How much will it really cost to move out?
My b/f and I are looking to buy our own place. We have a good idea about the mortgage costs (arrrrrah!!!!) but we want to know about the utilities. Can anyone give me rough ideas of how much they spend on water, gas, electric, council tax, insurance etc on a 1 or 2 bedroom house or flat either per month or quarter. UK only though...Your help is most appreciated!

Whatever you work out on paper, it will always be more when it comes to the real thing so be careful and over budget.

i would allow £20 (per month) each for gas, elec, water, insurance. Council tax varies depending on what band your property falls in. You can find out this info from your local Council. It is probably even on their web site.

You need to ask people there, not here.

Ask the vendors for copies of their most recent utility bills, including council tax. When we sold our last place, the buyers asked to see our bills and we were happy to show them. Although others can give you an idea, this is the most accurate information.
