Would you mind telling me how much rent you pay per week at the mo?
and then rent+bills
I'm thiniking ogoing there.
I have some problems with the French department but the English sides great, same for the city itself.
Well thinking of doing English Language is an MA.
Did ou get to TVOTR in the end?
Whyman gave me his guestlist, the sweetheart. Sound was a bit duff though to be honest.
They'er a funky lot. Plus Eddie Murphy on Bass and keyboards.
No bills yet!
then it works out at maybe £50 on top of that with bills, inc. gas and electricity, water and tv/internet/phone package.
thats for a 5 person house in norwich
how nice your house is, where it is (both in the country, as well as your area), and how much you use power and stuff. but i would have thought about £75 is a decent guide
our water is 285/yr between 4 of us. Gas and lecky we're still not sure what it works out at.
I'm in Victoria Park, my friend has essentially the same house 3 doors down and is paying 70. Lots of silly people that went to Fallowfield are in smaller, shitty houses paying minimum 70 quid.
week. Fuck I'm daft.
place i might move in to in feb is £52 a week. this is in holloway (3 tube stops away from Kings Cross), very close to the tube station. it's a flatshare with two others and has no frontroom but we have our own kitchen/bathroom/toilet. i really really hope i get the place.
gas + electric are around £125 per quarter when split four ways
for rent. it's in woodhouse but it's a pretty nice house. i'm not actually a student but i live with students. i have no idea how much bills are because i can never be bothered to pay attentiion to bills. average, i suppose.
Was it your party?
but i noticed werk jagging a woodhouse halloween party on here.
It was full of old drugged up people.
Though I would say its worth paying more if you get a house in good condition that doesnt have damp, poor insulation, electrics etc and has got good heating, lighting and plumbing etc as well as a fridge washer+dryer. Oh, and dont ever expect to see your deposit back.
i don't really know how much the bills are as we haven't actually had to pay any yet.
Which for Exeter was pretty good, for 4 of us. Most people in Ex are usually on about £70
Bills... Errrrm can't remember to be perfectly honest.
In my first year in catered halls I was paying £108 a week, here in France, non catered mind but with an "en suite" I'm paying 199 euros a MONTH. Cheapest accommodation I've had and for the money it's great. This is all irrelevant, sorry. Unless bizzy finds it useful...
and that includes water, and we dont have gas, and dont pay council tax.
but then we've got a phone line with internet and electric to pay for, and obviously food and stuff.
which worked out at around 120 per quarter.
then about £20 per month for bills
like, alcxxk paid not much cos he was in wales which is shit. too_black_too_strong pays loads cos he's in oxford which is really expensive. the only people who its worth comparing to are people who are also in leeds. that being said, £80 seems pretty high compared to what my brother paid (though prices may have risen) and compared to what he pays now (though he isn't a student anymore).
but yeah. its only leeds students that you should be comparing to. what people are paying in oxford is basically completely irrelevant.
depending on where you're living/how many people you share with/how swanky your house is. i know it sounds stupid, but you just have to compare houses available to you with other houses available to you, decide what matters to you and how much you can afford to pay and evaluate to see what is the best option.
thanks a lot htrope.
I know some people there and they live waaay out in the sticks, takes loads off your bills but you only pay it again in bus/taxi fairs.
Really convenient place for students. The house looks gorgeous on pictures - huge bedrooms, huge kitchen, garden etc.
plus some more for leccy, gas, water, and sky
rent - £63 p/w
think bills work out at about £15 a week.
£70 a week last year in Leeds. It was a pretty nice house though.
that was Leicester and a big house near the city centre.
i think £60-£65ish is typical for headingley/hyde park. I paid £55 for a pretty standard house in burley just behind headlingley stadium. and where i am now is only £50pw for a nice cosy house which is very close to uni and hyde park, and within walking distance of the city centre.
£115 rent p/w.
i don't know about bills.
sometimes i don't pay them.
105 with gas and leccy on the meter. water was about 90 a year or something.
that's in north london
Plus bills. It's a nice house. And a the area's fine too, despite it's bad(ish) reputation.
i pay £300 a month, with bills another £25 on top of that maybe?
