Cost-of-Living Forces Home Renters to Search for Properties with Bills Included

When you’re looking for a new home to rent, what tops your “must-have” requirement list? Is it a balcony with a river view, or maybe bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms are more of a priority?

During the height of the pandemic, property searches showed that prospective tenants were mostly searching for homes with outside spaces, in more rural areas.

Whilst we all have our own preferences for what we type into the search bar when we commence our property search and start looking for a new place, there is one nationwide search term that is on the increase for people who are renting, jumping into second place as the most searched term so far this year*: the phrase “bills included”.

Given the cost-of-living crisis and ever-rising energy bills, it isn’t surprising that home renters are looking to secure the best deal they can find, favouring all-inclusive bills over garden spaces in the country. And with February’s announcement that water bills are set to rise by an eye-watering 7.5% this year, and as much as 12% in some parts of the country, too many UK residents will be worrying about more than just how they’ll make their electricity payments, they’ll be worrying about their utilities billing as a whole.

And as the cost-of-living crisis grips the nation, having utility bills included in your monthly rent can make a world of difference, with the home renter being able to live freely without the worry of soaring, uncapped energy bills.

Unfortunately for the average home renter in Liverpool and across the UK, landlords and rental estate agents who offer rental packages which include all utilities are few and far between.

That’s why Tick Property Group, based in the heart of Liverpool city centre, are happy to provide rental properties with the possibility of bills included. If you rent with Tick, whether it is a short-term rental you want or long-term rental, you can:

You’ll be able to spend less time worrying about water rates or how to pay your electricity bill, and more time doing the things you love in Liverpool.

I have never experienced customer service like this in my life, genuinely.

Viewing on the bank holiday, keys the same day! These guys don’t seem to stop and take a break.

Tick have been great. I have never had to worry about a thing! All the staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Renting my first home was daunting so the 24 hour service was a huge weight off my shoulders. I would recommend Tick properties to anyone.
