Local amenities, good schools, low crime rates, somewhere nice to walk the dog… Tenants’ requirements can vary significantly, depending on their lifestyles. However, with the cost of living currently increasing month-on-month, the most important factor for most people looking for houses to rent in St Helens is property rental fees.
Fortunately, here at Stapleton Derby, we have plenty of houses to rent in St Helens at very reasonable costs per calendar month.
In this blog, we’ll discuss how to calculate how much you can afford to spend on property rental fees in St Helens, and the kind of properties you can expect to get for your money.
What other expenses will I need to factor in alongside property rental fees?
When determining how much money you can afford to spend on houses to rent in St Helens, you’ll need to budget carefully. Start by calculating your total income, taking into account your wages, benefits and any other sources of income.
Once you know how much you’ve got coming in each month, you’ll then need to calculate your outgoings. These include:
- Water, gas, and electricity bills
- Council tax
- Child maintenance
- Phone bill
- Broadband bill
- Cost of running any vehicles, including fuel, tax, maintenance, and insurance.
- Contents insurance
- Spending money / entertainment
Add all these amounts up and take them away from your total income. This will give you the amount you have available each month to spend on rent.
