I live in a Springs 4M (2 bed mid terrace)Rather than start a new thread on the same topic, can I bring up a similiar question here -
We are currently renting in the Marina but I want to more to Springs. I have a 2 bed Villa in mind (Type 4E/4M end terrace) and I want to get a good idea of the monthly running costs, primarily DEWA / Du -Etisalat / Show sports etc. + deposits required before I commit to it.
I've read through a lot on this forum and a lot of the DEWA bills quoted seem to be for large villas with pools which don't reflect our situation. Both of us work 5 days a week - no kids, so house not used most of the week.
Thanks you, that's not as bad as we'd budgeted for!I live in a Springs 4M (2 bed mid terrace)
Du bill will be the same as anywhere, think it's 2000 deposit (costs more for villa than flat) then we pay 289/month for phone, internet and basic tv
DEWA bill is between 600 up to 1250 in summer. We work 5 days a week also and no kids also so AC is off during the day. Bear in mind the A/C in springs is pretty rubbish though. Also this includes chiller as Springs does not have district cooling so it comes from electricity.
And I pay 200/month for a gardener to water the garden every day.
