Renting or buying a property in London in the UK is a very expensive task and large deposits will be needed to do either of this. The average London home is valued at £480,000 and the average monthly rental is currently around £2000 for a three bedroom property.
Managing to find something affordable that for a person on an average wage can be a tough task. It can take years to save for a deposit of around 20% or if you wish to rent a minimum of one months rent (around an average £1500)
Renting a property has some obstacles as there will be a number of checks that will need to be completed before you. Financial credit checks and references from people that know you will be needed as well as fees for paperwork.
One man, Andrew Charalambous is changing things the way this is done and his method makes a difficult process much less complicated. Andrew feels that people who need to claim housing benefit are at a disadvantage and something should be done about it.
You can see the Andrew Charalambous official Youtube channel to see some of his videos.
His company makes this process much easier and tenants are not asked for deposits, references or any other financial check-ups. The company finds by doing this that the tenant has a better relationship with the property owner and late or non-payment of the monthly rent hardly happens. Andrew is currently the spokesperson for housing and the environment the United Kingdom Independent Party.
