Your rights and responsibilities as a tenant are clearly set out in the tenancy agreement. These will include an undertaking to pay the rent on time and keep the property in an acceptable state. Read the agreement carefully and raise any queries with the agent before signing.

Your deposit is usually held by the agent.
As the tenant you will be expected to arrange contents insurance for your own possessions in the property.
   
Unless otherwise stipulated in the tenancy agreement, you will be expected to pay for utility services such as gas, electricity, water, telephone and TV licence during the course of the tenancy. You may also need to pay council tax.
   
At the end of the tenancy, ensure you have fulfilled all the obligations as stated in the tenancy agreement, otherwise deductions may be made from your deposit. At this time the agent will conduct an inventory check and inspect the property. Provided there are no missing items or any damage, your deposit should be returned to you shortly after the property is vacated.
   
If the property is a managed let, the agent will act as a mediator between the tenant and the landlord, otherwise you will be required to deal with the landlord direct.
