So I'm about to start my first real job and I'm planning to rent a flat in london (where the job is) ph34r.gif

I stayed at home with my family while at uni so I'm totally clueless about the whole thing...

Anybody got any advice? If you have any tips about what to look for when looking for flats, what questions to ask potential landlords etc. that would be really helpful smile.gif

I mostly have a cupboard of condiments and tins of tomatoes. All it takes then is a minimal amount of actual ingredients and you can make great tasting dishes for not much dosh.

I thought it was SNU SNU, not FUFU lol! Sorry just noticed that now.

Anyway hope the looking into things and moving is going okay Crazymat. Not sure how the housing market is over there, over here in Ontario it seems to be slowly improving again. Cheers!
