Hi All,

I'm moving with my wife and 2 kids to Bristol. I have a permanent job offer/signed contract. We are all EU citizens and speak native level english.

I gave a few questions if somone could please help:
- Can I rent property without having UK residence?
- Should I use an agent or try private (gumtree, etc)?
- I'll be working within walking distance of temple meads train station, where should I look for a rental property. I need 3 bedrooms and have a budget of around +- 1000Sterling p/m. We are looking for a clean, safe, family friendly suburb with good primary schools.
- What's the best bank to use in the UK? By best I mean most stable (I have seen recommendations for the online version of HSBC - Firstsomething ... forgot the exact name)
- I know taxis are an insane ripoff, what are the busses and other forms of public transport like? I need to know if I need to buy a car I can I use the busses/trains?

Answers to any/all questions appreciated.

Thanks
