Whilst the demand or rented property is currently very high, it does not mean that you shouldn’t have the upperhand when it comes to look for a new home to rent.

If you think you might be able to get a discount on the listed rental price then there really is no harm in asking, it is realistic to only expect an offer of around £10-£20 per month however over a 12 month tenancy period this can quickly build up into a nice amount.

Being smart when it comes to securing a rental property is the ideal way to ensure that you get exactly what you are looking for at a price that you can afford.
