Rooms for Rent in London
Flatshare in London
We all know that property market in London is huge, extremely dynamic and of course, expensive. Because most people can not afford renting an entire flat, they tend to live in rooms in flatshares. A flatshare is where two or more people live in a property together. Each person usually has their own bedroom and the public space such as living room and bathroom are shared. Shared accommodation are pretty popular among young professionals and expats, where they can experience more social life. Alos the cost will be way much cheaper than living in an apartment. So to get a room in a shared apartment or shared house is an ideal option if you are in a budget.
Cheap Rooms in London
The average cost of renting a room in London has reached £743 a month. Some of the housing sharing website’s listings are now even above £1,000. However the cost for renting a room in London varies from districts and type of rooms and there are still parts of the capital where rooms can be found to rent a about £500 a month - if you know where to look. The cheapest area in London could be the south-east area, for example, Abbey Wood, a Zone 4 district where room rents average £503 a month. Anyway, chasing cheaper rents in London normally requires a lot of effort and a heavy dose of compromises.
Other budget-friendly areas of south-east London include Plumstead and Woolwich with the average monthly rent of £533 for a single room. Plaistow, in E13, is one of the most untouched markets in London. The downside to relatively low average rental costs of £550 a month is that the wave of regeneration engulfing east London has not yet reached this spot.
Find Your Room for rent in London
The first thing is to understand how much you can afford to pay for your room. Once you know your financial status you can decide how much of it you should spend on your accommodation. That determines if you are able to get a nicer room. If a good room is very important, then you can also increase you rent budget but lower you other budgets. In those areas that slightly outside central London, the cost of a bedroom is between £500 and £800 per month, all bills included. If you want to chase the cheap rents below £500 you either need to live in a more suburban zone or accept a lower standard room, that means you can share you room or share the house with other people.
When you start looking, you can use online housing website like Nestpick to create a shortlist for the rooms that you like. Don’t make you search range too narrow with strict filters. You’ll probably only get a small list of room options. Once you have you shortlist, you can just start contact the agent, or landlord or flatmate and arrange a viewing for each of the rooms you saved.
