What you should look for

It's important to know exactly what kind of property meets your needs before you start looking.

The main things to think about are:

  • how much you can afford to spend on rent
  • which part of the city you want to live in
  • how many bedrooms you need

Other things like distance to work and transport links may also be important to you.
