Everyone knows London is expensive, at times it feels like you may as well walk around giving ten pound notes away every ten minutes, it feels that expensive. But just how expensive are flats for rent in London compared to the rest of the country?
In this post we’re going to show you some examples of what you can get for your money renting in London and what you can get for the same money in the rest of the country.
Some of these rents will make you gasp, but just how much of a nightmare is London renting?
£150pm in Sheffield: a small room in a house
£150pm in London: You’re their cleaner too
This is technically £40 a month, but you’re not going to be able to join a gym in London for £150, let alone rent a room. This room also comes with 5 hours a day of cleaning work, is this a good deal? No not really, it’s like a return to the Victorian era.
£200pm in Wakefield: This MASSIVE old school
£200pm in London: A Bunk Bed in Edgware
Not only is this a bunk bed, its a bunk bed in a mixed sex 8 bed dormitory in Edgware. As this is a five bed house, that means you’re likely to be sharing with 40 people in total. This seems like a scary prospect.
£400pm in Scunthorpe: A pretty great one-bedroom flat
£400pm in London: A creepy ex-nursing home in Dartford
£500pm in Penrhiwceiber: A Decent Sized Three-bedroom house
£500pm in London: A Single Bed in a Small Room in Stratford
£600pm in Leeds: Gets You A Lovely Two-bed Flat
£600pm in London: Share someone’s BED!
£900pm in Bolton: A massive family home with FIVE bedrooms
Three reception rooms, a massive garden and enough room for a whole family. Amazing.
£900pm in London: A Single Bed in Marylebone
£1000pm in Inverness: Practically a Mansion
£1000pm in London: A single bed in Kings Cross!
London really is a scary place to rent!!!!
