Surely your estimates of living cost are wrong: when I last lived there 10y ago rates were £1200 pa., low level of heating cost ~£600 pa, electricity was ~£400 pa and water/sewage charges were an additional £300. Shome mishtake surely?

What net monthly pay should one look at in Birmingham UK for family of 3 including a baby, assuming I rent out a flat for not more than £ 600 ~ 700 per month?
#Darren on Jul 01, 2016 :
Having £700 English pounds per week is more than plenty. You can rent a apartment in four oaks. Nice tree lined roads for one of your weeks £700. For one month. Then you have the other 3 weeks £700 remaining every month to entertain yourself :-)
