Many young professionals move to London as part of their career. Rather than rent an entire house, many of these people rent a room in a house share as a cheaper alternative. Not only is renting a room cheaper it's also a great way to make some new friends in a new city.
Sharing is usually cheaper than renting your own place. If you live in a one bed flat you still need a bathroom, kitchen and living room. By sharing you split the cost of these extra rooms, and it’s often possible to live in a better property or in a better area than you could afford otherwise.
For landlords, renting by the room offers a way to achieve better yields and reduce the chance of maintenance costs and voids. Find out more about our guaranteed rent service here.
