Other Cambridge Accommodation Internet Resources
Last time I looked at the following sites etc. each had something of relevance to people
seeking to rent or let or buy or sell accommodation in Cambridge, England.
Huntingdonshire District Council runs a similar service for accommodation
in their area. Go to:
You should then select "Housing Services" from
the drop down list, click on the "Housing Advice" button at the top of the
page and scroll down to the "Small Ads" section, select the service you
want and follow the on-screen instructions. (They're promising to make
this quicker in the near future.)
Adverts for accommodation to let / wanted in Cambridge are also carried by the following
Agencies offer a choice of services, for example a management service which can be
essential when the landlord lives a long
way away and cannot turn out in the middle of the night to fix a burst pipe themselves,
and make a charge, which means that the tenant pays more rent and the landlord receives
less rent. Agencies also, potentially, give both parties someone to sue if anything
goes wrong! - which is of course part of what you are paying for. If you don't want
to pay part of your rent to an agency and are sure you can manage all the legalities and technicalities
of managing your property yourself (not actually terribly difficult - if I've got time
I may give advice on request, but I'm not a lawyer or consultant and will accept
absolutely no responsibility at all whatsoever for any advice I give) you may prefer to
advertise (free) directly on the Cambridge Accommodation Notice
Note that I do not endorse or recommend any of the agencies listed here - it is up to you
to decide whether to do business with them. Personally I wouldn't deal with any agency
that tried to charge tenants a fee but that's up to you.

If you are buying or selling, rather than renting, here are some links to estate
agents' sites and other property advertising sites
(again, if you want a link here, just ask).
