The alternatives to our bed and breakfast in Exeter.
If you are about to start working or studying in Exeter and expect to be here for between one and six months, then finding the most appropriate accommodation becomes a priority. The costs can seem extortionate.
Hotels, Guest Houses, Hostels, Bed-sits, Rooms in multiple occupied houses or flats or rented on Assured Tenancy Agreements all vie for your attention.
Very few Bed and breakfast Hotels or Guest Houses in Exeter charge less than £50.00 per person night – that’s around £1500.00 for a month. A six month tenancy of a house or flat will cost less, (£500- £600 for a single person), BUT BEWARE.
Almost all landlords ask you to sign an agreed contract for a minimum of six months; you then commit yourself to paying six month’s rent even if you chose to leave just a short way into your agreement.
If you use a ‘Lettings Agency ‘ to find your accommodation then expect a “finding” fee probably equal to one month’s rent’. And when you sign up, don’t forget that you may need to pay a Deposit, again usually equal to one month’s stay.
Can it get worse?
In most cases you will be required to pay a deposit of one month’s rent which you may lose.
