Flats/Houses in London

172 posts in this topic

I may need a spot in/around london for a while.

What areas will i be able to rent a decent 1 bed (not a studio) for maximum 650pcm.

Is there anyone else to look at except private landlords

AND

I need to be able to get into central in less than an hour (canary wharf sides)

safe

When you're looking to rent a property, what kind of credit check, security checks, etc do they do?

If you're sh*t's kinda bad, does having a guarantor help? To what extent?

I'd say to look at somewhere like Woolwich good transport links, you can use the DLR to get to canary wharf, plus it's only 20mins away from central London as well.

I'm pretty sure you need a guarantor for renting anyway, I should look into it, I'll likely be renting as of August myself.

not everyone needs a guarantor i dont think, will need references though n a nice deposit

as far as credit checks im not too sure but unless u got sh*t like CCJs or u been bankrupt i think ud be alright

See, a place like this looks sick to me.

I don't like trusting websites too tough sometimes.

Is it possible to have someone renting, in 'their' name & you just live there.

Reasons for guarantor:

Claiming benefits

Working full time for less than 6 months

Wage of less than 2½ x the rent

Previous bad financial history

Previous bad landlord history

for that price range all i can say is good luck

you will probably need to house/flat share unless you want to be living on top of a chicken shop

http://www.zoopla.co.uk/

is a nice site you can prob find something there

best bet would of been to stay in east london but with the olymics coming up them prices will be inflated

so maybe your better off looking south london... however south london is a joke area more time

arrrgghhh ive narrowed it down to 2 options. Live in hertfordshire/watford and commute

or just bite the bullet and pay this madness of £800 a month for somewhere i actually like. Its gonna hurt me though. I wanna stack not pay rent & bills and only have like £400 for the month.

My finanial breakdown for my rental plan -

One bed flat (real nice one) £1300 per month, so...

Sharing with GF so split rent = £650 PM rent.

Bills etc = £400

House living money (food etc) = £200

Money left for play = £8.50

That doesn't take into account deposits/agent fee's/tenancy agreements etc

I'm going to be f*cked.

Cheers boss. I'm terrified.

I know, extortion. It's the Highbury Square flats though so it's pretty nice and the location is banging.
