Hi I'm looking for an awesome new housemate to come and live in a great 3 bed house on Ann St in Surry Hills. Right beside central and in the middle of Surry Hills, the house is a typical Surry Hills terrace but with the bonus of a nice, modern kitchen and bathroom.
My current housemates are moving out on the 18th August at the end of the lease. I have filled one of the rooms, however, a medium sized double room is still up for grabs ($300/wk). It’s a pretty sweet room for a pretty decent price given the location. We don't even pay for water here!
The only catch with all of this is that house is handled through a management company who do everything by the book so anyone interested has to be willing to sign on to the new lease with me and provide all of the usual supporting documents required of a lease application, this unfortunately means that it's probably not suitable for backpackers or anyone without a regular pay slip, references or proof of address in Aus and probably more suitable for working professionals. You won't be locked in for a full year as we've had a few different house mates come and go without bother but a commitment of at least 6 months would be good.
The house will be sparsely furnished initially as my outgoing housemates take their stuff with them so a willingness to help hustle together and find some sofas and whatever else we need would be great too. Bond is a standard 4 weeks rent at the start of the new lease and the move in date would be pretty firm around the 18th otherwise the management company will list the house on the market. Get in touch soon so we can have a chat and see if this is a good fit and start getting our application together.
