I am getting a bit stressed as I leave for Adelaide at the beginning of March and there is still so much to do.
I will be arriving on Friday 4/3/2011 whilst my wife will stay behind in the UK to wrap things up here. I have just over a week there before I start working so in that time have to sort out a vehicle and accommodation and that is proving to be much more of a problem than I anticipated (finding rental accommodation here in the UK just do not seem that difficult).
My wish list:
As close to the CBD as possible
Approx $400pw to spend
We will only bring a few furniture pieces with as we are renting out our place here in the UK
Must allow a well behaved cat
Now I very rarely see places that allow for pets, how do I get the landlords to consider us with a cat
I assumed that there would be many places furnished, but this seems to be not true, so what are my options, wait until I get there to buy the essentials (such as beds, etc), or buy them here and ship them over (I do not want to buy at garage sales as I truly do not have the time to do that)
Do houses come with white goods (or if it is unfurnished, it truly means unfurnished completely) other than here in the UK where you normally get a stove, oven, fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer
Would two weeks in short term accommodation be enough for me to secure long term accommodation?
Please advise your thoughts guys,
