Well That's Just Cheating

Recommended Posts

Absolute standard practice when it comes to commercial property (eg a year rent free on a 15 year lease which keeps the headline rent up).

Very unusual on residential and a bit of a shite gimmick if you ask me.

Also a bit silly.

It will come up on searches for £200 per week, instead of £400 per week....

So the only people who will see it on a search will be the ones who had already decided it was double their budget.... very smart.

This is in my experience very common practise in Sydney Australia to attract people.

If you are a young couple without the deposit then you can move in straight away without having to cough up a large sum of money.

Also if you are on income support, or family credits its a good way of getting into a property you cannot afford then getting the council to top it up with Rent Benefits.

Not really going to apply to a property costing £1,600 pcm.
