We Know Where to Find Affordable Homes for Rent in London

London is one of the most expensive cities in the world, and that makes finding affordable flats a challenging task. Many people come to the British capital in search of a high-paying job, a good education or a better life in general. This has made rental prices in London soar, even in so-called affordable areas. And so far, the market has shown no signs of slowing down.

The best areas for high-quality, affordable housing can be found in the East End of London. Our team of property experts have highlighted the following areas as the best value for money:


The Royal Borough of Greenwich includes the district of Eltham, one of the most affordable places to rent within Greater London. Here you can find offers under £1,000 per month – less than half the average rental fee in London overall.


Another affordable borough, Bexley, has the additional advantage of excellent transport links.

Within Bexley, we think Bexleyheath, Sidcup and Blackfen are all places to look for your next home. Erith is also a strong contender, although the surrounding industrial area makes it less appealing than other parts.


More options can be found in the slightly expensive East End borough of Havering. Within Havering, consider such districts as Rainham, Harold Wood and Hornchurch.

These areas won’t be for everyone, and it’s important to keep looking until you find a home that matches your criteria. Other affordable boroughs you may want to consider are:

  • Barking and Dagenham
  • Redbridge
  • Bromley
  • Enfield
  • Sutton

And if none of these suit, we have several options in the west London as well, particularly for those who are willing to spend a bit more to find the perfect home. In the district of East Bedfont, located in the Borough of Hounslow, you can find affordable housing for under £1,500 per month.
