Renting


Whether you are looking to buy a house or rent, you will most likely find yourself dealing with an estate agent. In the initial locating of a property they will be the ones to help you find the right place, take down the price brackets you specify and show you around the properties that meet your requirements.

There are a number of estate agents in Cambridge, locally we have a selection of different agencies each with a different variation of properties. It gave us the option to see what each agency had to offer and a great assortment of different houses within different pricing budgets. 

We have now been in the same house in the Midlands for 14 months now, in that time frame we have had up's and down's with our current letting agency. I have found them slack in certain areas where we have had to really work to get them to pull their finger's out. I don't think badly of them but I won't be jumping up and down and recommending them to everyone either. 

Renting we rely on our letting agency more than we would do if we owned our home. If we bought through an estate agent we would be responsible for any repairs that needed doing and we would be able to decorate as we saw fit. Renting means that we need to contact the letting agency for any modifications that we would like to make, and if something within the house needs addressing. This has it's pro's and it has it's cons, but ultimately for the moment it is nice not to have the general house wear and tear bills each month.

For now renting is the only option that is really available to us, but we do hope to save up enough money to use as a deposit in the not so distant future.
