I am planning to live at Canary Wharf next year and I saw this advertisement and there's this flat that's quite cheap (but not through agent which I am slightly worried)
Since this is my first time to ever rent a flat, I don't know the 'process'.
I know this sounds stupid but do you guys normally view the apartment FIRST and THEN pay the deposit (say 500 quids) or the other way round? Or is it a common practice that you pay the deposit first and then view the apartment? (This flat I fancy is NOT through an agent)
Also, I heard from my friend that there is this shopping mall called Jubilee Place mall or something, is that far off from the Canary Wharf tube station? I would like to have a look soon. Also, is it true that there is any sort of apartment located right above the mall????
Thanks a lot.
Which unis have sent theirs?
