Title: How to Design Your Rental Property

MC Property Plus
  • How to design your rental property

  • Unfortunately in Australia especially when you
    are in your younger years, renting a property is
    everyday reality. In a freak kind of way these
    are your years you are most bursting with
    creative energies inside and wanting to add some
    great ideas to your home. 
  • Now, in some states such as Victoria the
    Government recently made some changes to rental
    laws and the rights of tenants, such as keeping a
    pet in a rental property and the right of
    decorating your home and we can only hope that
    South Australia will follow suit.

In the meantime, before you can make some major
changes the following rules need to be followed 
  • Contact your landlord or property manager
    Adelaide and discuss your ideas. Make sure you
    have good reasons for your request.
  • The owner does not have to agree to every request
    you make. However, they may look more favorably
    on requests that have future benefits and add
    value to your property. For example, painting,
    retargeting or landscaping may improve the appeal
    and worth of the house to some degree.
  • If they do agree, make sure you get the details
    in writing, noting what changes are to be made,
    who is to pay, what portion each person will pay,
    and what will happen when you leave.
  • At the end of your tenancy, what will generally
    happen is that any changes made to the property
    by you as the tenant will remain.
  • You can remove fixtures you have affixed, with
    the owners consent, unless the removal of
    the fixture would cause irreparable damage.

So what can we do then.?
  • For the detailed explanation always check the
    official Tenants Rights Manual in your
    respected state, likewise in our case South
    Australia. We have it handy HERE
  • And you can also check HERE
  • Because South Australias Landlord obligation
    rules are a bit outdated and loose, always make
    sure to check the property cleanliness and
    overall condition before you move in. Also noted
    here, if you find that the chosen home would be
    suitable otherwise but it needs a fresh coat of
    paint or new carpet its worth to ask from the
    Landlord but if she or he refuses you might be
    well off to look for another property than to
    move in for a longer time and be disappointed. 
  • If you think its still reasonable we can show
    you what you CAN do without breaking the law

1. Focus your energies to the interior
  • If you dont like the old plastic vertical blinds
    in your apartment, consider replacing them with
    new venetians, cordless blinds or curtains. Dont
    chuck out the old blinds as youll need to
    reinstall them when you go to leave and of course
    make sure you dont make any new holes in the
    wall when installing your new window treatment.
  • If you have your heart set on shutters, it may be
    worth approaching your agent and asking whether
    the landlord would be prepared to go halves with
    you to install the shutters. You get to enjoy
    them while you are there and they get to keep
    them when you leave. This is an excellent win/win

2. Add some green living
  • Plants and flowers give an instant lift to any
    space so add them to your kitchen and living
    room. Its clichéd to say they bring life to a
    room but its true, plus they have the bonus of
    helping to clean the air and remove toxins.
    Cleaning the air and making it your own is a nice
    feeling especially if loads of other people have
    lived in there before you.
  • Dont just limit your plants to the living room,
    add them to your bathroom too. Many plants, like
    cacti, love the climate of a warm room and thrive
    in bathroom spaces.

3. Decorate the walls
  • Peel and stick vinyl stickers, called decals,
    which are super popular at the moment can be
    found it loads of interior stores and online.
    They come in all different colors and designs and
    are relatively inexpensive. They can easily be
    added and removed and a great way to add detail
    to your wall without damaging the paint
  • Another trick is to use removable wallpaper and
    to create a feature wall. Made out of
    self-adhesive wall sticker fabric it looks and
    feels like traditional wallpaper but you can
    easily DIY it as it requires no glue, no water
    and no tradesperson. Then when it is time to
    move, the removable wallpaper will peel off
    without leaving any residue or damaging the
    surface making it a landlord friendly option.
