London Landlords are officially crazy – £530p/m for this ‘large’ room….

Joe Peduzzi (22) just landed a new job in London, so he did the scary thing of looking for a house/room to rent in London.

He found a listing on SpareRoom.com for a ‘Large Double Room in Whitechapel/Bethnal Green’ for ‘just’ £530 per month which seems decent value until you realise the room is actually a shed, wait what! Yes a shed…. in someone’s lounge…with just a mattress inside….

Good old London and their awesome landlords, Joe said: ‘I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

‘There was no chance I was paying £530 a month for that.’

‘I was laughing to myself down the road back to the Tube,’

The main issue seems to be the landlords pure ‘..cheek to advertise that as a bedroom’.

 

How much do you pay for your rent? (monthly)

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,500 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
