As the cost-of-living crisis continues, it is causing a massive increase in people seeking bills included rental properties.
In a study of Zoopla data, Money.co.uk has revealed the top 10 cities in England and Wales for bills included rentals.
Preston was the city with the highest proportion of rental properties listed as having bills included. Of 809 properties listed in the area overall, 488 have bills included, this is a whopping 60.3%.
Preston has a size of 142.3 km² and a population of 147,900, so rental properties are in high demand.
The city with the second highest amount of rental properties with bills included is Middlesborough. This city has just 157 properties listed in the area overall, however, 93 offer bills included, making up 59.2% of all rental properties.
Although just 1.1% less than Preston, the city is considerably smaller in size at just 53.88 km², so there are far fewer properties on the market.
Lincoln is the UK city with the 3rd highest amount of rental properties listed as having bills included.
Lincoln has 355 rental properties listed overall, with 185 of these stated as having bills included in the price. This makes up just over half of all total properties at 52.1%, 7.1% less than Middlesborough.
