You decide on the target price range, number of bedrooms and so on and indicate how often you would like to receive your alert. Any properties that match your criteria will then be emailed to you. It's that simple.

Why can't I see the security code?

If you cannot see the security code, the reason is usually because the image is blocked by ad blocking or firewall software that mistakenly thinks the image is an advertisement. To correct this, either allow ads to be shown on the registration page, or disable your ad blocking software while you register.
