this is for a college student, not a uni one, but basically the same.
I have a friend who moved to new zealand for a year with his mother, hated it, and has decided to come back, and hes managed to get a place with his grandparents, but its quite far away from the college and he'd be prefer to rent.
It's only my dad and myself in a three bedroom house, so we have a spare room, and hes enquired about renting it, but we dont have much of a clue about how much to charge him, anybody got any ideas?
to help out a bit,
He would pay for his own furniture
He could use the internet for free
I think the main factors he would have to pay for, bar the actual renting of a room are:
cost of electricty(as about the only thing he'll use himself is a light in his room, and occasionaly the tv and computer)
cost of water(minute i imagine)
cost of heating for shower/bath
sorry thats meant to say 'tenant in house' haha
