What I rent: Kelvin and Leanne

Our Lettings team are back with the next feature in the What I rent series, with Kelvin and Leanne in their apartment in Earlswood, Redhill.


              Hi Kelvin, how much do you and Leanne pay to live here? 


We pay £1,385pcm.


              And what do you get for what you pay? 


An open plan, two bed apartment, with communal garden, bike storage and allocated parking space.


              Do you feel like you have a good deal? 


Yes, we offered a little bit higher in order to secure the amazing property.


              What do you think of the area, Redhill? 


Great location with easy access to local amenities and walking distance to Redhill Train Station. Redhill train station also has good links to London. 


              How did you find the property? 


On Rightmove.


              Do you feel like you have enough space? 


Definitely. We both have lots of stuff mostly clothes and furniture etc. The spacious nature of the apartment has allowed us to use the second bedroom as an office space for remote working and has allowed us to make better use of our living space.


              How have you made your place feel like home? 


The apartment came unfurnished, and so it allowed us to put our stamp on it. We have furnished the apartment with lots of modern furnitures which complements the layout of the apartment.


              Have you found it difficult to decorate when renting? 


Our dealing with the Landlord and Ralph James has been extremely positive so far and having sort permission from the landlord, we have been able to hang a few fixtures up. However, we have had to really think about what we put up on the walls and how things are fixed.


              Are there any problems with the home you have to deal with? 


None whatsoever.


              Do you have plans to move again any time soon? 


No, we are completely happy here and plan on staying until we can get on the property ladder ourselves.


              Do you want to own a place some day or are you happy to rent? 


Yes definitely. we’re currently saving to buy but also want to enjoy our lives which includes having a lovely home in a great location whilst we build our careers and save for a deposit.
