Default Finding A Place In Catalonia - A Mission

I've briefly lived and taught English in Spain and Greece before but accommodation was organized by bosses. Now I'm going to the Barcelona/ Girona area in less than a fortnight and have to find somewhere to rent for under E425 per month - and no more than one month's deposit. Any ideas? Plus is it hard to get signed up as a tenant? Criminal record check etc like UK not done? Plus to add to the mission I'm taking my cat! I'm a writer, can teach there but need a base! Quick!

There should be plenty of rentals at this time of the year. Just check the usual sites like fotocasa. Where in Girona exactly, as the area is big?

Hi and a warm welcome to the Spanish forum on BE. Myself and Fred James are the moderators for the Spanish forums whilst BEVS moderates Europe. Moderators are there to ensure that the site runs smoothly within the rules of BE. This is so that members gain the information that they are looking for and find their experiences on the forums to be friendly and worthwhile.

Problems and complaints should always be addressed to a moderator who will look into the matter and deal with it efficiently and fairly. Our members who post in the Spain Forums are usually friendly and helpful with a wealth of knowledge about the issues of living in Spain. I hope that you enjoy your time participating in the forums.

Please let me know if you need any further help.

Just google up: 'immobilario' 'alquiller' and your chosen region and look around.

You might find a pet a limitation and you'd have to be up front with that. Also don't get duped into paying the estate agent's fees, that's the landlord's problem.

But at this notice I thin you'll need to go for a holiday rental in the first instance and others have already suggested.

You'll also need to sort out your residency and have your cat registered with the twin hall, etc. . . . before you can get a 'normal' rental.

Regs

Where else would a Cat want to live..but in 'Cat'alunya

We live there. Best for rentals here is the dedicated Catalunya property site Habitaclia. Here's the English version for you.

Good luck
