    Default Rental help

    Does anyone from the Howick area know of any estate agents willing to help find a rental for you? I mean, you pay a letting fee, but all they do is make you run around and look for yourself!! I don't come from NZ; I don't know the good areas, or whether a house is suitable for me due to location, or whatever :(

    Can ayone help? I'm a bit desperate... I need to have a house by next week

    Plus, what is the difference between a unit, townhouse and house here?

    Thanks a mill

    Do you want a permanent rental?

    It might be an idea to rent a holiday place for 3 or 4 weeks to give you a little breathing space to find something suitable? Try Baches, Holiday Homes, Accommodation To Rent: NZ|Australia|Sth Pacific or www. bookabach.co.nz

    We did this, and found the cottages to be really good ... were very pleased to find they weren't dumps .. AND meant we could find a rental at our leisure rather than just taking one for the sake of it.

    All the best,

    Lou
