Sally Asling – Letting Director at SurreyLets states: “The average price for a 4 bedroom rental property in both Bookham and Effingham is in the region of £2500 – 3000pcm with 5 bedrooms reaching up to £3500pcm on average, however there is a severe shortage of stock in the Bookham and Effingham rental markets across all price categories which are effectively pushing rentals up. Whilst the corporate market has slowed down, the slack is being picked up by the sheer number of people renting as they are self building or extensively renovating their own homes. If you are thinking of renting your property, SurreyLets are confident we can get you the maximum rental for your property in any price range.”
