Hi. My friends will be moving to Manchester to work at the Hospital in the city centre. Unfortunatley, they do not know Manchester and need to rent a 3 bedroomed house with a garden.
I told them that I would ask you as I'm not in Manchester.
Could you please help? [grovelling emoticon]
They can afford £400-£500 per month and need to be 15-20 mins away from the hospital by car. Which areas are good? Which ones should they advoid? They have a 1.5yr old daughter so will probably need to be near a good primary school.
I works around the Hospital area.....there are a few roads that have free parking around there so if she drives she may be able to look slightly more out of town....I would say £550 is reasonable, but will ask my colleague who lives/rents in manchester....infact i think there are those free rental magazines floating around our office, I can pick you one up if you give me your email addy?
I live in South Manchester and most of the nice areas would be a lot more than that -- 25 minutes from city centre does not give you much scope and they will be stuck in some horrible areas for that little money and distance..
Tell them to call Wren in Didsbury -- good agency I have used.. I would suggest they consider a sligtly longer commute - Didsbury is only 4 miles from hospital but can take 30 minutes in the morning traffic..
Just trying to work out if I'm in Salford West or Best to be Avoided We've rent a 2 bed terrace in Salford near to Quays for £400 a month but it's about 30 mins by road from St Mary's 3 bedrooms are about £550
