But there are also times that looking and choosing for the right tenant can be a hassle on your part. There are people who want to rent your condo unit that are not trustworthy enough for you to let them rent it. Perhaps, you are afraid of being scammed or being fooled by the tenant and you just want to avoid it. That is why, trusting tenants might be hard on your part.

If you are a kind of person who is into business, the only way you can let someone rent your unit is to know how to choose the right tenant for you not to regret later on. Here are some tips you can also refer for you to have a good and a trustworthy tenant.

1. As much as possible, meet applicants personally

There is no harm in meeting the applications personally. You will know what kind of person is he/she when you meet them. By meeting them, you will definitely have a formal talk about how or what are the procedures before and after renting the house.

This is also the time when you can show the legal documents of the house to the tenant for them to trust that you don’t have any problems regarding the property while they are renting it. This is also the time when you are going to have a formal deal with them.

2. Check their background

It is a must for you to be concerned about their background history, especially with their criminal records. You have to be careful in choosing what are the kinds of people who can rent your house. With this, you can identify whether he is a good person or not. as much as possible, avoid people and/or tenants that can also affect your credibility as a business person.

3. Check their credit history

As the owner of the house, it is just your responsibility to check and know if that possible applicant is capable of paying you with the exact money that they have. You also have to confirm whether he is a good payer or not. If you have doubt on him/her, try to ask them whether they have a financial history that they were not able to pay and how they manage to get the said amount.

You have to be very careful when it comes to money matters. Choose the applicant that you know they are capable of paying their monthly dues.

4. Be transparent with the contract/deal

If you want that your tenant will also trust you when it comes to money matters. You also have to make sure and be transparent enough for them to know and understand what the deal is all about. You have to let them know about what are the modes of paying the house.

You also have to make it clear about the policies of the house. If it is ok for them to bring pets or not, and/or other concerns that you want to imply them.That is also if you have concerns.

5. Listen to your instincts

They say, “Always trust your first gut feeling.” Would you agree to that? Well, for some, they believe that when you trust your instincts, it will most likely to happen what your gut instinct is dictating. When you feel like you cannot trust that particular applicant even if it is still your first meeting and you just don’t know why, then you have to think twice before accepting that applicant.

There is no harm if you trust and obey your gut feeling. It will only put you away from an harm that may occur later on.

Fret not when you are using aircon, since you can save money out of it. That is, if you know the ways on how to save money while using the aircon. Now here are just some tips for you.

1. Rearrange your furniture

The coolness of your room also varies on how you arrange your room. There are just times when the furniture of your room blocks the air from the aircon which leads to slow distribution of the air. You have to rearrange for the air to be properly distributed to the entire room.

Rearranging your furniture also helps the air evenly distributes the right direction. And when it is evenly distributed, the room will cool faster than before.

2. Lighting

Sometimes, too much light can contribute heat temperature in our room. When we think that we still don’t need to turn all of the lights, then as much as possible, try to use the natural light from the outside. Turning off your lights can also help reduce the heat, and not just that, it can also help reduce the bills of your electricity.

If light is really needed in your room, just make sure that you are using the right light bulb since there are bulbs that can produce too much heat.

3. Don’t forget the fan

When you are using aircon and you think that the room is already cool, you may turn the aircon into fan. You may not turn it off, but just turn it into fan for you to maintain the coolness of the room temperature. If not the fan, you may also want to make the temperature of the aircon lower than before.

Using fan or lowering the temperature of the aircon can help you reduce the electricity bills and which you also saved money out of it. Do not forget to always lower it down when you know that the room is already cool.

4. Turn off vents

There are people, if not all are using vents to distribute the coolness of the temperature. When you use vents, it tries to make the place cooler by getting the temperature from the other room. But when you think that the vents are not used as of the moment, try to turn it off to make the cool temperature stay in a certain room.

5. Aircon maintenance

It is better to spend hundreds for the maintenance of your aircon than spending thousands just to repair it or even have it replaced. If you are using aircon in your house, make sure that you know when to have your aircon checked. Know whether if it is by weekly or monthly. By doing so, our aircon can last longer than the other air conditioner that don’t have enough maintenance.

Also, do not wait to have a damage on your aircon just for you to have it fixed. The performance and the condition of the aircon varies on how you take good care of it and on how you maintain it.

Sadly, even though we already know that it is a must to have a dining antique, there are still people who do not observe simple table manners and tend to forget that they are already disturbing other costumers inside the restaurants.

If you are a kind of person who does not want to disturb other costumers, then you can observe these simple don’ts that you must not do inside the dining restaurants.

Noisy taking while eating

Talking is inevitable when we eat. We talk since we want to know how others are doing and how they are coping up with everyday lives. Talking while we eat is also a form of bonding with our friends and/or families. It is also where we can have fun while eating our favorite food.

But there are just times that we tend to forget that our voices are already too loud that even other customers can already hear what you are talking about. As a fellow customer, you must be considerate when it comes to your voices. You must know that there are also customers who prefer being discreet while eating and we have to respect that.

Noisy utensils

Just like talking, we cannot avoid making noise on the plates and the utensils that we are using. It is just normal to make noise but not to the extent that it is already too noisy that other customers will also be disturb. It is also not good to hear when the utensils that you are using are already too noisy.

Always be mindful about the noise. If you are not too discreet about it, then just try to lessen the noise so that you cannot disturb the others.

Gadgets on the table

Everybody have gadgets, right? Who doesn’t? Sometimes, we tend to forget that we are already putting and using our gadgets, even though, the food is already in front of us. It is not good when you tend to use gadgets in front of you and while you are eating. Be considerate since you are in front of the grace.

Also, try not to put your gadget on the table since it is also not good to look at. We can always use our gadget wherever and whenever we like for as long as it is not in front of the food and while we eat.

Taking nasty/bad words

This is really a no-no when you are at the dining restaurants. You have to watch your mouth as not to talk dirty in front of the food and for the other customers to hear. It is a disgrace when you do that. You also don’t want that somebody will reprimand you for talking bad words while inside the premises of the dining restaurant.

Even though some of the dining restaurants are not that strict when it comes to that matter, but it is a common sense to every person who know what is good and bad thing to do when eating. It is just a matter of choice whether you will observe these simple don’ts.

These things mentioned above should be minimized. Whatever the reason you have in your sleeves as not to observe these simple things is always be your call. It is also your duty and responsibility to act what is best in the dining restaurants because when you do, some people would appreciate how you behave in front of the food and inside the dining restaurant.
