Well this all depends on usage and consumption. But normally the bills inclusive option for landlords normally charge £ 15 per week per person(GAS- the gas bill normally the most expensive bill around £3 to 5 per week per person Assuming you use this for the heasting and hot water(using electricity as a form of heating will normally be more expensive),ELECTRICITY and WATER and INTERNET). for an average shared house around 4 or 5 people sharing .We suggest if your economical and dont waste energy , you should be able to get in down to £ 10 per week per person. Again these are only guidelines to help and the amount could vary depending on service provider and supplier and energy use behaviour.
