London is known for being one of the most expensive capital cities for renters.
By the end of 2019, the average rent came up to £1,600 per month, but there is areas where rental rates are more affordable. If you are looking to rent in London, don’t miss out our new quick guide.
Here is an overview of the most affordable areas to rent in London.
Bexley, Barking, and Dagenham have a fair share of affordable flats for less than £1,300 per month. These areas will be especially convenient if you need to be near the District line or if you commute to work by using overground trains.
In Harrow, small flats for rent can usually be found for around £1,200 a month. If there is more than two of you sharing, Hillingdon may be a cheaper option, although prices are rising really fast here.
One-bedroom properties in Enfield are also below the city average and are on par with those in Harrow.
Waltham Forest is another borough where your money will go further. Moreover, the area is well connected to other parts of London via overground and tube (Victoria and Central lines).
If you are looking to rent in South London, at approximately £820 per month for a 1-bedroom flat, Bexley has some of the lowest average rents in Greater London. However, the borough is in Zone 6, so you’ll have to factor in travel costs too.
Bromley is another affordable option, and it’s also a bit closer and better connected to central London.
If you must live in Central London, sharing with a group of friends is the best way to save on rent. House shares are more affordable in Islington and Southwark, and they drop even more if you go further east, for example in Greenwich.
