Tackle The Issues Of Renting Your Home

Not too long ago, I wrote a post on some of the benefits of owning your property. So, it only makes sense to look at the other side, and that’s the problems with renting property. However, rather than dwell on these issues, I thought it would be useful to look at some of the solutions to the problems and solve them together. After all, there are plenty of people who do rent because either they feel it’s cheaper or they love the freedom it brings.

That Darn Deposit

The problem with renting is that you know eventually you’ll leave. And when you leave the home has to be in virtually the same condition as it was when you entered. That means that any marks on the wall must be completely covered and any damage should be fixed. Otherwise, you’ll lose your deposit. And if you are renting a larger property, that deposit could be quite substantial. Lucky, there are easy ways to make sure you protect your deposit.

For instance, if you are renting a place with furniture, you should make sure that there are covers and protective cloths or materials over everything. So, if you have a home with a sofa, you can get a throw to put over it. That way, if you do spill anything, you won’t damage the furniture, and you’ll only need to worry about what you bought.

As well as this, you can give the property a good professional clean before you leave. This is the easiest way to guarantee you’re not charged for a mess.

Feeling At Home

Another problem with renting is that you can be haunted by the thought that it’s not really your home. Instead, it’s always someone else’s, and that’s partly because it is someone else’s. It belongs to the landlord, but you can still make a rented house feel like your home. One of the ways to do this would be to add some rugs and perhaps even removable wallpaper.

There are plenty of ways to make a rented property feel like home without damaging it and potentially losing your deposit again.

Trouble With Neighbours

Sometimes if you’re renting you’ll be sharing a building with other people, living in an apartment. Some people love the communal spirit this brings, but it can get a tad annoying when one neighbour insists on blasting their music through the wall. At this point, it’s important to keep your cool and ask them politely to respect your enjoyment of the property as well as theirs. Of course, if this doesn’t work, it’s worth knowing that if you can hear sound coming from someone else’s property, this can be classified as a disturbance of the peace. So, you do have the right to make sure you get a nice, quiet place to live even when you’re renting.

I hope this helps you solve some of the issues with renting property and let’s you enjoy the benefits of this type of living choice.

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!


While shifting to your dream house, you may face a mountain of pre-move work, including downsizing, packing, hiring moving trucks, and other help. When you already have a list full of tasks, home improvements for the new house might be the last thing. However, handling the new house renovation before moving in is convenient for you in many ways. Planning home improvement is exciting and stressful both. If you are moving to a house that is not entirely ready, you have massive things to do. To make things smooth, create a list based on priorities. If you are shifting to a freshly build house, you do not need to make a lot of renovation, though you can add a little personal touch to it. When you make house changes before moving in, you can save your floor and furniture from paint spills. You will have an open space to plan the house interior. You can protect yourself and your family from hazardous odors and dust. There are several home improvements like removing popcorn ceil
