[THIN] Re: OT: Advice Sought

But Gerard's Cross is quite a way west of London (It's where my Gran
lived for many years), near Beaconsfield. Absolutely lovely part of the
world, but not cheap (Though cheaper than London), and not on the tube.
There's trains into Marylebone, which is the nicest station in London -
about 30 minutes.

Also make sure to enjoy the model village - the trains are just great
!!!

I would also say that the car allowance should sit in the bank as public
transport in London is the obvious way to go unless you fancy a few
hours sucking fumes, empty bus lanes you can't drive in, speed cameras
every few yards and if you are lucky enough to find a parking space then
you will pay a small fortune for it outside where you live and where you
work

Hi, folks.

I have been offered a position in the UK, which I am scheduled to start
in December, assuming my work permit is issued.

Since, I've lived in the US all my life, and have only been to London 3
times, I would like to ask for some advice from the Brits on the list,
though any input is welcome.

Assuming an annual salary of 50K (nice round number), what might take
home pay be?

What areas for housing should I be looking at?  The office is located in
Gerrard's Cross, but I'll be doing loads of travelling, so I don't think
that I need to be in that area, exactly.

I plan on taking the bare minimum of possessions and re-acquire what I
need when I get over.  This includes my car.  I'll be getting a car
allowance.
Does this seem like a prudent plan?

Any advice would be appreciated, especially any items that I don't know
to ask.

Perhaps, if there are any ex-pats on the list,  you'd be willing to
advise me.

Thanks in advance,

Spencer Sun
