What are some tips for finding the right flatmates?
Sharehouse is a great place to find the perfect flatmate. However, it's important to remember that you should always meet in person before signing a lease. This will help you to get to know each other and ensure that you're all compatible. You should also make sure that you're all on the same page when it comes to things like rent, bills, and chores. It's also a good idea to have a chat about your expectations and goals for the future. This will help you to avoid any potential issues down the track. We've written more about this in our blog 'Seven Essential Questions To Ask A Potential Housemate'.
