On OpenRent you can contact private landlords directly with an enquiry or viewing request about their property.
We have found that messages that include a bit of information about yourself and your co-tenants get more replies than messages that simply just ask for a viewing with no additional info.
Some landlords may be inundated with requests, and messages that give some background can help steer landlords towards your enquiry. There's no need to share too much, but including info such as:
- why you're moving
- where you work / how you plan to pay the rent
- why you're looking in the area the property is in
- what you like about the property
can really help form a connection with the landlord.
