#Tim Redmond on Dec 06, 2017 :
Sorry, I meant to add Gas and Electric charges at around £60 per month, and all these figures are for 1/2 bedroom apartment.
#Tim Redmond on Dec 06, 2017 :
The utilities costs are way out. Council Tax (for garbage, water, sewerage etc) is around £120.

With line rental, broadband (fibre) normally works out at around £70.
#Jonathan Naing on Jul 13, 2017 :
the rent prices for outside city centre for 1 bed are too high for both inside and outside city, compared to reality, please kindly research and amend.

These estimates are based on our experience living in Glasgow for the past 6 years. Some regions of Glasgow are very expensive such as West End, Bearsden, Milngavie and Newton Mearnes. Others are less expensive such as Govan, East End, Drumchapel, Maryhill, etc. You are most welcome to update the estimates at any time. Best wishes, SP.
