Hello, I'm going to be starting an MA come September, and I'm looking into possibly finding a house/flat share in the general locality.
I'm just wondering if there's anybody who could tell me about their experiences of living in QM associated private accommodation? I specifically would like to know more about how people went about going through the process of finding a suitable place, if landlords are agreeable, and if signing tenancy agreements and other such things are straightforward and comprehensive in comparison to commercial estate agents.
I'd also like to know more about the general area. I have visited the campus and surrounding areas a couple of times during term time for interviews and meetings, and I felt comfortable walking about the area. I have lived in large cities before, such as Manchester and Leeds, and I currently live in Oxford for the moment; but I would like to hear some testimonials regarding living in the east end, as well as some general advice for living there safely.
Thanks in advance to any responses.
