What people say
My experience of Berkshire Living is very positive. All issues are resolved quickly and with professionalism.I’ve lived in the same house for 2 years and the place is cleaned and maintained to a high level. I would recommend Berkshire Living for accommodation in London.
Berkshire Living made what can be a stressful experience finding a house in London so easy.They found me the perfect house with great flatmates. I loved the fact that my bills were included and no one had to sign their name up to a power or gas bill.I recommend Berkshire Living to everyone I know moving over to London for their big OE.
How do I book a Berkshire Living property?
Following your viewing of our available rooms, we will send you an email outlining the upfront payment that is needed to stop viewings on the particular room you would like to book. This upfront payment consists of our non-refundable administration fee, a deposit, and one month’s upfront rent. The email will also provide you with a link to our online application form, which will need to be completed for us to process your application.

What fees do you charge?
Berkshire Living charges no fees! To reserve a home you pay a holding deposit, charged at £200 for a home which comes off your first rental payment
In the event you fail referencing or choose not to proceed with the property the £200 holding deposit is not refunded.
Our lettings team will work with you prior to taking up referencing to ensure you have every opportunity to pass. If the lettings team felt you would not pass the referencing check, we will refund the holding deposit.
There will be no hidden or additional charges after you have paid this holding deposit. As we do not use estate agents there are no additional agency fees or renewal fees and there is no charge for opening or closing inventories and recording a schedule of condition.
There is a one off end of tenancy cleaning fee which is £90 for a room. This ensures from a property condition perspective, you get your deposit back in full!
