I recently moved over, last week to be precise. Staying with Friends in Stratford on an Airbed at the minute, not ideal, but it's brilliant for the time being until I find my feet.
I'm working as a Site Engineer, so will be working all over the City, no set position, so I'm looking for a nice area anywhere on a good Tube Line. Finchley and Clapham have been mentioned to me as nice areas, but I hear the Northern Line is always choc'o'block.
My Girlfriend is planning on moving over to me when I get settled in, so I'm looking for accommodation for 2 really.
In a perfect world I'd like to get our own Appartment if viable, but wouldn't mind sharing if we had to. Some place with a Balcony or place to have Barbeques would be sweet. A Building with it's own Gym/Pool, wishful thinking I assume. Budget we would have would be £1200 but we could stretch a little if a top place came up.
Is there much Apartments with underground or safe, out of site, car parks? Would there be much extra cost for this?
I've called into a few Estate Agents here in Stratford, but they weren't very helpful when I mentioned I was looking for accommodation in other areas.
Does anyone know of any helpful Letting Agents that would be worth trying? Is my budget realistic? Any other suggestions for areas to look in?
