You can expect to pay:
Gas, Electricity, Water Rates, TV Licence (If there is a television in the property, even if it belongs to the landlord), Internet, Telephone, Council Tax (if any of the people who you are sharing with are not Students)
This will cost you :
Depending on your own personal consumption you can expect to pay between £10-£20.00 a week for utility bills. Council Tax is based on the value of the dwelling and is payable by all the residents who are not exempt from it.
If solely full time students occupy a property, they are exempt from Council Tax. In order to be given exemption as a full-time student, you will need to obtain a Council Tax Exemption Letter from the Student Hub (Level 3, Sherfield Building). Along with this, you will need a copy of your tenancy agreement, which together will need to be forwarded to the appropriate local Council.
