However, each time I've moved, I have started thinking about it in plenty of time- and then actually got round to it very late. The record for this, of course, is renting Godwin Close in Cambridge: we looked at it on Monday and told the estate agent we needed to move in on Saturday (true). This involved paying £1500 or so of deposit in cash, much to their dismay :}
Anyway, this time isn't too bad- at least we only have to move by mid-August, and its still July. Hopefully we can move to somewhere where the landlord doesn't insist on us writing cheques "manually" every sodding month. Standing Orders were developed for a reason, grrr.
I've finally got an appointment to see a couple of places tomorrow. However, it's likely that I'll have to get an overdraft in order to stump up the cash for a deposit again.
For once, though, I'm going to be staying in practically the same area (Golders Green), so at least I won't be repeating the treks from Docklands to Golders Green that characterised last year...
Ah, what a royal pain in the butt. But I don't want to buy, so I have to put up with this.
And hopefully we'll actually get ADSL in the new place and have a semi-decent internet connection. We can't all be like Neal and just casually drop a T1 line in :| (although it's tempting).
