As office working has become a thing of the past for most of us, the need to live in close proximity to a place of work is no longer a deciding factor when choosing a home.
According to the Office for National Statistics, with 46.6% of people now working from home, 57.2% of whom live in London, the rise in home working has led to renters searching for bigger homes with capacity for a home office, and as such, has shifted the interest properties on the outskirts of London, slightly further out of the city.
Developments on the outskirts of London are also more popular with families or workers who are searching for a bit of peace and quiet away from the busy city. If you are finding yourself looking for an affordable place to live in London, this guide explains the cheapest places to live in London with our latest London developments.
