Nottingham House Hunting Checklist

Be confident renting your next student home by using our handy house hunting checklist:

  Take a look at the House Hunting guide which includes information about The Unipol Code, areas to live, flatmate finding events and much more...
  Think about your preferred area

If you are unsure of where to live, take a look at our area guide. Think about things like walking distance to uni, public transport and local amenities.

 Learn a little bit about the Unipol Code and why you're better off choosing a Code landlord

Living in a Unipol Code property will ensure the customer service and physical standards of the property are higher than the legal minimum. The Unipol Code Complaints process can also help resolve problems quickly. 

Look out for the Unipol Code Thumbs up and check if a property is in the Code with our look up tool.

What's your budget?

In most cases there will be costs involved in addition to just the rent. Make sure you have worked out what your budget is before you sign for a property you may not be able to afford. With inflation and energy on the rise, try to include a 10-15% safety net as goods/services are likely to be more expensive by the time your new tenancy agreement begins.
