People often rent long-term to save up enough money to get a mortgage. Renting can be fine but, in time, you might want to make changes to the property so it feels more like your own home. You can often run into trouble with your landlord in this situation as they will be reluctant to make significant changes to their property.
Persuading your landlord to make the changes you want can be difficult but there are things you can do to increase your chances of getting permission. Things like paying your rent on time and building a relationship with your landlord will help gain their trust.
If you are unable to make the changes you want, there are certain removable home improvements that won’t require their permission. Additions like rugs and temporary wallpaper can really make a big different to the vibe in your home. Check out this infographic from Half Price for more information on making a rented home your own.
