Finding private rented accommodation

Will there be other costs?

If you find your accommodation through an agent, you will probably have to pay a holding deposit of one week's rent. If you pass referencing, this will then be taken off the total amount owed before you move in.

Most landlords and agents will ask for one month's rent in advance, but some private landlords (especially for shared accommodation) may ask for two weeks' rent in advance.
