I just recently moved to Shad Thames
(Cayenne Court, Curlew Street
), 1 bedroom, first floor, street facing, fully furnished, 64sqm, on site porter, swimming pool, sauna, gym. Originally the landlord was asking for 350pw, but i got it for 330pw. So i was quite ok with it.
After moving in, I found the rental agreement of the previous tenant on the dinner table and it turned out the guy only paid 285pw. However, he moved in in May 2009, hence in the high times of the recession. He also secured this rent till August 2010.
When I had the viewing of this place the agent told me that 330pw matched the previous tenant's rent. So he obviously lied to me.
I was just wondering if 330pw is ok for the area? Whats your experience?
