      I currently live in a family-owned house and I expected to continue staying there until I finish my course.

      Accomodation

      Lots of students nearby, but I live on a street with families in other houses. It’s relatively cheap (for London) with Barons Court tube station nearby. There are lots of local supermarkets nearby (coop, Sainsbury, Tesco, Waitrose) and a night bus with good connections to central London, as well as other clubs.

      Accomodation

      Last year we looked around March/April to get an idea of what we were looking for. Started properly looking mid June, signed a contract in July.

The market is so competitive in London that they don’t care.
