I have a flat in Muswell Hill and my current housemate is moving out this weekend, so I need someone asap to take over her half of the lease.
On offer is a large double bedroom with private bath and a shared large kitchen and large living room. It's a first floor flat right in the middle of Muswell Hill (amenities listed below) Rent is £600+bills which typically amount to around £100.
Here's the details:
First off, I have a puppy, so any non-dog fans or those allergic to dogs, please consider that.
More specifically, rent is £590 a month (£1175 total). Power and gas run about £90, but they do go up and down with the seasons. Water is usually £300 a year, but I can change that to £15 a month if you prefer. Internet/phone is typically £45-60 with all the goodies, before I subtract out my share - so you should expect to pay around £17-20. To put things in perspective, my current housemate has been paying about £95-£120 in bills each month. For now, the council tax is half because of my full-time student status, but I don't know what that figure is exactly. Somewhere around £75. It will change next February when my schooling ends.
My girlfriend is around a lot and she typically chips in on some things as well, so these costs my go down some from time to time.
Local amenities: Sainsbury, M&S, and Waitrose (next month) are walking distance, Super Tesco just down the road. All the major banks here, five charity shops, yummy food, and the Odeon. three night buses, and five to ten mins to Highgate; ten to fifteen to Finsbury Park; five to ten to East Finchley; Bus routes W7 (Finsbury Park via Crouch End), 43 (London Bridge via Old Street/Angel), 102 (Brent Cross via Golders Green), 134 (Tottenham Court Road via Camden Town), 144 (Edmonton via Wood Green/Turnpike Lane), 234 (Highgate Wood (north) to the Spires), 299 (Cockfosters via Southgate/Arnos Grove), and 602 (Golders Green School Route). There's also 11 ZipCar's within walking distance.
The deposit is the big thing and I think it is two months rent in advance (so £1175.00). I can't remember the credit check, but it's bank statements and a maybe an old bill/utility and then fill out a form they send of to someone that steals some of your money. I think it's £35? Maybe more. Hornsey Agency is the property rep.'They've always been pretty nice and has taken care of me well in the past.
And just so you know, they know about my dog, and there's nothing in the lease that says no pets, but they also prefer to turn their heads and ignore that he's here, so sort of do the same.
Please get in touch if you're interested. I'll be around to show the house every day until Tuesday (gotta sort something before then), except Saturday day.
