TO SAVE YOU THE READING:
Know that the final decision belongs to the agency. They will require 3 months payslips ( uk), will perform a credit check, might need guarantor if the credit check fails, and will expect the new tenant to stay for at least a year. If you do not meet one of those condition, I’m afraid we’ll lose our time because they will refuse the application.
My name is Chrystel and Iâ€™m a 32yo professional. Iâ€™ve been living in
Edinburgh for over 5 years and in this current property for 2.
Living by myself is great but takes a tow on my finances as living in Edinburgh is dear.
Iâ€™m looking for someone to share a home, responsibilities and way of life. Iâ€™m also looking for a FEMALE professional over 30yo.
I have lived with Flatmates in the past and I had it all. Iâ€™m not looking for someone to move in just because they need a place. This presentation might seem very harsh, but Iâ€™m honest and straight to the point. Iâ€™m also nice and fun.
Iâ€™m renting a flat to an agency. As they do not allow subletting, I only get one shot at this as the person selected will have to sign a lease with all the paperwork that it does implies, I hope this explains why Iâ€™m being thourough. Iâ€™m not in a hurry so I will take my time to pick the right person.
Weâ€™ll both be renting someone elseâ€™s property and that it will have to be looked after as our own.
Below you will find a detail of how I see living with flatmate. If you feel
you agree with the following views, give me a shout. If you feel itâ€™s too
much, itâ€™s probably not for you.
Iâ€™m not rigid on all of those points, we can discuss them, but then again, you must have a sense of generally be on board/ wanting the same or you will not be happy living here.
Amongst all my past sharing experiences, the ones that works best were the
ones where both part considered the place theirs, and took care of it as such.
Itâ€™ll only just be you and me so open communication is a must. Hopefully everything goes well and we donâ€™t get there but a will to find commun ground and solution towards disagreements is important too. If you are not willing to solve problems when they arise, it might turn into resentment and I wouldnâ€™t want any of us to live with someone we resent.
In other words, if there is a problem, un-comfort or else, letâ€™s talk about it.
I want a home that has a sense of friendship /family, if you know what I
mean. Respecting each other is at the top of my list and I will be social and
discrete whatever times is fit for it. It means that some nights I will be in
the sitting room watching tv, some others, in my bedroom. Basically, go with
the feeling. I would hate to see any if us going to an extreme or the other.
From there, I hope weâ€™d share a glass of wine in front of a movie from time to time.
Receiving people in the flat is totally cool, unless it happens every night,
and even a text to check that itâ€™s ok last minute is better than showing up
unannounced and respect towards each other.
Receiving people to stay is also fine, but might need to be discussed before :) I have friends and family in other countries that come and stay for short period of time. I will always check that itâ€™s ok with you before to confirm with them.
As part of the renting agreement, we are to, quarterly, clean oven, defrost
fridge, wash windows, clean skirting boards and ventilate the flat regularly.
Iâ€™m looking for someone that is willing to share these responsibilities and
not leave it all for whomever wants to do it. Nobody does, it just has to be
Alongside with this, I clean after myself to leave you a clean and available space to cook, shower or whatever else. Iâ€™m expecting the same from you.
Regular ( at least once a week) cleaning of the communal parts is implied.
It also means sharing the cost of the cleaning products.
Know that Iâ€™m maybe a bit more thorough with cleaning than most people, as I leave the place the way I would like to find it. If I feel uncomfortable with something I will come discuss it. As examples, I would pickup my hair from the drain after washing them and rinse the shower from any cream, conditioner etc, wipe inevitable marks from the toilet, deal with dirty and washed/dried dishes in a timely manner, not let anything mould aboutâ€¦â€¦.
If you are laid back, you are not going to like living here, but it is not hell either. Only commun sense and respect to each other.
ABOUT THE PROPERTY:
You will have a double bedroom, furnished with a bed, a chest of drawer and a
The place is very quiet and the property gives into a cute communal garden.
The flat has electric central heating, carpet all over and double glazing. Kitchen, sitting room and bathroom will be communal spaces. Itâ€™s very homey and cosy.
The rent is £350/ month to pay to the agency and the bills are roughly an extra £200 on top of that. Now this is based on a single occupant so council tax ( Band D) and electricity charges will have to be adapted. Broadband is just under £40 ( to be shared), Tv licence would be about £25 (the 1st 6 months - to be shared). But we will pay what we owe equally at the time. Iâ€™m happy to share the breakdown of bills and anything you will ask about them. In summary, you can budget about £550 all in.
The place is very well situated, 15/20mins walk to Waverley/ Bus station/ tram terminus ( York place). Lidl, Tesco express, Scotmid, Iceland, and Sainsburryâ€™s are shop situated either side of the location ( in between easter road and Leith walk). We are also very close to Meadowbank.
Buses 1, 7, 10, 11, 12, 14, 22, 25, 49 ( and maybe even more) are in between 4 to 8 mins walk.
If you feel that the Flatmate expectation part describes a bit of the life style you would like too, letâ€™s grab a coffee and find out a be more about each other. I feel that this is best done face to face. However just to give you an idea, here are some of my interests:
. Music ( I play guitar, and sing)
. Travel ( I like discovering new places/ cultures)
. Craft ( where do I start? â€¦.)
. Food ( eating, baking, cookingâ€¦)
. Socialising ( home or out)
. Environment / sustainability (trying to do my bit without overdoing it and getting frustrated about it)
. Languages ( I speak 3 and sign 1)
. Walks/ hike ( I love going for fresh air and walk places I havenâ€™t been before)
Iâ€™m also a light smoker.
Iâ€™m looking forward to meet you and get to know you, as if you didnâ€™t get
scared by my description, we might get along just fine :D.
If you have any question, do not hesitate to fire me a message :)
