Take it or leave it?

13 years ago
hello

we are considering a move from ny to london. both of us are in jobs in NY with a base of $280K. we have a 3 year old who still is in day care and we intend to continue that arrangement in london.

now, i have been offered a base of GBP100K plus 10K relocation assistance. and my wife is being offered a base of GBP 100K as well.

is this comparable? also, in terms of budgeting for some big expenses:

52000 GBP annual rent - we would like to rent a 3BR/3Bath place in a nice lively neighborhood with ample options for kids and a short commute to work in canary wharf

24000 GBP daycare/school for our little one.

do not want to own a car

what other significant expenses do i need to consider to decide if this is even a viable move for us.

also the GBP 10K relocation - is that enough to do a international move? we have furniture that fills up a 4BR place currently.
