Property to Let in Borehamwood and Elstree
There are many advantages to renting a property rather than buying, and it needn’t be seen as something which is reluctantly foisted upon you due to the lack of affordable homes in desirable areas. In fact, Britain is unusual in this general preference of renting over buying, for example in Germany, only about 39% of the population own their own homes, compared to 60% in Britain.
The most obvious advantage of renting is of course the flexibility that it offers. If you are not happy somewhere or simply want to move on, you can easily “up sticks”, which would not be so easy to do if you had to sell your home first. Then there is the fact that homeownership comes with a lot of responsibilities and extra expense with the upkeep and maintenance, with no landlord to call on if the boiler breaks.
There are also many advantages to renting a home in Borehamwood. It is a lively town with many shops, offices, and also light industry. Located in South Hertfordshire, and only 12 miles from central London, Borehamwood is a highly desirable place to live, and also very convenient for commuters. There is fast and easy access into London via a high-speed train service from the Elstree and Borehamwood station, and also some London bus routes which go from the town into North London. Borehamwood is a thriving and growing area, with many new homes having been built over the past few years, and some first-rate schools. Borehamwood has been made famous by the Elstree Film Studios which saw the making of the Shining, the first three Indiana Jones films, and the first three Star Wars movies, amongst others.
