Private rents in the UK seem to be going beyond ridiculous now.
I went out last night for a meal with friends. The bus dropped me into the city centre very early so I went for a walk around the block and walked by an Estate Agents. A familiar property in the window caught my eye. It was my previous digs being advertised for rent. I handed the keys back on 5th Jan and nearly 3 months later it's still vacant.
The letting agents advertised it for £675 a month. That's £125 a month more than I was paying between 2015 - 2017 (fortunately the rent never went up). This is a 1 bedroomed coach house style flat thats attached to one other house. Decent sized attic ad garage but the rooms were a bit small. It's been tidied up a little bit...looks like the mould around the bath has been cleaned according to the photo. Or photoshopped out!
When I got home last night I logged onto rightmove and it had just been reduced by £25 to £650. Still a hell of a lot of money to shell out for property suitable for 2 people. My current rent is less than half of this!
