Please note that the listings are NOT INSPECTED and SHOULD NOT BE RENTED "SIGHT UNSEEN".
Explanation of Your Search Results
Order of Listings Upon Search: Once you have either clicked on or inputted your search criteria, the results will appear in the following manner. Obviously, the categories (Type of Accommodations, Rental Price and Distance to Campus) that you have requested will be searched and honored, but the results will appear such that each of the "16 Designated Areas" of London will come up in the following order;
See "Designated Areas on a map. Then the results will appear in ascending order of price (lowest to highest) in each "Designated Area". The lowest price may be a unit that has no advertised price and the landlord is willing to negotiate. Some "Designated Areas" may not appear because they are outside the "Distance to Campus" that you have requested.
"Distance to Campus" is based on what a landlord tells the Service, but it is generally the distance from the accommodation to the edge of campus that is closest to the accommodation and is measured in a straight line.
