Rightmove allows individuals to choose suitable properties based on specific terms. While “bills included” wasn’t even among the top five searched terms in August last year, it became the topmost searched term by renters as of this month. This happened as individuals attempted to acquire more certainty regarding their outgoings when energy costs were skyrocketing.
