Debs Posted March 24, 2009 Report Share Posted March 24, 2009 Hi guys I am in the process of moving from the uk to utah (salt lake city) with two of my children, 12 and 4. Naturally this is a long drawn out process and not cheap, so in my process of financial planning I am wondering if anyone would be kind enough to point me in the right direction with a few things? 1. I'm looking at renting an apt to begin with, what would i be looking at paying out? Are the gas/electric/water included in rent or are they separate? 2. Do you have to pay any kind of taxes that are distributed towards local forces such as fire dept/police etc? 3. Is it cheaper to get a cellphone or a landline phone? 4. Do apt's come with basic furniture already in? 5. Do you guys have buses? If so do they use bus passes? 6. What is the average cost of living? Just the basics like bread, milk, potatoes that kinda thing and perhaps meat. I looking to going to the Washington Terrace area as I have friends there who will make it easier in learning my way round etc. Is anyone familiar with the area? I am trying to make contact with the bishops/RS presidents in that area (cos I dont know what ward we'd be in) so hopefully they can help too. One last thing, does anyone know how long it takes to get a visa/work permit? We have lived in the states before so we know this is a good move for us at this point in our lives so we are now just eager to get on with our planning and get outta here and over there!! Thanks for any help anyone can offer! Debs Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
