To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
Although I am expecting a certain percentage of splatts, I need advice.
My son, who lives in the US has been offered a job in London with a starting salary of pretax 55K. Is this a reasonable salary for a 20 something who will need to get a flat, probably around Paddington and still have a few quid for beers and West Ham etc.?

Now that sounds like a plan. I wouldn't be surprised if the fella in Paddington decides to follow him out there, as Paddington is a bit of a nothing place.

My eldest son in his early twenties has just moved from Ealing to Acton. He really likes that area and it is handy for nights out in central London too.

Bungo...Stockley Park but he likes the idea of Paddington as he knows someone from his college that lives there. It seems that from the suggestions, Paddington will be too expensive as he wants to live on his own.
I suggested he might look at Ealing Broadway as its on the Elizabeth LIne and could be an easy commute.

Anyhow thanks all for the help.

The blue ridge mountains are quite nice actually. Asheville is a fantastic city, although it's becoming less affordable like everywhere else.

Re: To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
Will he be working near Stockley Park or Paddington? Two very different places.

Rent & commuting will probably eat about £2000 of that pcm figure.

Will he need to hire/buy a car?

Charoo 7:09 Mon Oct 24
Re: To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
He’ll clear about £3400 pcm on that.

Not bad for a 20 year old with some rent to pay and his cock to keep.

Re: To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
That's over half 6 figures. He'll be OK.

I don’t think a twenty something from the U.S. will want a village setting……

Re: To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
If I was your relative, I'd buy a small gaffe around Hitchin and commute by car or move up outside Staines into one of the villages, they're not bad

The only people who can afford to live in London are the very rich or people on benefits.

Re: To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
That’s a good salary for a 20 something and about the minimum required for some living near central to have a decent life.

Good luck to your lad

Yeah I think me and you eat at different places Hermit fella... starters and deserts?? The Steaks I have are normally the size of a shetland pony... no chance of a starter and a desert

Used to run a contract with a site in Stockley Park, there are loads of properties for rent round there and its not massively expensive mainly because its a shit hole. Its not particularly dangerous or anything, just ugly and boring.

Re: To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
You won’t get a steak over there for anywhere near a comparable one here at a better price, even at $1.50. Doubt you could at any time in the last 5 years.

Cheaper place I go to is $40 for a steak (that’s $48 with tip), then you have sides, drinks, starters, afters.

Re: To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
Job offer sounds good but don't try to rent near Paddington. The new Elizabeth Line opens up a lot of options.

Re: To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
Hermit... I've had some of the best steaks I have ever had over there and probably top price I have paid is $32... yeah shit when it's $1.10... but fucking superb $1.50+. Too be fair we don't do poncey restuarants same as I don't here...very happy with a Longhotns, Bahama Breeze or any type of diner... great meal for a couple with drinks for around $60... oh yeah not including the 18% tip. Agree with you regarding bread... and its shit as well

I bought a 3 bed town house for $71k in the early nineties, you couldn't find a shoebox for that amount now

Re: To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
Sold you’re way out of date on cost of living for clothes/shopping.

Properties are still a lot cheaper over there because of the amount of land they have but they are catching up especially in desirable areas. Groceries and every day stuff is in a different league and has been for a while. We’ve got a place out there and go a few times a year and are well away from tourists.

Bread is probably twice the price as here, same with milk, veg, meat and fruit. Petrol is cheaper for sure but then you have to do twice as much driving.

As for a meal out, for a bog standard restaurant in Delray Beach you could be eating in a Michelin star place in London and you wouldn’t be expected to leave a 22% tip either.

Re: To the Oracle of Knowledge that is WHO
If he is working at Stockley park and travelling from Wesr Drayton Station it might be worth looking towards the other end of the line towards Maidenhead.
He could always pop down to York road and watch Devo, boys.
