Recently started a new job in that there London and been moving between friends’ flats and sofas for the last few months, but now need to find somewhere to live permanently.
Started looking last night and got a bit overwhelmed with how much choice there is, so looking to narrow the search down a bit. General criteria:
- £1400pm budget for rent
- 2-3 bed (living with my gf & a friend so 2 is fine)
- within 30-40 minute travel time to central London
- would be nice if it had some pubs, cafes, shops etc nearby so not in the middle of nowhere
Initial searches were in Peckham, New Cross, Finsbury Park, Stratford, and there seems to be a fair bit within our budget in each that isn’t terrible.
Anyone lived in or round these areas, or have any reccomendations of similar places to look instead? General advice or suggestions of areas to concentrate in would be appreciated too.
