To get the most out of the Step into your Tenancy guide, it is best to work through it, step-by-step online, as it has interactive links that will take you to all the websites you will need to set up your bills and to find out more information. There is also an accompanying ‘to do checklist that you can fill in, to help keep you on track! You just need tick of all the things that you’ve done and keep any important dates and any notes safe as a reminder. Be proud of yourself when you’ve ticked it off the list!
