Following on from my other lengthy thread here, I'm curious to know, given that London rental prices are currently going mental, how much other people pay for similar properties in London, and whether your rent has massively increased recently. So this is a question specifically for people who live alone in 1 bed flats in London. I'm just curious (and partly scared) to find out. I feel as though if I didn't have savings, I'd actually have no choice but to leave London. Or move into a grotty house share and live in a box room.
