COVID-19 - how it affects renting

Double room in 2 bed flatshare with parking space

Ad ref# 15512188

A double room in a lovely two bed flatshare with **PARKING INCLUDED** is available to rent now. The flat is roughly 10-15mins walk to Leeds city centre and is near to key road commuter links for M1/M621/M62.

I have really enjoyed living in this cosy flatshare on the edge of Leeds city centre, but I'm moving out because I have bought elsewhere. That means I'm looking for someone to take my room. The flat is let by a friendly and reliable private landlord who has been excellent, and you'll be sharing with my lovely flatmate Maddy. While the ad states 29th November, the move in date is flexible and the room could be available as early as 14th November if you wish.

The flat:
The room available is a double and the rent is £395 per month. Everything considered (parking etc) this has got to be the best deal I’ve ever had in Leeds city centre - and i’ve rented a lot of flats in the last 13 years! The other room has an ensuite, which means this room has sole use of the house bathroom. There is an open plan kitchen and living room, and a proper balcony (not a fake juliette balcony) that makes a perfect spot for enjoying the sunshine and a glass of wine in the warmer months. Please note, the flat is let UNFURNISHED so will you need to bring or acquire your own furniture. I can leave you a large wardrobe in the room, however. I’ve also left my sofa and coffee table with my flatmate but if you have your own I can get rid of them. There is one allocated parking space included with the flat. My flatmate doesn't drive so it would be available for you to use. There's free on street parking around the development for visitors (when the covid restrictions are lifted and you'e allowed to have visitors again!)

Your flatmate:
You'll be living with my current flatmate Maddy. She's a solicitor and she just moved in a couple of months ago. We've got on really well and I'm very sad to leave her, so I'm hoping to find someone who will be a suitable flatmate for her. She works really hard, often long hours, but appreciates a chat in the evening. And she has wicked sense of humour!

The bills:
The flat is all electric. In total the electricity, water, council tax and broadband are roughly £146 each per month at the moment.

The area:
The flat is in the Bouverie Court development, which is fairly quiet as the other residents are mostly professionals and young families. It's certainly not what I would consider to be a 'student-y' development. Echo central and X1 flats are next door to Bouverie Court. You can walk into the centre of Leeds in roughly 15 mins. There's also really easy access to the link roads for the motorways, which means it's really handy for commuting. ie, you can be on the M1 or M621 in a couple of minutes.

Other things to note... the landlord will require a £500 deposit when you sign the tenancy agreement, which will be held in the deposit protection scheme. You will also need to pay for a credit check costing approx £47. There are no other fees besides that. You'll be signing a new joint tenancy agreement when you move in along with the current flatmate. Ideally the landlord would like this to be 12 months but he would consider 6 months. The landlord is very responsible and easy to deal with. He's been great whenever there have been any issues in the flat.
