In this living arrangement, we recommend that Homemates pay a £350 deposit, and give between £250-£350/month directly to the Hosts as mutually agreed, to cover any increase in energy, council tax and insurance expenses. This does not include food, which is at the Homemates’ own expense unless otherwise expressly agreed.
For Hosts, based on average current wages, 10 hours of help/company a week equates to roughly £400/month saved.
For Homemates, this living arrangement can save you up to £700/month on market rents in some areas.
