Hello all, I'm planning a move to Leeds and have a few questions if anyone could help, I'd very much appreciate it! 1) We are hoping to live in Chapel Allerton, as I have read about it and it seems like a great place. However it also appears some ads are advertising properties with a CA address that are in fact in other areas that are perhaps less nice. Can anyone advise which are the nice areas to live in in CA or in fact any other areas (looking also at Moortown and Meanwood and Roundhay, but I really want to be close to city centre). 2) Would Gbp£900-£1000 realistically be enough to rent a house? 3) What is council tax and what does it cover? I know it can be substantial but it also covers bin collection (I think) unlike in Ireland where you don't pay the tax but pay for your bins. What else does it cover? 4) In addition to the above, are there any extra bills/taxes in UK that are not in Ireland? (appreciate only a person who lived in both will know this!) 5) Most / A lot of properties seem to be unfurnished unlike here where the vast majority are furnished. What sort or level of furnishing is normal? What is the situation with white goods - do they usually come in an otherwise unfurnished house? Is it cheaper to rent an unfurnished property? As we will be moving with very little by way or furniture (our properties here have all been fully kitted out) we will have to buy beds sofas etc. Is there an ikea or any shops that are reasonable and most importantly will deliver quickly? 6) There seem to be a lot of extra fees for renting (ie estate agent fees). What else do tenants have to pay for? Is the situation regarding landlord/tenant maintenance of the property different (ie who organises and pays for maintenance issues) 7) Do I need to register with a specific doctor on the NHS? Is there a residency period? We will also have private health insurance but I assume this will be different to our insurance here as we don't have a similar system to the NHS. What is the approximate fee to see a GP? 8) Buying a car - I presume there's just tax and insurance, is there anything extra? Should I get a UK licence? 9) Opening a bank account - how difficult is this? Obviously I will need an address first 10) Anything else worthwhile knowing?? Appreciate this is a lot of questions but any assistance is welcome!
