Myself and my girlfriend are both currently in first year, and sharing a studio flat, but going into second year we want to privately rent a 1/2 bedroom flat.
I've done quite a bit of research and know what areas are best for us and what price range we want to be aiming for, along with an estimate on how much bills and stuff will be per month. So we're pretty sorted on the finance side of things.
However, I'm just worried we should have found somewhere by now. Our current tenancy ends in September so we're looking to be moved out by the end of August/ start of September.
When should we start seriously looking at finding a flat? Everything I've seen online at the moment is available too soon for us.
If anyone has any experience with anything like this I'd appreciate if you could share it, I'm sure it'd help put my mind at rest.

Unlike the average student who will, usually, end up going through student-aimed agencies for a massive shared house you'll probably end up going through agents whose property tenancies aren't on the time loop of the academic year it won't be an issue to leave it till a bit later; early/mid August.

TLDR: You can leave it until closer to the date (mid/early August)
