Do you know your rights? Do you know others have rights too? Want to learn more about how you can get accommodation or where to look for it:
A few things to remember when you move for the first time:
- Moving into a room, flat or house can be expensive because there are so many things you might need to buy.
- It’s a good idea to move into somewhere that’s already furnished, has a washing machine, oven and decent bed and mattress. Other perks to look out for are a TV and microwave.
- Bring as much with you from home as possible! That includes pillows, a duvet, pillow and duvet covers, some spare blankets, towels, books, music, kitchen stuff (anything your parents let you take!), don’t forget tea, sugar, salt, ketchup, toilet roll, they will all cost you from now on! A lamp, coat hangers, photos or pictures and anything that will make your new place seem more like a home.
- Just because it was normal practice for you to do whatever in your parents’ house does not mean it is for everyone. Remember, if you are sharing with others that those little things you do, be it not putting the milk back in the fridge or whatever can cause strife for you with your house mates especially if they have bought the milk!
