Will Easter weekend DIY push my rental rate sky high?
However, recent research from utilities supplier Spark Energy has revealed that it’s not just landlords that are fed up of bickering flatmates – 70% of tenants are so tired of the situation that they are willing to pay over the odds for household harmony!
So what is the price of the cherry-picking perfect tenant? According to the data, tenants are prepared to pay up to £200 on top of market rent in order to live with the perfect flatmate.
Almost a quarter would spend more than £201 per month over an above the average rent for their area in order to secure the ideal roomie, whilst 22% would pay between £1 and £99, with the average sharer concluding that £112.40 would be their dream-housemate limit.
Welsh tenants were happy to commit the most overall, with the average respondent happy to put their hand in their pocket to the tune of an extra £138.30 a month. London tenants came in second place, and were prepared to spend a further £129.30 on top of their already sky high rents – showing just how important the perfect flatmate is!
