Hi all, we've got ourselves in a bit of a pickle. We're completing on our house on jan 30 but haven't found anywhere to move to. We need a short term rental of about 3 months, 3 beds and preferably in the streatham/tooting/Balham/Brixton area. Oh, and we re in NZ until jan 18 showing off our new bubba just to make things more difficult. We're willing to pay up to £2800 a month. Can anyone help us out?
OP I have asked for my first post to be removed as because you are desperate and under time pressure you could be scammed. There could be fake accommodation out there being advertised by people who will take your money without there being any actual accommodation. Please be careful. Good luck in your search but a reputable estate agent and a six month assured short hold tenancy is the safest way to go.
Foxtons seem to do a lot of short term lets as we were looking at having to do this in SW16 over the last few months but thankfully our completion dates have turned in our favour. They do seem incredibly over priced though- 500 for a 2 bedroom flat. There is a short term letting company in SW16 too so try googling that. Are you part of the local mums FB page as lots of people put similar requests on and get a response- but I do take on board the advice above re: legalities an protection
Hi SaBearOz, thanks for this. We are talking to foxtons, but as you say - v expensive, and they also don't have much on at the moment. I've also emailed the short lets in london place - but they are even more ridiculously priced (6k£ a month for a pokey 2 bed). I'll just keep looking. Thanks for posting though.
Which pages have you requested? Streatham/Tooting have several 'mummy' groups plus the buying/selling groups. They all get a lot of traffic so it's definitely a good option to join them all. It can take a few days to join. Also a really good way of meeting other parents.
