Move to London
Finding a house in London was interesting, as the houses move so quickly. Houses can last a matter of hours before they are viewed and secured. After viewing many houses on the first day of a few days in London, we had secured a flat in Acton. A few days later, after I had emailed our estate agents “Austin D’arcy” to again request a contract, and they replied saying that they had given the flat that we had secured to another estate agent. Upon hearing this news, I quickly phoned up all of the other estate agents that I’d seen on that Wednesday, and managed to find just one other property, our second choice, was still available. I then did everything I could to secure this property, and our offer was accepted, this time with Aston Rowe estate agents.
Now in London
We have now moved into our new house in Acton, a short central line tube ride from work. Me and my new flatmates have been taking advantage of our few days off before work to explore London.
We have explored Westminster, had lunch in Camden Town, and rode around Hyde Park on the Barclays hire bicycles.
Can’t wait to start work on Monday!
