How do I find a place to live in St Andrews?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Finding a place to live in St Andrews, involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and what type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a shared flat to a private house. Next, you should start your search online. Websites like Rightmove, Zoopla, and Gumtree are popular for finding rentals in the UK. You can filter your search based on your preferences such as location, price, and type of property. Another option is to contact local estate agents directly. Some popular ones in St Andrews include Bradburne & Co, Rollos, and Thorntons. They can provide you with listings that match your criteria and arrange viewings. If you're a student at the University of St Andrews, you can also check the university's accommodation services. They offer a variety of options including halls of residence, shared flats, and private housing. Once you've found a potential place, arrange a viewing to see it in person. This will give you a chance to check the condition of the property and ask any questions. After viewing, if you're interested in the property, you'll need to fill out an application and provide references. You'll also need to pay a deposit and possibly the first month's rent upfront. Finally, before moving in, make sure to read and understand your lease agreement. It will outline your responsibilities as a tenant and the landlord's responsibilities. Remember, finding a place to live can take time, so start your search well in advance of when you plan to move," remarked one member in St Andrews.
