Relocating in London can be just as tough as relocating to London!
Now I know we tend to focus on the myriad of factors that surround international relocation to London, and the different aspects of moving to London. There are, however, people that plan their relocation to London from within the UK or who are looking at relocating in London after they have arrived.
We help dozens of people each year who move to London first, are pressured into taking the first available flat after days and weeks of searching and several different agencies, only to stumble onto London Relocation and use our services. Part of our appeal is that we guarantee our service, and we do out best to get it done in just One Day.
Today we take a look at the added challenge faced by students moving to London and relocating in London to be closer to college or university.
Students Moving to London
Each year thousands of university graduates make their way from across the British Isles and Europe to London to look for work and make their way in the bustling metropolis that is the city of London. It can be just as hard to find accommodation in London as a university graduate as it is for Americans moving to London. Living in London is expensive and you may want to consider house sharing for a while or living further out of the city until you can afford to move into one of the more expensive areas.
Estate Agents – Students, Graduates and Expats
Estate agents can charge a great deal of money to set up a lease agreement and unless you know the city of London very well, you may be paying more than you should. You may have to get your parents to sign as guarantors for an apartment if you have not established credit with one of the banks. If you’re planning on moving to London after your graduation from university, and you haven’t lived in the city before, you’re in exactly the same boat as the thousands of expats moving to the UK each year. Consider getting professional help to make the adjustment easier and to get you firmly on the road to work and life in a new city.
For Americans moving to London you may not especially love the area you are living in when you arrive in London and may be looking for something after you arrival that is more suitable. This is where having a London relocation services company is such a good idea. We know what it is like to be an expat in a foreign city and not know which area of the city that you’ll love.
