I am on site and pay just over £250 a month which is for the rent and water. Local commercial rent is very high so it is pretty good.

Re: Do you live on-site or have a tied house?

I'm in Essex and have a 3 bedroom semi just outside the school gates. I pay £84 a month and have done so for 18 years. They tried to put the rent up by £20 once and I politely told them that for them £20 was a spit in the ocean but for me it was a £20 pay cut and if they insisted on making me pay the extra I would be straight out the door. I never heard any more about it.
Don't argue with fools! They'll bring you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
