Having a real hard time finding somewhere to rent that meets my requirements. One of them being that I wish to stay away from letting agencies and want to stay with a private landlord. Does anyone know of any websites where the places to rent are privatley owned?

Thanks.

Try Gumtree. I had a place to rent and put it on there. I did notice there were loads of other landlords advertising. Good luck

We got ours just in the paper on a Wednesday, I also hate letting agencies and wasn't about to pay key deposits and loads of extras, found a great flat, price is good and landlord just lets us be. Best way sometimes.

Nearly ended up paying over 300 quid to a letting agent. I don't understand how that works.

Just be careful with Gumtree and renting houses or flat in Wallasey as there seems to be a scammer about that Gumtree have been investigating!

We have been looking for a new house, luckily we have found one now. When I was looking I posted an add on Gumtree just saying looking for a 3 bed house, blah, blah. Got an email back from "David" saying he had a 3 bed house in Greenheys Road to let, long term that sounded perfect. He sent me the pics and I asked him for his number to arrange a viewing. I was asked to prove I worked. I told him work references would not be a problem, then he said he wanted proof of my income in the form of a bank statements. Emailed back and asked if we cold discuss that once I had seen the house and made a decision....I got no reply.

The following week I got an email saying house available Stratton Close. I replied to the email in a similar way as before and when I read it, exactly the same email and even the same photographs except this time it was from "Alan".

I reported it as suspected fraud to Gumtree, who have informed me that it is infact a scam to try and obtain your bank details. Just wanted to make you aware with a few people mentioning Gumtree. Some poor naive person will be that desperate to find a nice house in a good area they will fall for it and hand over a copy of their bank statement.
