Rental request – 2 bedrooms: we have received a request from a mother (and teenage daughter) who are moving to Christchurch and need to find a home to rent. They are looking for a one or two bedroom flat, or a three bedroom home (and they would have either a professional working person or a student living with them). Required from late December or early January. References available including one from the Minister of their Presbyterian Church. They would enjoy being in a home with a garden to look after. Contact Tracey at the Papanui office for further details.
