The table below provide information
on rental charges and salaries in three areas of London.
Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information shown below.
You should write at least 150 words.
|Weekly rents per property (£/w)||Salaries needed (£/year)|
The table shows two sets of related information: the relative
cost, in pounds, of renting a property with one, two or three bedrooms in three
different suburbs of London and an indication of the kind of annual salary you would
need to be earning to rent in these areas.
Of the three areas mentioned, Notting Hill is the most expensive with weekly rents starting at £375 (salary approximately £100,000) and rising to £738 per week for a 3-bedroom property. To afford this, you would require a salary in the region of £200,000 per annum. Alternatively, Fulham is the cheapest area shown with rents ranging from £215 per week for a one bedroom property to £600 per week for a 3-bedroom property. To rent in this area, salaries need to be somewhere between £85,000 and £170,000 depending on the number of bedrooms required. For those able to pay in the middle price range for accommodation, Regent's Park might be a more suitable district.
