Flat Sharing Tips for London Living

According to the influential American opera singer, Beverley Sills "There are no short cuts to any place worth going to". This mantra will ring true to any graduate who has made his or her way through university, juggling study, finances and social life and holding down a part time job, or two or three in the process. Degree in hand, dissertation delivered, London comes calling. With the promise of a well-paid position, vibrant cosmopolitan vibe and a never-ending social life, it's no surprise that so many graduates choose to live in the great Metropolis.

But the truth is, hardly anyone can afford to live in the Capital, let alone graduates. The average price of private rental in London is more than double in the rest of the UK, with house prices being 61% higher than the National average and double those in the North East. According to Myrooms, if you want  to live in London and enjoy all it has to offer, flat-sharing is one of the best ways to achieve your dream!

You won't be alone, did you know that around 670,000 households in London, live in the private rented sector, a higher proportion than the national average of 14.2% (source).

Speed Sharing - Does it work? Computer says no, snap-decisions on how your prospective housemates look, dress and give it large, with a drink in them may not be the way to go. It takes time, properly thought out questions and the cold light of day (or a nicely- lit interior) to sort the wheat from the chaff.

Fancy That! Is it a good idea to choose a flat mate because you're attracted to them? Definitely not, what happens if it doesn't happen or worse still it does and then goes pear-shaped. Harmonious interaction when you cross on the stairs will be a thing of the past! Head over heart is the way to go on this one, think through what you want and what you don't, and plan accordingly.

What's the perfect number? There isn't one, just bear in mind that two may be company but what happens if you fall out? And, three may be a nice little crowd, but if you're all the same sex it could lead to pairing off and one flatmate feeling left out. Two girls and one boy or two boys and one girl could easily replicate a cosy family group and make for a chilled-out homely space while a larger group can offer flexibility and laid-back rapport. Saying that, size isn't everything, gut instinct and a clear head will ensure it all adds up to make your number a prime one.

Finding Flatmates You Can Really Click With: It's worth giving this one some thought, because life is not just about bricks and mortar and the perfect postcode. So what's important to you in a housemate? If you've shared before you might have an inkling, but if not make yourself a wish list. Do they smoke, what's their attitude to the cleaning roster, do they know the price of a loaf of bread; what time do they get up & go to bed; what are their hobbies, loves, hates and viewing habits; what music do they like, full-blast or nice and quiet! You get the picture.

  • Broaden your horizons

  4. amazing experience and exposes you – in great depth – to a variety of different cultures. I live in quite a unique flat with a great mix of cultures. I got to taste authentic Chinese food and in turn explain to two of my flat mates how to cook penne with tomato sauce (quite a challenging dish). My Dutch flat mate brought me Dutch sweets I remember from my childhood. The Swiss flat mate helped me brush up on my Swiss German. Everyone is unique and different. Living in close quarters with anybody will make you see their pet peeves and bad sides, but try to embrace the differences & opportunities this offers, rather than getting caught up in little everyday hassles.
