After a romantic time you're moving into a rented property together. Essential Advice from Cooke & Co

Romance is in the air and you're moving into a rented property together What could go wrong?

As the candles burn down and Valentine's Day finishes love is still in the air and many couples in Thanet are considering taking their relationship to the next level by moving in together. Damien Cooke, with over 32 years of experience in letting properties at Cooke & Co, shares his wisdom for couples planning this significant step.

Consult Your Landlord or Agent

Whether you're moving into a new rental together or one partner is joining the other in their current rental, it's crucial to communicate with your landlord or letting agent. Gaining the landlord's permission is a must, and be prepared for reference checks.

Budget and Bills: The Heart of Cohabitation

Discussing finances might not be romantic, but it's essential. Talk openly about what you can afford in terms of rent and how you plan to split other bills. This transparency ensures a harmonious living situation, free from financial stress.

Understanding Joint Liability

When signing a tenancy agreement together, you become 'jointly and severally liable'. This means both partners are equally responsible for rent and the property's upkeep, which could include covering for each other if financial difficulties arise.

The Logistics of Merging Lives

Moving in together often means deciding which belongings to keep, sell, or donate. It's an opportunity to create a shared space that feels like home to both of you. And yes, a trip to Ikea might just be the ultimate relationship test!
