    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.

    ALWAYS see the apartment before you make a deposit. (unless you want to lose that 500 quid) Don't know anything about the area, but I can tell you that much.

    Underneath Canary Wharf and everywhere there is quiite a big shopping area, with shopping and restaurants, really close to the tube station.

    Seems to be dead at the weekends from my experience though.
