Hello, I have a question about rents in London-Is it possible to rent a 1BR flat in the London vicinity for $400.00 US? I am under the impression that London is one of the more expensive cities, and am sceptical of this figure.

Maybe if it's 1980. :P

What's "London vicinity"? Like Dagenham?

I would assume it means London and the surrounding areas. No idea what the area is called, just that is in walking distance to Whitechapel. Let's say a 10 mile radius of the city-Do you know approximately the average rental in lets say a working class area would be?

$400.00 a week, maybe. Not $400.00 a month.

I did a quick search of available flats to let in that area of London, and the least expensive I could find in walking distance of Whitechapel was a one bedroom in Stepney for 260 per week. That'd be about $1,632 per month, US dollars.

Maybe a bed sit? I really don't know - never looked for other than hotels or B&B's in London.

Thanks, I didn't think this was true. Turns out that the person claiming it also insists that Normandy is in England. We were writing a novel together, and I found many of his facts to be suspect. Think I'll go it alone now.

Well, Normandy was part of England about 750 years ago. Maybe leesaleesa's friend hasn't kept up on current events. ;)

Lol. The copy so far is very colorful, but I don't think it'll sell. Not sure how a book about a murder/mystery set in Florida and Louisiana becomes a Da Vinci Code ripoff that has one character with a really good realtor living in a surprisingly affordable flat in London, Normandy England.

Maybe you should think twice about this!

Yeah, the partnership, she is dissolved. By the time it got around to Russian Tartars and fake Turks with mysteriously Mexican acents, who are ancient Celts from Wales, I threw the towel in for good.

:lol: I don't know. After reading this bit I think it would make a fabulous comedy.
