Are you thinking of making the leap in to private housing next year? Before you put pen to paper and sign a contract elsewhere have a quick think about the overall cost of your new home. Here’s a bit of an idea of what you and your pals could end up paying next year.
As expected rent will take away the biggest chunk of cash from your pot when living in a shared house. Rent for private houses is often advertised as weekly but it can be collected on a weekly, monthly, termly or quarterly basis depending on your contract.
At Storthes Hall Park there are only four rent collection dates which coincide with you receiving your student finance, making things less complicated.
Gas and Electricity – The average cost for a combined fuel bill last year was £125 for a house of 5 *
Water– The average cost for a water bill is £32 a month *
Internet – The very cheapest deals are around £15 a month and even then, you usually require a minimum 12-month contract
Insurance – You’ll be responsible for your own contents insurance for your valuables
Seem overwhelming? Well if you rebook at Storthes Hall Park then you won’t have to worry about any of these things. Choose DIGS as your student accommodation provider and then your gas, electric and water bills are included in the rent. On top of this we also provide contents insurance and wi-fi at no added cost throughout the year.
