Am I missing anything?

Monthly breakdown:

accommodation 17000 ( 3bed: 200k AED annual rent) Depends, 140 in Mirdiff..
school fees 3300 Dunno
nursery 2000 Dunno
car 8000 (monthly rental) How much? Is that for 2 cars? I've just rented a Mitsubishi Galant for 2400/month
fuel 150 Way too small, reckon on this a week
agency fee 2000 (24k AED annual fee) 5% deposit and 5% commission is usual (negotiable)
gym 1000 What's a "gym"?
elec/water 2000 On high side, prob nearer 1000/month
food 4000 Depends how much you eat, 2-3k is nearer the mark
entertainment 3000 I take it this does NOT include BEER????
Savings 12000 (not worth moving if no savings) Erm....
Total monthly 54450 AED

Wow, so the 36k AED per month I have been offered is totally unrealistic if I want to save, enjoy Dubai, school my children and live in a house comparable to the one I have in the UK?
Your choice, to come to Dubai for purely financial reasons is wrong, think of the greater experience and lifestyle....

BTW, Andy capp your Galant at 2400 per month, did you have to put a down payment on with that?
Ryan on 06 535 3871 mention Andy Capp, he'll give you the same deal AED2400 plus AED1000 deposit against fines etc. Ramadan special. Diamondlease. Mitsubishi Galant 2.4DE - it's like driving a motorised sofa but it's a good size and the air con is brilliant!
