if you could get a 40 year repayment mortgage and you were looking for a 2 bed house then you will be paying about the same for rent as for repayment i.e £1100 a month i.e. £13,000 pa if it were over 30 years its more like £18,000 pa. Your income net of income/insurance tax is about 30K

btw if you do come to Oxford but want to chat about home - chat to the owners of Combibos cafe at the bus station

Oxford is a wonderful place to live in and so is under immense pressure from so many people wanting to live here. Over the last 30 years it has become very cosmopolitan and wealthy international families have made it their UK base because of the wide choice of independent schooling available here (and of course the two universities and other educational provision). Oxford is not able to expand its city boundaries because of the 'Green Belt' of protected-status countryside surrounding it and this makes it the most expensive place for accomodation (renting and buying) outside London. It is officially the LEAST affordable city (London included) in the UK on an accomodation:average income ratio

Hi,
I am an Indian and wants to live in uk for a month so can you suggest me where should i live my budget is £2000, would it be enough for my survival?
#Annon on Apr 01, 2015 :
Hi,

Oxford it's self is very expensive to buy but there are some lovely Towns around Oxford £38,000 is well above the average wage.

If you are renting I would say a three bed house is between £1000 and £2000 per month. check out

www.rightmove.co.uk they are the biggest website over here and will have the most up to date rates.


There are easy quick links to the rest of the country and train that gets you into the heart of London in under an hour every half an hour.

Can anyone give me an estimate of living cost vs. househeld income? Is it worth moving to UK?
