In college at the minute and currently living in a chalet in a lovely family estate in Doughiska in Galway City with my partner. The chalet is behind the main house where it's garden should be and there are tenants in the main house. We're currently paying 860 per month for a small chalet that has a kitchen, bedroom and dwarf ensuite and have the use of our own kitchen and cooker etc.
So I'm wondering what the rent should be for this house (if you want to call it that). A few things to note - the house was built a year ago. There is a very bad problem with dampness especially when we have a shower as it's such a confined space. The heaters are electric and run up the bill very badly. There is a bad draft in the house and we find it very hard to heat it. There's a built in wardrobe in the bedroom but it's tiny and also there's very little storage in the place. We pay our own wifi and the rest of the bills are shared with the main house.
Personally, I think our rent is very expensive. It started out as 750 rent with 50 Euro for bills and has only gone up since we moved in. Would love your opinions!
