We arrive on the 1st Jan, and have booked into a holiday let for the first 12 days. We are going to set some long term rentals up to view before we leave the UK, so that we can have them ready to view when we arrive. What I wanted to ask is what the rough timescale is from signing the rental agreemant to 'moving in ' date. We need to move into our new rental after the 12 days is up. Is this an unrealistic idea? Never rented a property before so unsure of the process!
