    Short rental question / suggestion

    New place isn't ready, current landlord asked us to leave, we need to find place for couple of months. I would like to check with all if you have any experience sharing / learning.
    Obvious questions
    - how to get internet connection for 2 months?
    - will agent charge full fees to find short term rental (i know FB has few options, we can check there as well)

    any other sharing / learning....

    Thank you in advance

    Would ask your movers if they can store your furniture and stay in a serviced apt.

    We had to do this years ago when we were in between places.

    Alternative/similar to serviced apartments, depending on your circumstances lots of hotels have long stay options, some fairly affordable...

    tell the helper to go home and enjoy for a few months then

    short term rental for a few months can be found but rare, if there is one on offer the internet will already be there, u just need the wifi password from the LL so dont worry about that, if it doesnt then get a sim card data wifi router and use that for the next few months.

    There are always many short term rentals advertised on FB renting groups. There's at least one dedicated short term group. Finding an unfurnished one will be hard though.
