    Depends totally on location, and what you want.
    Student areas / young professionals house share in Leeds, usually £300-£400 a month, all in, including bills etc.
    Renting on your own can be cheap £400ish up to whatever £2000+. Depends on area!

    I used to be in a large detached house which was £900, but heating such a large property, council tax etc was a killer. Now in a 2bed apartment £600 rent and bills are really low!

    Agree, I've used them before. I once got a three bedroom detached house all to myself for £350 a month (including all bills), the owner had moved in with her boyfriend and the other two rooms were for her sons who were at uni so never home.

    £650 for an end terraced 2 bed house in Alcester, Warwickshire. I could get it cheaper a couple of miles down the road, bringing it down to £550 or so, but I'd rather pay more and live somewhere nice.

    I was paying £500 for a small en-suite room and shared kitchen/lounge/laundry etc! Admittedly it was a very nice house

    What's it like living in a place like that? Might be cheaper...

    I found it ok, the other housemates were nice enough ... older professional types. It had the advantage of a garden and a garage for storing stuff in. We all left at different times in the morning so there was never a queue for the bathroom. You just need to be a bit tolerant/creative around cooking times and organize times between you. Nice to not have to worry about the next gas bill etc.

    A £70,000 house? Seems cheap?

    The one across the road from me has just gone up for £800 a month. A mortgage would be less than that that on a house of equivalent size.
