It’s almost that time of the year again. Your rent is drawing to its end and you are wondering if you should renew or move on. It’s time-consuming to look for the perfect place, hence, the temptation to stay on at your current place. Jumia House has come up with a few reasons why you should not renew your rent.
- The increase in Rental Cost: This is no surprise to many. It’s a common trend for landlords to want to increase the rent when your rent is almost up. Is the increase in the rent more than you planned for? Yes? Then it’s time you moved on and found a new place.
- Life: Yes, life, it happens. It could be that you just got married and you need to move in with your spouse or you both agreed to get a new place. You have kids and need more room or you need to move to a more child-friendly area.
- Over -lord Landlord: You have one of those overbearing, overly inquisitive, all up in your business landlords. We’re sorry to say, it’s time you moved to a new place. Does your landlord delay in making repairs? Have you had to pay for repairs out of your own pocket without getting reimbursed? It may be time to move on to greener pastures.
- Roommate: Have an overbearing roommate? Tired of living in the same space with them? Or you think it’s time to live alone? Then begin to search for a new place and plan to move out before your rent is up.
