Nowadays people are moving to other cities either for their studies or jobs. When they go to the new place, they need accommodation. Also, make sure that your student accommodation Bolton provides good facilities that help to pursue your studies. Many prefer to stay in the PGs because of the affordability offered by them. But the main concern is how one can select the perfect paying guest accommodation suiting their requirements from so many available options. Here we have specified some things you should check before finalizing the pg in LaxmiNagar.

  1. Consider checking the location: One of the most important factors to consider before you rent any PG is its location. Most PGs are rented by students or working professionals. Having PG located near your college, training center, or workplace will be much more convenient saving you your commute time and travel cost. Also, the area where the potential PG is located must be well equipped with social infrastructures such as hospitals, grocery stores, gas stations, shopping complexes, restaurants, cafes, and other places where you visit on regular basis. The location of the PG must also offer proximity to public transport.
  2. Availability of food: Almost every student and working professional do not have much time to carry the entire saga of cooking and thus, look for the PGs that can provide food to them. Therefore, before you select any PG based on the condition of the room, don’t forget to ask if a three-time meal is served by the shortlisted PG. go through the menu of the PG. In case you prefer to rent a PG serving only vegetarian food then do check for the same. Also, know about the timings when food is served and if the potential PG provides packed breakfast or lunch so that you can carry it to your college or workplace.
  3. Facilities and utilities offered: Before you select any specific paying accommodation, always check if the basic utilities such as electricity and water are provided and the bill is included in the rent or you will have to pay it separately. Apart from these utilities, the pg accommodation must also provide a few facilities like cleaning service, washing machine, geyser, and purified drinking water. Also, basic furnishings including bed, mattress, pillows, study table, chair, cupboards, etc should be available. It is the responsibility of pgs to take care of the security and safety of the lodgers. Thus, the potential pg must be well equipped with CCTV Camera and a watchman.
  4. Check for shared washroom: You might be an option for a double or triple sharing PG to save your money. But you need to keep one thing in mind shared PGs are equipped with washrooms that are to be shared by everyone. And you might not be comfortable with this fact. In such a case you should check the washroom arrangement before you sign the paying guest agreement and prepare to move in.
  5. Rules and regulations for paying guests: Now that you are going to stay in the PG for months or years you must know about the rules and regulations of the shortlisted PGs.
  • Know the curfew time:It is always a wise decision to check the curfew timings of the PG you are thinking to rent. You can find PGs with a curfew time of 7 or 8 pm making it inconvenient for the working professionals who have late office timings or students who are enrolled in the coaching institutes having late evening study schedules. In case you have similar issues, then discuss the same before finalizing any PG.
  • Know the guest policy: Every owner of the paying guest accommodation has his or her predefined guest policy. Ask him or her about the guests who may come to meet you during your staycation. In case your parents want to come to see you then what will be the arrangements? Till what timings your friends can visit you? What will be the food arrangements for your guests? You should discuss everything so that there are no surprises in the future.
  1. Go through paying guest agreement:Once you are satisfied with the condition and environment of the PG, ask for the paying guest agreement from the owner. Before you sign the agreement read it carefully. See the important details including the name of both the parties, description of the room allotted, amount of the security deposit and rent, duration of the staycation, and code of conduct expected from both tenant and owner. In case you want to add any particular condition then discuss the same with the owner. And if there is any tern you don’t agree with then communicate it with the owner.
