London flats to rent with bills included

Utility bills are a big cost factor in the UK, and factor heavily when choosing the right home to rent. While surprisingly rare, there are developers who offer London flats to rent with bills included, taking this big administrative concern off your shoulders. Read on, and find out more about all-inclusive rental living in London.

What’s the average cost of utility bills in London?

If you’re living in London, or thinking of relocating, what can you expect to pay monthly for utilities?

Gas and Electricity: £94.25 (though this average is likely to rise in 2022 due to soaring gas prices.)Water: £30Broadband internet: £33Council Tax: £100 (This depends on what council tax band you are in, and costs vary widely between them.)Total: £257.25 per month, or £3087 per year.

*Note: We took these figures from UK and local Government reports, and the regulator Ofgem.

The answer: London renting, with bills included

If the thought of arranging all those utility bills doesn’t appeal, there is another option. While there currently aren’t that many developers who offer London flats to rent with bills included, this service package is available.

The London rental market is growing more competitive every year. As such, more rental property developers and management companies are offering a new type of rental experience. The idea is to make renting as hassle-free to their customers as possible.

Typical offerings of this kind will focus on simple, ‘no surprises’ contracts that offer flexibility for tenants and low fees. However, we are also seeing more companies beginning to offer ‘all-inclusive’ monthly rental fees. This means tenants pay a single monthly fee that covers their rent but also all their utility bills.

This is a cost saving opportunity for you, the renter. If the management company has secured good utility rates for their properties and passes those savings on, that is. It’s also a significant timesaver, since you only have to pay a single monthly bill.
