    Hi guys!!

    I am hopefully starting my course in Cardiff University this September. My boyfriend is coming over from my country and we are planning to live together. However, he's coming here to work and I will be studying if that makes sense. Do you guys know anyone who would let a room in a house for a couple? At an affordable price of course (around £300-£350 a month).

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I don't know anyone personally but you will not find it difficult to find somebody willing to rent a room to a couple in a big place like Cardiff. Prices will vary based on the quality of the accommodation but you will easily find something affordable

    You may struggle with this, simply as if he is not a student, the landlord will have to pay council tax for the property. Even though the rest of you ARE students that won't make a bit of difference. Also make sure that if you do find somewhere that you disclose that there will be two of you sharing the room. Even though it's the same room, often landlords charge prices on a 'per person' basis, and if you do not disclose it may be written into your contract that you may only have him visit for '3 weeks at most' or something.
