My son starts his first proper job soon and is in the process of looking for somewhere to live. He’s asked my how much rent I think he should pay and I have absolutely no idea. When he was a student he just went for whatever was cheapest and the bills were usually included. Now that he’s working he’d like to live somewhere nicer. He knows he’ll probably have to pay bills and council tax, he’ll also have to factor in travel. He’s very frugal but I think it’s important that he’s able to afford a social life and save a bit each month What percentage of income would you suggest a young person spends on accommodation?
