Did your partner get the EEA Family Permit? If so, would you mind sharing your timeline?Hello Everyone,
We are foreigners who are jobseekers that would want to move to Manchester. We are looking for a flat or studio type apartment exclusively for 2 persons that is safe and accessible for public transportation and also inclusive of all the bills. I have heard that there are some good reasonable areas in Manchester like Didsbury, Whittington, Chorlton and Salford Quays. As we browsed through the net we saw some that fits our budget, our budget range from 300-450 Pounds pcm.
Wherever you go, you should know these: don't make payments/deposits in cash -unless is made to an account at a Bank-, always ask for a receipt/voucher, check carefully the inventory of your rental unit, make sure you get immediately a hard copy of your tenancy agreement, if something isn't right call your landlord/property manager immediately. READ THE FINE PRINT!1.) Among the places mentioned ,what is the safest area and most accessible for public transportation to the center? Can you suggest other areas?
2.) Can you give us an idea of what are the details that the foreign tenants should know to rent a flat/ apartment in Manchester?
Normally, you will be asked for a 6 week deposit + 1 month rental.3.) What are the expectations in terms of payment? do we need to do advance payments and deposit?.
Personally, I will never, ever, rent anything without having an agent involved. I'd rather pay their commission, than being scammed.4.) Is it necessary to get an agent? if yes can you please recommend us an office that we can contact through phone or email?
thank you so much in advance
