Have web skills? Then you’re paying too much for rent

The increasing need for software development and web-based digital skills is a hot topic these days, and it’s hard to go more than a week without hearing about how in-demand the tech savvy are. 

But what those with essential coding skills don’t know is they should be using their advantage to wrangle cheap rent in The City. 
One resourceful landlord in need of some web design help has offered a room in his five bedroom house for £1 a month, provided the tenant will help him develop his web application. 
The overwhelming response he has seen led to him admitting he had opened a “Pandora’s box” and suggests more landlords could offer accommodation in exchange for skills. 
But Downtime advises erring on the side of caution when it comes to such offers, after all there’s no such thing as a free lunch.
