Hi we are moving from South Africa to Canada. could anyone advise on how many months deposit expats are required to pay to rent (as we have no credit history)? What is the average cost to furnish a 3 bedroom home. Average rent for a 3 bedroom home?

Hi Samiramis

Have a look at our Accommodation in Canada page, where you can find more on housing. The average deposit is 2 months for renting accommodation in Canada.

Which city are you planning on moving to? The cost of accommodation varies considerably from city to city.

Kind regards,
Alex

You can appeal to Tranio.com - they work with local agencies in Canada. You should not pay them anything

Hi Samiramis

Sounds great! Have a look at our Toronto guide, which provides a complete overview of the city for more information. You can find more on the Areas and suburbs of Toronto as well as how Accommodation works in the city.

Kind regards,
Alex
