Renting A Property

Postby Baby_Brunette » Sat Aug 09, 2008 10:21 am

Me & My Fiance are both 19 years old (nearly 20). My Fiance has a full time job and I am currently working part time because I am pregnant. We are looking to rent somewhere and have been trying to work out our finances. I have a few questions which I would be grateful if anyone could answer.

1. What sort of bills do you have to pay when renting? (E.g. Gas, Electricity, Water, Council Tax, Poll Tax etc)

2. Do you have to get a TV licence or will there already be one? Same with phone line etc?

3. If living in a 1 bedroom flat, with 2 adults and 1 baby approx how much would you need a month for bills?

Thanks to anyone who can help.

only if the landlord is happy, some people won't allow sky dishes to be put up on the property and others won't allow holes to be drilled foe the cable
