I'm relocating to Brighton area to start a new job. I have found that trying to rent a house from 'remote' is almost impossible. But the same seems to be for renting a room. I tried different sites, like roomster, spareroom, etc but it is not easy to find a rent for one month.
I also paid an AD on gumtree but it didn't provide any useful contact. I have found just a couple of opportunities, but I do not know if and how I can trust the remote person that even if it is sending me a copy of his/her passport, it is still unknown.
Any useful advice?
