When should I start house hunting?

The best time to start is when you know what you want to look for and that you feel ready. Leeds has a huge amount of good houses to rent, so don’t feel pressured to rush into signing a property or give in to landlord’s signing tactics.

House hunting season officially kicks off in the Union in November.

Before you start hunting you need to figure out:

  • How much rent you can afford
  • Where and who are you living with
  • What do you want from a house, what can and can’t you compromise on
