Hunters York Letting Agents - Renting in York Guide

Starter Budget

Residential property to rent in York can be secured on a budget as low as £250 a 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 rooms 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 £300-£350pcm, 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 £450pcm+ bracket significantly opens up prospects to include single dwelling in entire houses and flats, in addition to the ample shared property available to inhabit. 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).
