RE: questions on renting a property?
depends on how desirable the property, the demand for accomidation in the area, and how desirable you are!!!!
if there is pleanty of property around and you can prove yourself to be a quite, nice, long term & relaible tennant who is willing to set up a direct debit every month (save messing around with a cheque) then he may consider a small discount.
however (no offence m8) like most young ppl your prob not gonna be there for the long term, never having partys and sometimes being late with the rent then your gonna struggle to get a discount, and haggling for money before you even move in doesn;t look good and doesn;t exacly shout out "im reliable with the rent money" lol
