Transferred to London - Let's Hear the Latest on Where to Live
Hello to all the London colleagues. Slapped with an expat transfer earlier this month and although I've already been onboarded by some company-sponsored relocation people it's quickly become apparent I'll have to do this myself.
Need the latest 2020 advice for where to go; here's my situation: office is basically Victoria station, 27 y/o, looking for a "full-service" type apartment complex (gym, pool, concierge, ideally some commercial on 1st floor, etc.), 2.5-3.1K GBP budget, looking for a young professionals neighborhood (25+) up and coming or not doesn't matter, lots of dining and bar/nightlife walking distance, decently close to a relevant tube line OR sub 30min walkable.
My notes thus far: Shoreditch, Clapham (do newbuild complexes exist here?), Battersea between park and power station and Brixton. Where am I wrong? And right?
Let's hear it gents - what do you got? Also, what's the latest on incentives or lack thereof considering the market? What am I not thinking about expenses wise besides the deposit? Is the market getting tighter or looser lately?
