London Living for Expats | Man & Vans
London is known for its unique tourist attractions, rich culture and constant city buzz. As most of us already know London is quite populated which makes house hunting a mission and a half. It can become rather daunting when you decide to move to London but have no idea where to start. Fortunately, London does have accommodation options contrary to popular belief that are budget friendly.
Surprisingly, London does not fall under one of the world’s most expensive cities for expats. However, the cost of living and accommodation remains rife in the UK’s capital.
The ideal thing to do when moving to London is to determine where exactly you would like to live that fits in with your budget limitations. Keeping in mind the proximity to the supermarkets as well as giving some thought to how long your commute to work job will be.
Expats wanting to bring their whole family should consider more spacious grounds at affordable rates. The further one moves away from the centre of London, the more affordable it will become.
Here is a unique layout of the city when viewing it from the Zone point of view:
-Zones 1 & 2: Close to the city centre, accommodation is more expensive and hard to find
-Zones 3 & 4: Semi-detached homes and tenement units
-Zones 5 & 6: Cheapest accommodation, transport into the city is an issue during peak times
