    Morning everyone,

    Hope your all well,

    I am considering moving out (problems with my other half!) and looking to rent a little place of my own. This is only a thought at this stage. At the minute I live in his house, he handles bills and things I just pay him my rent.

    I really dont know how to work out if I can afford this. I'm trying to think of the bills and things I would need to pay and what amount they would be.
    All I can think of at the minute is council tax, water, gas and electricity. Things like phones and things I already pay I know just not sure about the rest.

    Please dont say if you dont want to but is there anything else I have missed and what do things like water, gas and electric usually cost to someone living in a 1 bed flat on their own?!

    Any help would be really appreciated xxxx

    You might want contents insurance too.

    There would be a 25% reduction on CT as you would be alone.
