"He resides in council housing, and no, an expat does not qualify unless they are a citizen," added another expat who made the move to Aberchirder.

"I live in a two-bedroom letting company-rented flat. I don't think there's any "typical" living situation for expats in the UK - people live in anything from flats (council, private, or letting company-rented), houses (semi-detached or detached), country manors, etc," explained one foreigner living in Glasgow, Scotland.
