Myself and my girlfriend are relocating to London after university (we both live in rural Devon at the moment – quite a change, then!)
For the first year or so, while I’m doing law school, we will have to live off her teacher’s salary. She will be working in Thamesmead West, and we are looking to live in or around the Greenwich area because it seems very nice. I was wondering if you had any advice on where would be the best places for us to be looking, if we have a rental budget of about £850pcm? Is it realistic for us to be looking in East Greenwich, or will we have to venture further afield like Lewisham, Charlton etc..?
I have to confess I haven’t really been keeping much of an eye on rentals around Greenwich recently but I have a horrid feeling you’ll be struggling to find very much in central Greenwich for that sort of money, I’m afraid. But I could be wrong.
Have you rented recently? What’s the going rate? And where would you suggest for Matt and Mrs Matt to look?
