Tips for house hunting

  • Don’t rush into making a decision. Take the time to think things through as you’ll be signing a legally binding contract if you decide to move in.
  • We would never recommend signing a contract or paying any money before you have viewed the accommodation.
  • Have a look at our House Hunter Guide for information about how to arrange viewings, legal obligations of the landlord,
    contract types and more.
  • Not familiar with Cambridge as a city? Check out our area guide videos.
