Assessing a Landlord
How a landlord, or their agent approach your initial interest and day of arrival is a good measure of support you will see later. For sudden breakdowns, everyday maintenance, or relating to legal and financial management.
They should be happy to cover costs which apply to them, from essential services to lightbulbs. Ideally, they will also take an interest in your removal day, ensuring all is ready and you are not going to spend days chasing them.
A well prepared inventory can help with this but make sure you carry out your own checks. If anything is missing, damaged, or not working, keep notes and where possible, take pictures. These will generally be date stamped, so hard to disagree with.
