Asking on behalf of my brother who is at Derby uni in his first year.
He is looking to move into (rent) a house with his friends from first year so far and he's been told by some people on his course that its already well into the season for looking at houses. At nottingham uni I'm sure it didn't start until late January, but I'm not sure if its different at Derby.
He should be finding this information himself but any tips on timescales and when he should be looking (if not already) would be appreciated.
Also, any landlords or agencies that should be avoided, any areas to favour or avoid or other general advice gratefully received.
We have the answer...
