Hi marc,

Right now I'm now still in the Phlippines, but I'm considering living in London for 2 years. I would like to rent a place, or share an apartment, what's the best option that will not cost a lot of money and also can enjoy the convenience of living? Need your advice. Tks a lot!

Hi danny,

Do you want to live in the city, or outside of it, the best way to know is to know what zone you want to be in (zone - london underground), I m in zone 5 at the moment and prices atr prety expensive, whereever you go from zone 1-5 you will easily be able to get into the city, do you have any places in mind?

By the way, I would like to rent near Canada Square. But I guess the rental there is very expensive. tks. I'm not familiar with London, but this is my next destination to experience. Do you enjoy your stay in London? If you don't mind to share some of your stories in London, I'd love to listen. Tks!

yeah i have lived here for 18 years, im 19 so never lived anywhere else, im actually moving to dubai soon, but i know London very well (obviously)

Canary wharf is very expensive as you would expect, i would reccommend renting near Limehouse, or Westferry where the DLR (docklands light railway) is only a few stops from canada square. for a 1 bed or 2 bed apartment you are probably looking at around 1100-1400 per month, but it depends on what you want, dont worry about having a nice place there as pretty much all of the buildings are no more then 10 years old, and are all very modern (wood flooring, neutral e.t.c). what would you be looking for in terms of bedrooms? If you want to be on the waterfront then expect to pay more, also you could look on the other side of the Thames near Greenwich which is also very nice.

Another good website is Properties for sale, homes to rent, overseas property, retirement properties and new homes on rightmove.co.uk - you can check out the prices of rentals all over the UK.

yes rightmove.com, findaproperty.com are all great websites, if you do not want to use an agent i reccomend Gumtree.com where people post alot of there own flats.house (landlords direct) but be warned agents still use it to advertise and there is alot of scam and rubbish on there.
