Who do you want to live with?
Sharing a house with friends can be brilliant; just take care. Don’t rush into sharing a house with people you don’t know really well. Choose the right people to live with and you’ll have a great time together. Before signing anything, spend time discussing what you all want out of your year as housemates. It’s important to make sure that your lifestyle doesn’t give your housemates cause for complaint.
