Hi Jorge,Did your partner get the EEA Family Permit? If so, would you mind sharing your timeline?
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!
Normally, you will be asked for a 6 week deposit + 1 month rental.
Personally, I will never, ever, rent anything without having an agent involved. I'd rather pay their commission, than being scammed.
Studio flats to rent in Manchester City Centre, Greater Manchester Most of the units have an agent and their telephone number listed.
Thanks so much for your advice. We will take note of those like asking for reciept and to get in touch with the agent
We didn't submit the EEA family permit application yet coz we are still waiting for my documents that were translated. But other than that we have all the documents on hand. we will let you know once it would be submitted.
The reason why i opened this thread is because we want to be ready once we are there and have the right expectations. also, we would fly right away once the eea family permit is granted.
Anyways, we are so concern about the credit rating in uk which obviously we don't have it. I read some articles that say if we don't have credit rating in uk we need to pay 6months of rent. Which is too much for us. Are there any alternative documents that we can provide?
Right now we are already budgeting for our relocation from the daily expenses, travel expenses and rent. Let's just say our budget for renting a fully furnished flat would be 350pounds. Would we expect to have other overhead expenses like taxes, commission to the agent etc.
Thanks so much for all your accurate prompt information
