    Hiya, i've been thinking about moving out after I graduate and wanted to know what the risks were in renting a house/flat with having very little saved.

    I've figured that if i can get a job after graduation and have saved up 2 months rent as a deposit, this would be enough for me to rent a place and also still have money coming in each month.

    However, id like to know what the risk would be other than losing my job if it came to that.

    Also i would be living with my girlfriend who already has a job but i would be paying for stuff like rent and food whilst she save's up.

    easier said than done these days. i'd get a job first to have a bit of security, then start renting.

    My girlfriend has a pretty good job and were hoping we can actually buy a place of our own.

    And it's always been that i tend to pay for food whenever we eat in or out. I cook quite a lot as well, she's pretty hopeless at that. Don't know why really.

    As for the job, i've already been told by my boss from my summer job that he'd be happy for me to go permanent once i graduate providing i pop in once a month to see how things at the company are going.

    Hmmmm.. Maybe you could both chip in with the rent and food for the first couple of months? Then afterwards you could start saving for a house?
