How to minimise the detrimental impacts of the cost-of-living crisis on co-housing setup
This week starting 16 May 2022, we will be working with those renters who have been forced to take the co-living path/option in the property market. We are as well going to work with private landlords/ladies who provide or may want to provide co-living accommodation. There are reasons why the two sides of co-living agreement may want this sort of arrangement.
Why do renters co-live and landlords/ladies provide co-living properties?
Not everybody can afford to rent outright the full house or flat by themselves. Those living on low income may be forced to share with others. They could as well have serious other reasons pushing them to go co-living. Amongst the co-living renters, there are young people, students, families, older generation, etc.
Landlords/ladies may too have their own motive that leads them to provide this sort of accommodation. It is could more convenient or cost-effective for them to invest in this sort of co-living properties than to letting and managing other types of properties.
Whatever the reason both landlords/ladies and renters may have, they need to understand this rental model before embracing it.
What is a co-living home?
Within the property jargon or literature, co-living home is on average defined as a residential home living model that accommodates two or more biologically unrelated people or individuals. It is part of sharing economy and can have some benefits such as access to locations (or areas) and properties that a co-living renter may otherwise not afford. However, like any other products or services in the housing market, the co-living rental model has not been exempted from the damaging effects of the current cost-of-living crisis.
Cost-of-living crisis as a challenge or opportunity to co-living setup
The cost-of-living crisis could be a challenge or an opportunity for the two sides of the rental agreement.
~ Landlords/ladies and the cost-of-living crisis
The cost-of-living crisis could be an opportunity for landlords/ladies to raise rent and services related to their property to match up the current level of inflation. On the contrary, it could be a challenge if they are not able to meet the cost of running their property or upgrade it.
~ Co-living renters and the cost-of-living crisis
The cost-of-living crisis can be a challenge for renters who may have to face rising rent, utility bills, council tax and other services linked to the property they rent or may rent. On the other hand, it could be an opportunity for them if they receive support towards their rising rental costs.
So, a co-living rental model could have some challenges to address and opportunities to take for both landlords/ladies and co-living renters.
Navigating way out the challenges posed by the cost-of-living crisis
This week, we are going to work with both landlords/ladies and renters to find out ways of minimising the impacts of the cost-of-living crisis on co-living homes.
After working together with them, one can hope that each party will be able to navigate their own way out any negative impacts from the cost-of-living crisis on the co-living rental setup.
