就算你有多個一部電視機,一間屋只需要買一個TV license. 買TV license 同睇英超係兩件事。 如果你唔睇Live, 用BBC iPlayer 睇節目,都要俾TV license。 有啲 BBC Apps 都會問你有冇TV license (Bitesize, CBeebies, BBC Three, Food, News, Sport and Weather.) 買license d 錢用去邊度: https://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/check-if-you-need-one/topics/what-does-your-licence-fee-pay-for-top13 如果你真係唔買TV license, 咁你就declare 返唔買license: https//www.tvlicensing.co.uk/check-if-you-need-one/topics/telling-us-you-dont-need-a-tv-licence
