    hello guys ,

    im moving to London in August. the problem is i don't live in the UK yet and it's a bit difficult for me to view all available rooms/flats.( im from Germany )

    im looking for something specific , in a specific area. and im now wondering if its not better to go to agencies and ask them for help
    do they really find what you are looking for?

    thanks in advance

    Yes it would be best if you go to an agency. However it can be a bit difficult. I'm from London and so is my grandmother who sold her house. Trying to find a place for her to move into in London was a very lengthy process for her. It took a few months but she's got somewhere now. Now I never went to the agencies with her or anything, so I don't understand the process. But I'm guessing that if you tell them your situation and how quickly you need to move, then I'm sure they'll be able to help

    It's not very easy to get a place in London tbh, so many people are on waiting lists for homes and to move. You might not get exactly what you are looking for but I really hope you find somewhere...(Btw I live in London). What makes you wanna come here?

    it's not that deep...
    when you move you get given a priority number (if you are going to move to somewhere owned by the council) like 1 being you have a large family and you are only living in a 1 bedroom flat and like as it goes down people have less priority for housing.

    I believe that you might have misunderstood OP.
    She is from Germany, she is not going to apply for council house,
    She thinks about renting a property (privately - like 90% of society) and she wonders how long does it take ? and etc

    Actually I could help her, but I am still not sure if I want to do it.
