Renting in Leeds Guide - Hunters Letting Agents Leeds


Renting in Leeds can be as cheap as £60 a week in a property shared with other tenants - an option very well suited to students and young professionals looking for a home that will fulfil all basic living requirements in a comfortable setting. More often than not, these houses to rent in Leeds come complete with spacious rooms benefitting from large expanses of light pouring through the windows. Burley, Woodhouse, Hyde Park and Headingley comprise just some of the top locations prospective tenants look to inhabit with a lower-end budget, particularly because of the quick access into the City Centre and University campuses that these areas present, often being a mere 10-minute commute via the ever-popular bus routes leading into these areas. Pubs, bars, supermarkets and takeaways also heavily populate these highly-sought after communities, offering themselves as ideal locations to live in where all amenities are a mere stone’s throw away. Many of these homes also come part or fully-furnished, with double glazing and central heating being extra benefits – allowing tenants a property in a condition ready to move into.


Options can open up somewhat for Leeds renters who can expand their budget to cover £100 per week, where they will be able to access studio living options, as well as a double room within an attractive, Victorian redbrick house share. Contemporary, stylish living is the blessing of a number of properties to let in Leeds within this budget, with neutral décor throughout to open up the already well-proportioned living spaces. Modern kitchens within this bracket will often include the full suite of kitchen appliances, from oven to fridge-freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and kitchen units of good size. Lounge areas are also mostly very large and well-presented, benefiting from the likes of a flat-screen TV and comfortable sofas in which to spend a pleasant evening after work. As with the lower-tier budget, attractive locations to rent in Leeds include Headingley, Hyde Park, Burley and Woodhouse – with options further afield including Bramley, Morley, Kirkstall and Armley to name a few.


Smart city centre living or residence in the nearby Clarence Dock becomes a prime option for renters with this budget in Leeds, where contemporary, open plan spaces and sleek furnishings are just some of the features to ensconce city dwellers with a taste for finer living. With these apartments often including onsite parking facilities, residents’ gymnasiums, concierge services and secure entry systems – they also lend themselves to be practical solutions to renting needs. If a prospective tenant is looking to catch a breath of fresh air away from the hive of activity in Leeds city centre, while still being within reasonable commuting distance, popular residential areas such as Meanwood, Chapel Allerton and Roundhay also present themselves as solid choices. Here, tenants will likely be able to secure the entirety of a 1-2 bed property to rent, or alternatively, a double room within a larger house share.


With a budget of £150+ per week renters can have high spec properties in prime city centre locations – think Wellington St and Park Row amongst others. Everything Leeds has to offer is literally right on your doorstep – art, theatre, music, shopping and more. In addition to this you could cut the daily commute down to just a few minutes’ walk and are just minutes away from excellent transport hubs should you need to go further afield.
