  • Resource for private lets in Harpenden area

    Does anyone know a good source to find property for rent directly by landlords? I am looking for an apartment in Harpenden area, I have found a few on Gumtree but not many.

    I have found it impossible to rent through an agency as I have worked overseas for 10 years and even though I am willing to pay 6 months rent in advance the conditions they are imposing in relation to employment and proof of previous addresses are impossible for me to meet, for example I lived and worked in Iraq for 3 years and have also been in Africa so there's not a hope in hell they will be able to verify this independently.

    I have to say that I have been very unimpressed with the attitude of local agencies, I wonder if their landlords know they are turning away people that can pay 6 months in advance?
