When you are relocating to London, whether you are a student or a professional, it is one of the better options to browse through local websites, which list all the available rooms, flats and share houses for lodging in London. These websites will easily allow you to find a suitable lodging in London, which not only fits your budget but also your requirements. In one place, you can find a wide range of residential properties.

When you are going through all the possible places that you can rent, in London, you will benefit if you remember these tips.

Securing the right place

You cannot expect prime property to go unrented for quite long time. If you don’t rent it, someone else will. To secure your favorite property, you can pay a holding deposit of one week’s rent. You can lose your deposit, though if you decide not to rent the property.

What to look for in a rented place?

When inspecting a rented place, you must be sure that it fits your requirements. These are the factors you must consider when renting a property:


Is the property furnished? Unfinished property will have carpet, appliances and window treatments only while a furnished one will have everything from beds to the cutlery. You will just have to move in with your belongings.


What area is the property located in? The more upscale an area is, the higher will be the rent. You can inquire about the area from an estate agency or look it up on the internet.


Does it provide easy access to your work or your college? The property should be close to public transport. The travel expenses will add to your monthly expenses so keep the total figure in mind.


Not every area is secure and some areas may have high crime rates. You can ask local residents about the situation of the neighborhood before considering the property.


‘Bills not included’ might just be the fine print that comes with any contract! There might be many costs that monthly rent won’t cover. Some of them are council tax, TV license, water and broadband bill. Of course, you can increase or decrease such expenditures at your will.
