Renting Accommodation in the UK

If you’ve just arrived in the UK one of the first things you’ll need to do is find suitable accommodation. It can be a bit daunting trying to find a place right away so maybe stay with friends for a few weeks or extend your Hotel / B&B stay until you work out the best location for you.

Below we have provided links to major UK Property Websites and top Estate Agents. You will see from the Average Prices table that rates can vary massively from post code to post code so try to factor in where you will be working and also where your friends live. It can be frustrating to rent a great flat in what you think is a great location only to find that you have a 2 hour commute each day!

Are you a highly skilled expat Contractor? Would you like to maximise your contract income and work towards a visa extension or visa transfer? If so Commonwealth Contractors can help!
