Costs and responsibilities
As your funding is only secured for a set period, you should not sign up to a lease beyond the period of your funding.
If you are leasing a property, the landlord will be responsible for:
- insuring the building
- making any structural repairs.
The landlord may also apply a service charge if you are renting within an existing building or complex.
- rent (including increases in rent after a rent review)
- service charges
- contents insurance (also buildings insurance if you are buying a property) and
- health and safety costs
- telephone, internet and office costs.
