I have just finished my time at uni and have previously been living in student accomodation. I am now looking at houses to rent out with my uni mates - we have all decided to stay nr uni as opposed to go home to our respective parts of the country. Now that we are looking to rent "normal people houses", how does the process work. Are we allowed to haggle down the price they are asking for per month, or is that deemed innapropriate? (i know you can haggle down house prices when you are buying, but we are letting)
Financially we are in a bad situation, because we havent all had time to get jobs (we only finished our exams last month). This makes me think that we should be trying the get the price down, but also makes me think that we aren't really in the financial position to be able to p1ss about. Afterall, we still need guarantors and such, and they may just laugh at us!
Any insight appreciated,
