Do your parents make you pay rent?Watch

But id suggest living with your mum if its free... that way youll be able to save for your Africa course. It makes more sense to move in with your mum in the long run...
The price depends on which part of the country you're in - £50 pw in London is a pretty good deal (ignoring that it's your own house for a second) but I can see why you might have difficulties coughing it up with only a supermarket job and the need to save for your trip.
Move to your mum's place pronto.
This is just my opinion, sorry if I sound harsh.
Although I dont honestly think my parents would ever charge me rent. My brothers been out of education for 2 years, sits around doing nothing, and for the brief period that he did have a job they didnt ask for anything from him.
Move in with your mum. I know you dont want to move out, but £50 a week will really add up. Over the course of a year thats alot of money, well over £1500, which would be a huge contribution towards your trip.
it does sound high but i suppose really it depends upon the financial situation the fathers in.
oh and i have to pay rent too
Edit: Pretty sure my dad is loaded so he really doesn't need my money
I'd blow up at my parents if they dared to suggest rent. If I ever have kids, I certainly wouldn't make them pay rent either. =/
If they suggested it, I'd rather pay extra and move elsewhere...
(Although this would be very difficult either way, not having any real source of income)

Having said that, £50 per week, which I assume includes bills and food is a lot cheaper than renting your own place...
I'm on a gap year too. I'm working a full time job so i think its pretty far i do pay rent. I pay £25 a week.
