Looking To Save Money

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

I'm looking to rent a 1/2 bedroom flat in Birmingham. Does anyone know I can find information about flats that are available to let without having to use the very expensive Letting agencies.

I have seen a couple of properuites that I like but the fees and bond are insane. One flat was 475 per month, and they are asking for a bond of £950!!!

Any information would be good - thanks.

Have you tried the council, my sister rents a lovely 1 bed for £50 a week. Apparently there is a lot of stock available.

Are you living in Birmingham at the moment?

If so, the local papers are your best bet.

Regarding deposits, I would never pay a deposit greater than one months rent. IMO anyone charging more is planning to rip you off.

Taking a month and a halfs rent as a deposit is common in the industry, and is merely a prudent step in these days of tenants withholding the last months rent. However, 2 months rent as a deposit is too much, and would legally be considered a premium, which would give the tenants the right to assign the lease without the landlords permission.
