Hunters York Letting Agents - Renting in York Guide

York is an incredible city to live and work, with a bustling abundance of amenities, transport links and with plenty to do on evenings and weekends York is now a popular place to reside by working professionals, commuters, families, students and retirees.

The city centre is typically the most expensive area to live in York, as amenities are within an easier reach. York has many different suburbs each with different benefits and quirks and we recommend that if you are not familiar to the area that you speak with us so we can point you in the right direction. As rents can vary across the city, we have put together the below guide to give you an idea on how much to budget.

Starter Budget

Residential property to rent in York can be secured on a budget as low as £350.00 per month for the more frugal tenants – usually being students or young professionals. This will likely secure them a basic single or double room in shared accommodation suitable for single occupancy, where they will benefit from communal amenities such as a lounge, kitchen, and bathroom. A number of these homes are offered furnished – where the very basics are usually included – such as a bed, wardrobe and kitchen appliances.

Single or double rooms in existing house or flat shares can be secured with a budget of £400.00-£450.00 per month, where the bedroom for single occupancy will be of good size. This will adjoin the communal rooms that are equally well-proportioned, often fully furnished to allow for an easy move in. Often these properties to rent in York will be terraced, semi or detached townhouse properties located on lovely residential streets – some being within walking distance of the University of York or City Centre. A number of these houses will also come equipped with well-maintained front and rear gardens – serving as a real draw to live in, particularly over the summer months. Some will even include off-street parking, but it is likely that ample safe on-street parking will be an option if the former is not the case. In many cases, a perk of York properties to rent within this budget will be bills included, significantly reducing household admin for the sharing tenants.

Working Professional Budget

Scaling up budget to the £650.00-£800.00 per month bracket significantly opens up prospects to include single dwellings and entire houses and flats, in addition to the ample shared property available to on the market. In each case, paying that bit extra will secure tenants in York with a functional place of abode couched in numerous comforts – from high-specification contemporary fittings to open plan rooms, extra living space, manicured gardens and more. Usually these properties best serve professionals who seek a home that is extremely well looked after and respected by both the landlord and other tenants (if shared).
