Re: rented flat market birmingham
My ex used to live in Brum near the reservoir and it was a fcking ****e hole lol.
Anyways I have never had any problem with flats in the UK maybe you are just in that purple price range where everyone is shooting for so they get snapped up. Try going up to a grand. Also a lot of estate agents are ****s and try it on to bid the price up.
Geneva is however FCKING horrendous let me tell you how it work.
Limited amounts of space means housing premiums as a result there will be regularly queues of 30/40 people to view a flat. Even ****ty flats will garner interested so you trudge along with you file which is basically a copy of your CV, Bank statements, Contract showing how much you earn, plus your "attestation non pursuite" (basically a credit check done monthly) and a bones to the wall personal statement about your hobbies background, religion sex, age and marital status. All in French and English.
If you like the flat you have to hand in the file to the letting agency who then look at them in the following order:
Married Couple Kids
Unmarried Couple Kids
Single Female ( Or multiples)
Great you think I am married I have a wife and two kids I am sitting pretty...
Oh no my friend you only earn £200k a year as your household income and couple B with one kid who already rent one flat earn £210k a year ( I sht you not on this) get the property.
Then it all goes back to the beginning and you have to start again but with the added point that Couple B now has an official let from a landlord so as a result they then illegally or Legally Sublet their original apartment for a sizeable profit and this rise rents even more and perpetuate the cycle endlessly.
As a single guy in short you are screwed and tossed out with the garbage like your favourite early 90s porn star.
