Hi everyone, love this site and use it pretty much every day! I know you are all helpful and I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice?
I have been renting rooms in shared houses for the past 7-8 years (Uni & new place of work) and never had to sign up to any contacts etc. I have been looking at renting a flat of my own and I wanted your opinion.
People advertise with a 'per calendar month' or 'per week' figure - is it the done thing to haggle over these prices? or is it accepted that these are the prices you pay? does it make a difference if it is going through a letting agency?
Also, with a 'per week' figure how is the payment normally collected? is it:
('price per week' x 52) / 12 paid on the same day each month?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated...
