London is one of the most expensive cities in Europe which makes it really hard for its residents to acquire a property of their own. This stimulates the property rental business to a very high degree. Finding a suitable property according to the seeker’s needs is a real challenge in the UK but in London, it’s a lot harder.

The average cost of renting a place for living in London is about £1,400 which is much more expensive than in other UK cities.

Some areas in London are known for their expensive rentals and are, therefore, avoided by the majority of the population. London areas with cheap rentals are much more popular and preferred by the citizens of the cosmopolitan city.

In this post, you will see the lowest prices for rentals in each part of London. Check out how much it will cost you on average to rent a different type of properties such as studio flats, 1,2 and 3-bedroom flats and more.

House shares are always cheaper to rent. Paying for a single bed in a shared room is the most adequate solution for anyone who’s looking for a bed in London. Hiring a whole property comes at a very different price that is a lot higher, especially in the central parts of London.

These are the cheapest areas to rent in East London per size of the property, according to the current state of the local real estate market.
