    Default Is this a bad idea?

    DP and I have found a place we love and can afford. It ticks all our boxes! Only problem is, current lease isn't up until end of July.

    We can however, afford to pay both rents quite comfortably..the existing one either until the lease is up or our housemates fill our room...

    Would you do it? It's a waste of money, but with the quality of rentals where we want to live in Sydney, it is quite a rare gem, shall I say!

    Opinions?

    I've done it - it is annoying but worth it if you get an amazing place that you want. Also gives you heaps of time for moving and cleaning which is kind of nice.

    Good luck with your decision.

    I think the girls will find someone to replace me, so it probably won't even be three months, but yay! I thought people would say its a terrible idea, I'm totally excited its not too crazy!

    Definitely go for it!

    If I were you I'd advertise your room on gumtree for $10 more a week than you're paying now .

    Of course you should do it! We just moved and paying an overlapping months worth of rent which we couldn't afford, but are happily paying off because we are happy in our nice house.
