    bloody hell, I wish I could get a 1 bed flat for £370 where I am. I'm looking into getting a studio for myself and they're around £500 a month no bills included for a poxy studio with a crappy kitchenette! Sucks to be near London...

    If that was my Dad he would refuse outright, he has asked for £370, he can find other tenants. I would rather have it empty.
    It's a good job you're not in charge then... £320>£0

    OP - The worst the landlord can do is say no, then you can always up your offer.

    I know I'm not good with figures, but I know that £320 is more than 0. Like I said, my Dad doesn't negotiate.

    Which is a shame really, private landlords put their rents up so damn high it's impossible to try and find somewhere half decent, clean and not a shoebox that you can afford. I have real issues with the letting market and greed.

    I'm a student too. Sucks.

    Hi everyone,
    Me and my fiancee are getting out first flat together and have found one we really like for which the landlord is asking for £370 a month.
    This is a little expensive for a one bedroom flat in the area we've chosen so I have just phoned the agency and offered £320. Do you think this is too little?

    I don't want to seem cheeky but this is our first flat and we want to keep costs down as much as possible.
    I'm afraid she'll take offence and not offer us the flat at all! Do you think that'll happen?

    I'm worried now, just waiting for the agency to call back :P
    Any advice is much appreciated!
    Personally I think it's rude to off less than the asking rental value. As the PP mentioned, they can find other tenants, and if you want it then pay for it.
