We've had a busy week, my son had to go flat hunting after receiving notice that his landlord was putting the flat he rents up for sale, he has been there for 4 years and liked it. Shame he couldn't afford to buy it but at £150,000 for a 1 bed it was out of his reach.
We spent 2 days viewing flats after spending 2 days looking on line. I found it hard to believe that some flats weren't even cleaned for people viewing, The cost for some was astronomical, Aberdeen is probably the most expensive place to stay in Scotland but £700 per month for a place where the kitchen was 6ftx 4ft and there was no hanging space / wardrobe in the bedroom really was shocking. He did eventually find a place which he liked but it really stretched his budget rent and council tax are £ 850 a month, then bills on top of that, but it is spacious and only a 5 min walk to his work.
