7 Hacks that will make your Quest as a Guest easier:
Find a registered place:
As mentioned in Times of India, “If a PG is registered, the owner will have to maintain a record of those staying there as well as the rent payments. If a PG resident files a complaint, the owner is charged under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code. It is the responsibility of police officials or supreme government authority of the city to keep the records of PGs, so that police can examine records, status and history of the PG if the need arise.”
Explore options at your workplace :
The best place for a good advice is amongst the people you work with. They can give you some of the most viable options which will be in a Ready-to-Move-In state.
Once you find a place, pay it a visit :
Do not trust a place without actually looking at it. Ask several residents in the same about reviews and the perks. They will not make false promises to you regarding the same and will help you to judge the place with zero biasing.
Clear your terms with the owner before commencing your stay :
If you are a party hag and usually stay out late, or spend some nights out, discuss your owner about it. Some people even charge extra for a night-out on a per night basis.
Check for electricity :
Try to find a place with a power backup. Most PG residents have to pay an electricity bill exclusive to the basic rent. Some PG owners attach their own appliances with the same meter for which you are paying. Make sure, you do not fall for the same.
Be cautious about the location :
Find a place which has a market nearby , and is safe to take a stroll at evening.
Check for Security Deposit :
When you pay a security deposit, ask the owner to give a written receipt. This might help you to get him pay it back to you when you leave the place.
