Looking for 2 Bed Flat or small House to rent in Bradford
My partner and I are looking for 2 Bed Flat or small House to rent in Bradford.
We are applying for one in Canal Road, but the rental agent [Walker Singleton] seem to find it impossible to arrange a reference from our guarantor in The Netherlands. 🙄 They have also been as slow as molasses, taken £100 for the application and then managed to take 2 weeks to work-out that the flat we are interested in was offered to us at the wrong price [£450 vs £500] – which clearly was valuable flat-hunting time, and we wouldn’t have made a £40 rail trip to view if we’d been given the correct price.
I will continue with this application for the time being, but am beginning to think that either they are not worth dealing with, or that someone else will get the flat as they are unable to actually arrange our application at any rate of speed.
If anyone here has a Flat/House in Bradford or within 5 or so miles that they would consider renting for approx £450 a month, would you make yourselves known? If it meets our needs I’d rather deal direct with private landlord!
We have several years of references of renting, no missed payments or deposit issues, guarantors and the usual other things. Other terms/conditions can of course be thrashed out!
They are bikes and rabbits involved, but as mentioned before none of this has been an issue in our previous tenancies. We will be both attending the University of Bradford, and therefore will be looking to stay for around 9 months from September 2013.
Thanks so much.

At some point in the next 6-8 weeks, I should have two refurbished flats in the centre of Hebden Bridge up for rent.Posted 4 years ago
Not Bradford, obviously, but two minutes walk from the station and then 30 minutes to Bradford centre. Much nicer place and great riding too.
If it’s of any interest, drop me a line at jamesrobertss at yahoo dot com
Letting agent still utterly incapable of even acknowledging receipt of the copies of guarantor’s contract/wages, despite them requiring a substantial effort to arrange. Or for that matter even calling me back.
May be scrapping them, I’ll give them a couple of extra days.Posted 4 years agoDaveyBoyWonderMember
I’d follow the advice above and get out into the sticks a bit and use bus/bike to get into uni. Speaking as a user of the trains on the Calder Valley line, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone and even when you do get to Bradford, its a fair old trek up to the uni. I’d look at Wilsden area. Nice, should be able to find something in your budget and I’d imagine buses should go right past the uni door from that side of town…Posted 4 years ago

Buses to Bradford every 10 minutes from top of road. Asda 2 mins away. Town centre less than 5 mins. Good places to eat & best of all some fantastic riding from your doorstep.
I drive on Canal Road twice a day and it’s one long traffic jam at rush hour.el Gato NegroMember
Saltaire is a good option. Good rental market
Little houses, ok size for a couple. But limited storage , not all have outhouses/cellars.
Flats in the Mill or old hospital.
Good local riding, pubs, rail/bus links to Bradford & LeedsPosted 4 years ago
Its a nice place to live, better than most of the BD areas mentioned above.
Looks like they finally got it sorted.
Thanks so much for your offers guys, I very nearly told them to get lost. I was dealing with a nice chap there, then he went on holiday without telling us in advance, and the woman who took over from him was utterly useless and rude – hence the thread.
I’ll check back here if I need to move into another place around Bradford way.

It’s that time again 😉
The flat in Canal Road is OK, but we’re pining for t?h?e? ?f?j?o?r?d?s? a garden. We should be able to move in about a month, but any time after that is of interest.
The circumstances haven’t changed, I will be returning to do a Masters at the Uni, and MissStripes is there ’till September.
Looking to rent for around £450, 2 bed so we can have a study room.
From the above posters, do any of you nice people have a place to view at the moment? We’d consider many areas – but moving out of town a bit is the goal this time.
References from letting agents can be arranged – we’ve not had/caused any trouble.
On a slightly different note – seen a place on Zoopla – off Thornton Road, BD8. Will I/we die [or get burglarised to death]?

Wike & Wibsey are reasonable areas on the right side of town, not too far out. Queensbury and Clayton nearer and again reasonable areas. Moving further west, Denholme & Thornton proper are again nicer than areas closer to the uni. Avoid areas off Wakefield Rd and Leeds Road. Moving further north to say Shipley, Bingley, Baildon and beyond, will involve a horrible commute across town.Posted 3 years ago
