What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

Cannot advise on that since I am still in mid-process. The spousal visa requirements are rugged and non-refundable so am tasking this very slow so I do not end up 'donating' a pile of cash to the UK government.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

He resides in council housing, and no, an expat does not qualify unless they are a citizen.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

My fiance is a Scot national and resides there.

William Russell's private medical insurance will cover you and your family wherever you may be. Whether you need primary care or complex surgery, you'll have access to the best hospitals & doctors available. Unlike some insurers, we also include medical evacuation and mental health cover in our plans (except SilverLite). Get a quote from our partner, William Russell.

Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?

They are equivalent to the condo fees I am paying. A three bedroom house, though, in Foggie is far more expensive than in Michigan and is more representative of East Coast US prices.
