Long term rental housing in London at an affordable price

If you decide to settle in London, then, most likely, you are looking for affordable housing. Some very useful websites will help you in this. Which ones - we will tell in our article.

Spareroom.co.uk. SpareRoom is the most popular home search site. This free and incredibly convenient resource is used by many. You just need to place an ad, providing information about yourself and what kind of room you want to rent. Do not forget to add an image of the profile - then your request will not stay unnoticed. After reading the options, you can contact potential neighbors. In addition, SpareRoom often arranges events such as Speed Flatmating. They are visited by many people.

Easyroommate. Another well-known site with the help of which you can create a personal profile and find the perfect roommate. Easyroommate is a free resource. But for VIP membership you still have to pay a small amount - only £0.66 per day (if you register for 30 days).

Gumtree. Housing for long term rentals is most often sought on Gumtree. But unfortunately, the site is full of fraudulent ads. This resource is also free, but the search function on Gumtree is slightly worse than on other sites.

If you came to London to study, you also need to find accommodation. Student hostels are the cheapest option. Among them the following are worth of mentioning.

Chapter London. Chapter London, located in two different locations in London, rents out housing for less than £200 a week. Accommodation in the triple room Chapter Lewisham costs from £169 per week, but for this price you can rent a double studio in Chapter Portobello. The cost of accommodation includes the payment of all bills, a visit to the TV room and study rooms, as well as bicycle storage.

United Students. Weekly payment at Unite Students, which includes three hostels: North Lodge, Station Court and Emily Bowes Court, is less than £200. All three buildings are located approximately 8 km from the city center in areas with a good traffic junction.

International Students House (ISH). International Students House (ISH) offers a four-bed room for £ 79.80 per week. Of course, you will have to share space with three neighbors, but you can save a lot.

Beroomers. Students will benefit from the Beroomers website. It is very similar to Airbnb, but offers different types of housing that can be rented for a long time.

Calculate your budget: allocate a minimum amount for living, which will include payment of utilities, food and transportation costs. Decide on the job: do not rely on student loans or grants. To increase your budget, you can find a part-time. Find housing in a convenient place for you: of course, it would be great to live in such areas as Camden Town, Shoreditch or Central London, but they are not suitable for students. First, accommodation is more likely to be more expensive, and secondly, you will have to spend a lot of money on trips to the university. Therefore, it is better to look for housing closer to the educational institution. Do not forget about the communal services! If you plan to stay in the student hostel, then, most likely, the payment for utilities will be included in the total cost. But this does not relates to the rental of private housing.
