    I know this is for a house/flat share, but me and my girlfriend are looking for a place to rent, not sharing, just wondering if anyone knows a nice landlord with a spare flat for a reasonable price, like 550 or less for 2 bedrooms, been on the usual sites and most of the ads are either lying (5 mins from city centre, when in fact it's in the docks) or are asking stupid amounts of money.

    There was a glimer of a chance we could have a room for a couple of months in Grangetown with mates. but got let down a so-called "friend" :rolleyes: so we're up shit creek again. We dont want to live more than 30 REAL minutes walk from town (so not more than 10 in advert / landlord speak)

    I know it's a real long shot but I'm running out of options here... an getting a tad stressed as we need to find somewhere by the end of the month (this deadline was sprung on us only 2 days ago :mad: )

    Heyy people - hopefully some people still read this thread!
    I'm gonna be looking for somewhere to live in the next coupla months as my landlord has decided to sell our house :/
    I'm not working at the minute, and even when I am it'll be difficult to find the whole month up front plus a billion pounds deposit thing, so I was wondering if any urbs could help/suggest/let a spare room out......

    I may have a room to let, as long as you're not a nutter!

    Hope you don't mind but how old are you? If you are young 20s you may not want a room with a 40 yr old woman and vice versa!

    Cardiff accommodation search

    Hi ddraig,

    I think I arrived a bit late on the any case, I've just begun looking for accomodation in cardiff. Plan to move there asap - Starting a yoga teacher training course up in the hills come september.

    I'm looking to house or flat share, so if you or anyone else who happens to read this is in search of one, maybe we can get in contact.

    I'll be in Cardiff from next thursday, on an intense accomodation I can meet up with anyone offering or interested in sharing the search.
    And sanity/honesty/sincerity/house sharing compatibility and whatever else needs consideration, can be given some.

    p.s. I do happen to be vegetarian - although I can think of more important things a flatmate could be...

    Ok, many thanks to all who read and/or respond.

    Hi all - I really need to find somewhere else to live; my landlord has accepted an offer for where I'm living so I reckon I got a month TOPS. So, if anyone's got a spare room that they're looking to rent out let me know. Bear in mind that I'm jobless at the moment, I'd be claiming housing benefit at first (so this might affect anyone who's claiming other benefit). Cheeeeers :)

    Ahhh the room/flat I was meant to be moving into in the Roath park sorta area has fallen through, due to bad luck n perhaps a bit of lack of correspondence on my part, gutted, just currently hunting around gumtree and t'internet as I could do with the move really, I still live with my ex-girlfriend and it can be a bit stressful. Would be great if anyone could send anything they see my way, if at all possible..? ta!

    I do like the Roath area as i live around there currently but not too fussy really, aside from being on a student budget, bane of the 'employed working professionals' so loved on gumtree perhaps :D

    found a nice flat canton area but upon e-mailing turned out to be a gumtree scam. £500 by money-gram pre-viewing? lolz.... :D

    I only pay £235 a month rent atm in my house, so there's absolutely no chance i'm gona spend loads of money on some useless agency fee. Tons of spare property in cardiff with decent-ish landlords in my experience. Moving might rinse my cash a bit, but it's just worth it for peace of mind/lack of stress. Property stuff in the Echo today (Thursday) btw, I do believe, might be worth a look?

    geminisnake a complex mass of conflicting ideas

    Son is thinking off moving to Pontypridd, any recommendations for sites to check and advice about good/bad areas? Is £450 for a 3 bedroom house good?? He's been looking at one online. And water rates?? Wtf are they costwise? We don't have them(there's some small charge in with CT)!
