    Hi all,

    I wish to rent somewhere in the near future in the Gold Coast area but cannot apply to rent until I have viewed a property internally, this I can't do from the UK and I want to have somewhere organised before I get there instead of wasting money in hotels. Does anyone know any businesses that do this for you???

    Please help

    Re renting a house

    Hi Louise,
    I emigrated here 2 weeks ago, I looked at trying to rent a property for 6+ months before we came but it was difficult, nobody would rent without viewing and signing contracts etc. What we did was to book a holiday home/house for 4-6 weeks which we are in at present and its nice and cheaper than a hotel. We move into a more permanent property in 3 weeks time having viewed and signed. Personal opinion is actully better to view due to location of property main road, noise etc as so many look great but could fail to deliver.
    hope this helps,
    Lisa

    Hi Lisa,

    Many thanks for your reply.
    So do you have a web address for this place where you are renting now so I can have a look. Sounds great and just what I'm looking for before a sign a lease.
    Where are you renting? How are you finding the Gold Coast?

  5. I really hope to help people in this department too. I am trying to set up a deal with people who specialise in short term holiday rentals here in Redcliffe while you can get time to sort out your brand new lifestyle change! My office also manages rental properties so knowing an agent here may be able to help you get by because of the silly references and the fact that there are just not enough rentals even for locals!!!
