Currently my dad said I should start paying £600 a month.
If I treat this like a rented house it's essentially:
-all bills included including food.
-Gym is a 15 minute walk away (£18/mnth)
-work (near Marylebone station) is an hour away including 3 trains+bus (which costs £180 for a travel card).
So I'm effectively paying £800 inclusive of everything a month.
I make about £1400 a month and a healthy amount of savings (although I'd just want my pay to cover everything) . I'm open to moving out, so long as I still have some money to put away. Ideally I'd like to rent at a similar price to what my parents offer (or more if it's worth it)
One of the main things I'd like to do is move closer to work. Commuting I hate (2 hours of my life wasted a day + cramped).
I assume all the costs I only care about are:
-rent + council tax
-all utility bills including wifi
-travel (if not in walking distance)
Can I get some advice from those who have moved out and are living in London?
Is it possible to find a place near Marylebone for around £600 realistically?
I found a place that is a 25 minute walk away and its £600, all bills included (with wifi), but should I be sceptical? Etc
I'm quite new to this and worried about making a big mistake especially with contracts involved
