    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently searching for a house/flat in Canterbury, and the idea of living alone is sounding more and more appealing. My question is, will I be paying more overall by doing so? Last year, I paid about £100 a week in a five bedroom house share, can I expect to find a one bedroom studio/flat for about £100 too - or will I be paying more?

    Cheers.

    Rent is not the only factor. Utility bills for a single person pro rata are huge. Best to share with one buddy at least.

    You'll definitely be paying more for living alone, after all last year you split the portion of rent for bathroom/kitchen with four other people. As an example Rightmove students the cheapest studio flat is £160pw and the cheapest one bed is £167pw.
