I'm considering taking a new contract in London and having worked in London for the past 5 months and commutted to and from my house (which is approx 4 hours each day) I've decided if I take another role in London I'm going to have to stay over during the week so I can stay sane and get some sleep.
When I've worked away before I've previously stayed in hotels for reduced long term rates or done room share type arrangements but I'm not keen on them much and its a 12 month contract so considering renting a 1 bed flat somewhere nearish to my client but a lot of the rental places i'm seeing do not include bills so I'm wondering what do other people do in this situation?
Do you just go for ones that have all bills included like electricity, gas, internet, & council tax or do you pay those bill also through the company?
Services apartments are really expensive in London from what I can see too so this isnt an option for me. I dont have enough deposit for a buy to let scenario either so renting a flat so I can leave some stuff over at the weekends or staying in a hotel and taking my stuff with me back home each weekend are my options
