It is essential that you view any property before you decide to rent it. Once you've signed a tenancy agreement, you are bound by its terms and it can be very difficult to get out of the agreement. Don't let yourself be won over by nice decoration and agent patter.
Smartmove may be able to find you an affordable private tenancy, which won't require a full deposit before you move in. Staff at Smartmove can also help you get in touch with any extra support that you might need to make sure your tenancy lasts. If you take up a Smartmove tenancy, you'll be taken off the waiting list.
