How To Become a HouseMatesNaija Host

1. BE CLEAR, ACCURATE AND HONEST

Make sure you are clear about what comes with the room, what the rent covers and what bills are included.
Be honest when listing; don’t say that you have a modern contemporary house if it’s really not.
Give details as to the size of the room, rooms dimensions etc, thus letting the person reading the advert decide if the room is big enough.

2. LOCATION

Location could be a main attraction for your house mate.
Describe your local area and amenities as this may be especially important for a housemate who does not know the local area.

3. ADD PICTURES

Add a picture or even multiple pictures of the property, the rooms, and maybe the other tenants if any.

Screening your Housemates

How can you ensure you are getting a good housemate?

Ask Questions

The first opportunity you have to screen your potential tenant is when they first contact you regarding your property advert. They may contact you asking for a house viewing or just have general questions about the property, but make sure you use this contact as an opportunity to ask a few questions yourself. A serious tenant will always be happy to answer any questions.

Observe the Body language

If you are happy to arrange a property viewing, use this face to face contact as an opportunity to decide whether they have the potential of being a good tenant. Are they punctual? Are they polite and careful when walking around and viewing the property?

Run Background checks

Some background checks and references are very important parts of the screening process. It is essential to protect yourself and screen your potential tenant. You will be able to carry out some analysis on them which may help in reducing the risk of late rental payments or the expense of an eviction. If using a letting agency, they should carry out these checks on your behalf, but make sure that they do.
