    Some of the factors to be considered are the rent, parking charges, maintenance and other hidden costs. The quality of construction and amenities can also form decisive factors.

        Well, to name one, societies have been charging shifting charges that can be petty to pretty hefty amounts sometimes. Tenants need to ensure that all such costs are mentioned in the agreement so that the landlord or the society doesn't extort such charges at will.

          Yes, right! I had discussed in another thread about these charges. Societies are becoming ridiculous nowadays seeking money in everything.

            Yes, you can say that in a way. While societies have the right to ask tenants compensate for the damage caused to their properties, they cannot dictate such terms. All such charges should be levied only in the event of any damage done.

              Rental place can be a private house too. So, the accessibility of the house from your work place, distance from Kids school, distance of market and other facilities, safe environment, maintenance cost etc., all need to be considered.

                you shoild check for the rent, parking and charges that are excluded in the rent. The quality of construction and amenities should also be good.

                  I agree with MANOJa A house, whether rental, is actually your place for the agreement period and all things that count when buying a house should also count in the rental property. Proximity to work, schools, markets, hospitals, the overall infrastructure of the locality, security concerns, environment and gentry to name a few. Everything needs to be considered.

                    Whether they are providing a maintained home. Nowadays many people give you a home which just looks good but a lot of things aren't in working condition.

                    Then you have to pay extra money to get it repaired because they claim that everything was fine before you moved in.
