Finding accommodation in the UK

Whether it’s for the short term, or the long term, where you live will likely play a big part in helping you feel settled in the UK. We’ve listed some of the leading property sites for both temporary and long term rentals. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for further guidance.

Finding temporary accommodation

When you first arrive in the UK, you may still have some paperwork to complete and loose ends to tie up; therefore, it’s common to secure short term accommodation before finding somewhere more permanent.

The main benefit of temporary rentals is that the requirements are minimal; you can simply search for somewhere that suits you and book your stay. The drawback is that this can be more expensive in the long-run.

For short stays, take a look at the popular sites below: 

Finding a long term rental

If you are looking to rent in the UK, you can start with a simple search on Zoopla or Rightmove. Prefer to house share? If you’re moving on your own, you may rather opt for house sharing to save on bills and meet new people. A good option for finding shared accommodation is via Spare Room.

In order to secure a long term let, you will need:

  • Proof of identity

  • Proof of employment and earnings

  • References (ideally from a previous landlord/landlady)

  • Deposit money (this varies from property to property and is often priced according to the monthly rental fee.)
