Default Smithy’s Moving Thread [Update!!!!]

Right so Iím currently looking for flats and I think Iíve just found the perfect one, it says on the site to email the estate agent obviously to proceed, but Iíve never done this before, what do I need to put in the email so that I donít like an absolute ****

Any help appreciated


Edit: ok i clicked email agent and itís literally a box with a 200 character limit, you canít even send a proper email, so I just said Iím interested please could I be provided with more details


Stay tuned for more exciting updates!!

It’s just important to find a ways to make it clear that you have a good job with solid income.

That’s all the really care about.

No, it is way more important to make them know/convince them that you are sincere than having a job

Well I’m moving from Guernsey to Manchester so I have neither of those right now, but I do have a considerable amount of savings so

...I guess just email to say that you really want the flat, so what happens now in terms of documentation etc...?...pose the question to them as to the next step to your new home...(...hopefully..)...

Where in Manchester are you moving to Smithy?

Good luck with the move, and Ammi's advice is pretty sound. Agents will want employers references and credit checks to make sure the rent is affordable but if you have savings you will be able to show you have means to pay (although without an income they make ask you to pay upfront initially).

Have you ever been to Guernsey? Itís nice for a holiday but to live here itís extortionate, the average price for a one bedroom flat is £800+ a month

You're going to have a lovely time in Manchester! Good luck with getting a nice flat!

PS: bribe the estate agent if you see them being reluctant about your file works every time.

Salford is not a nice place to live, itís full of dodgy people and thereís so much crime going on there.

That's a shame, even a lot of the worst areas are better than the nice ones in Manchester (so I've heard from a friend)

Why does he want to move here? Is it for work or just because he likes it?

The people of Manchester strongly dislike Lady Gaga, I think Liverpool is a nice city next to it though
