Hi there, I am going to sutdy in Birmingham for six months as an Erasmus student, starting in September. I am having really serious difficulties in finding landlords who provide contracts shorter than ten months, can anyone help me?
It's quite urgent.
Thank you a lot,
Elisa

This is very surprising as there are 3 unis there and lots of private accommodation for students meaning that its not so easy for landlords to find people.. Areas like selly oak are full of student accommodation. I think the best idea is to rent with other students in a shared accommodation for six months or put an advert on the spareroom website if you are not actually in birmingham or rent airbnb for a week and come to birmingham to find somewhere

Hi there! Thank you a lot for your answer. Yes, I was surprised (and disappointed) as you are, but I found out that a lot of agencies, and even the landlondrs on the studentpad rent for a minimum of 10 months.
Therefore, I started looking on Sparerooms, but is not one the sites considered as "secure" by the University of Birmingham. Do you, or anyone else, know it? Is it reliable?

I don't think there are any 10 month contracts, because the landlords know that everyone else is only offering 12 month contracts even though there's 3 months where no students (or very few) are in Birmingham.
