    I was thinking of gong for air BnB while I find a place to live (not sure which London uni yet). How long does it take to find somewhere and then agree and move in?

    I was looking at 3 weeks air BnB but its like £600 and rent in those areas is more like £450 (middlesex)

    Advice appreciated!

    Finding a place in London doesn't take long unless you're super picky. When I first moved here I came down one weekend and exclusively looked for a place. I found one and lived there for 6 months till I found my feet and then looked for one in a nicer area with flatmates I knew and that was more convenient.

    Not long. Be prepared to get fleeced though.

    Nearly 8 years here and still rolling over for agents and landlords.
