Its unusual to get a monthly allowance in UK for accomodation. You might get a relocation allowance to cover the moving expenses and initial setup costs. Lots of people get a car allowance or transportation allowance (subsidised yearly travel card, etc).
Probably the employer would prefer to pay more base salary than give extra allowance.
