Chelmsford Rooms to Rent Availability:

Due to the quality of the rooms that we offer, we operate with a very high occupancy rate and therefore our rooms are in high demand. However, due to the number of rooms that we have we do have a regular, small supply of rooms becoming available and so it is advisable to contact us as soon as possible if you are interested in any of our rooms or would like further information.



The price of the room relates to the size of the room itself and the facilities that the property has to offer. As a guide:


Single rooms (£425 per month) – These rooms would include a single bed and mattress, wardrobe, chest of drawers, desk and chair.


Double rooms (£475 per month – £550 per month) – Some double rooms are suitable for two people and the price would then be increased by £20-£25 extra per week. These rooms would include a double bed and mattress, wardrobe, chest of drawers, desk and chair.


Ensuite rooms (£550 per month – £600 per month) – These rooms would include a double bed and mattress, wardrobe, chest of drawers, desk and chair. You would also have your own dedicated ensuite facility contained within your bedroom.


All prices are inclusive of gas, electric, water, Council tax, wireless broadband, weekly cleaner, gardener and off road parking. In some properties there are washing machines and tumble dryers which require a small amount of money whenever they are used to cover running costs.



If you are renting a room in one of our properties in Chelmsford we will issue you with an AST (Assured Shorthold Tenancy) which is a standard document for renting rooms and properties. Ideally we would like every tenant to sign for at least 6 months however we can be flexible and offer shorter tenancies should you require it. Please speak to us about your circumstances if that is the case.



You pay a deposit equal to the equivalent of one months rent which is then registered with the Deposit Protection Service. This is then returned to you at the end of your tenancy. Deposits must be paid in advance of moving into a room and must be in cleared funds if you wish to move in quickly.
