The majority of the world's population is below the poverty line. For those who got into this category, surviving in London is an extremely difficult task. However, this is not easy for people with an average level of wealth as well. Living in one of the 20 most expensive cities in the world, many spend most of their savings on renting an apartment, food and other minimum needs. Nevertheless, in London you can save money on something. How exactly - we will tell in our article. Even if you moved to London recently, you probably already had time to notice that the primary problem faced by city residents is the search for living space. Houses in London are the most expensive in the country, and living outside of the city entails huge transport costs.
Prices: The average cost of renting a single room is £400- £500, but a room for two will cost you as much as £500- £900.
Search for a suitable area: it would be nice to walk through the most expensive and luxurious blocks of London, and then stay away from them. After all, you need areas in which rooms are rented out at affordable price.
Where to search: ideally you need to start with accomodation search sites, as well as with local newspapers.
Communication with the landlord: if you like a room, it is better to communicate in person with a person who leases it. But any agents should be avoided as much as possible, as they will take a lot of money from you.
Discussion of the conditions: do not spend money on living in fancy and elite areas, but try to negotiate with the landlord that you will share the room with a friend.
