Depending on where you are looking, finding large, quality homes/houses can be complicated and, above all, very expensive. Furnished apartments, entirely or partially, for short-term rental are usually extraordinarily expensive. The highest rents are paid in London and the South East of England. As the rents are lower the farther you live from the center of the city; it is convenient to decide to what extent a long journey to work compensates you. In London, many people work at the center, and it takes more than an hour to get to and from work.
The houses of multiple occupancies consist of dwellings with different rooms with a series of common areas that are shared by the tenants of the various places. Common areas can be as crucial as bathrooms and kitchens, but can also be just stairs or storage rooms.
A bedsit, also known as bed-sitting room, is a form of common rental housing in Great Britain and Ireland that consists of a single room and shared bathroom, they are part of a legal category of houses called Houses of multiple occupancies. The bedsits arose from the subdivision of larger homes into small, low-cost rooms.
A studio, also known as studio-flat in the United Kingdom, is a small apartment, which combines the living room, bedroom, and kitchenette in a single unit, except the bathroom. In the United Kingdom, a study usually connects bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom, although in many cases the bathroom is shared and is outside, sometimes having an individual shower in the studio.
Live-in building guardians
Through companies of ‘guardians,’ you can rent flats, houses, and buildings whose owners do not want them to be empty, for reasons of security and maintenance. The rental of this type of property is much cheaper and usually occurs mainly in London.
