There is a great variety of options in the UK. It is sometimes a good idea to live in temporary accommodation for a while and take the time to visit various areas and try the commuting options before committing to one definite address.
The housing market is very fast, especially in London, so if you visit a property you like don’t wait to long to make an offer.
Some properties are available furnished or it is also possible to rent furniture for an unfurnished property. The kitchens are usually offered complete with appliances.
