Combat the cost of high rent in Cambridge with CheckedInn
Anyone currently renting in Cambridge, or looking to move to the city, will know that property doesn’t come cheap. Recent figures released by the Valuation Office Agency reveal that an average two-bed property costs a whopping £1,219 a month.
As @Cambslive says, “Two-bed rents in Cambridge are even higher than some London boroughs, such as Bexley and Havering (£1,100 a month), Sutton (£1,180), Croydon and Barking and Dagenham (£1,200), and Bromley (£1,215).”
These high rents have made it difficult for many people to live in and around the city centre. With many landlords putting the rent up every year, the issue is only getting worse for Cambridge tenants.
So, how can you combat high rent in Cambridge and enjoy stylish city centre living? Keep reading to find out.
Most landlords in Cambridge charge tenants a rent that’s exclusive of bills and extras. This means tenants are left to cover the cost of electricity, water, internet, council tax, and any other services they use.
These extra costs can add up fast, with many people paying £200 in bills every month. This cost comes on top of rental payments, something that can make life unaffordable for many.
Often, the cost of utilities can vary month to month, especially in the winter. This can make it hard for renters to budget.
In order to make life more affordable, and take the uncertainty out of renting, Checked-Inn properties come inclusive of all utilities.
Come the end of the month, you won’t have to worry about paying for electricity, water, gas or council tax. You’ll even find extras like Wi-Fi and even linen are included in the cost of your rental.
Knowing exactly how much you’re going to pay each month can make it a lot easier to budget.
As we don’t charge any extra fees or have hidden charges, you’ll be able to keep track of your finances and manage your money more efficiently.
