A flat share.

Anyway, the point is there are plenty of rental properties where bills are not included. It's a simple enough point to accept; no point having this daft debate.
Just would have thought most people would be a bit smart and opt for a house-share/flat-share so they don't have to spend like half their wages on pure rent and can actually save a decent amount towards a deposit each month...

House share isn't even particularly bad. especially if you've just come from home [sharing with family] or from renting a house with students.

Wouldn't be willing to do it myself; not as an adult.

I think the share thing is more of a London phenomenon, hence your perception.

If you're living in London then a flat/house share is really the only option for a lot of people. And even then it won't be cheap. In other cities it can work out just as cheap having your own flat, i.e. a quick rightmove search showed that a flat share in my area would be £348 a month inc bills. But all in with bills I pay MAYBE £400. Which I happily pay for my own space.

Having lived with flatmates and lived by myself I would rank them about equal

I miss the socialisation aspect I got from living with flatmates. Even stupid stuff like watching family guy on itv2 at mightnight in the living room and all having a laugh.

I've never seen as little as a 50 pound differance between houseshare with bills and own place. usually it's at least several 100 and i'm not talking about just London...
