Default Costs of living in a house...

could someone break down the costs of living in a house, bearing in mind that i live in a town in lincs, not the center of london

Things like water, electricity, tv licence, sky etc etc, as a tenant.


I have no idea what things cost!


either in weekly or monthly...

house insurance differs (if the land lord isnt paying it), council tax is based on price of house when council tax banding came into effect, gas and leccy and water depends on usage, telephone..

so somewhere between 25p and £600 a month LOL

Mydirect debits for house stuff = £985 a month minus £200 loan so thats £785, no TV licence or sky in that lot though, 2 bed semi living on my tod so keeps the bills down a bit and get the council tax reduced by 25%

when I moved in I had fuck all left to buy a lot really, only managed to bring the stuff I had from my dads so the house looked a bit bare for a while, soon fills out though if you buy little bits every month and stuff.
