Hi Alice, I'm currently renting in a new city and have found what I'd like to call a dream place. I've been for a viewing and have already started visioning the interiors and imagining life in my new home. It's a lovely flat with lots of light, large windows and an amazing view. Only issue is, it's on the 16th floor. There are lifts and fire safety stairs, and although my mum originally thought the space was delightful, she is now opposed to my moving in due to it being so high up. This will be the second home I've rented, and although she won't be living there, my mum's approval is important to me. I've spoken to friends who have given me a pretty 50/50 split on the place and I'm not sure what to do — should I follow the advice of others who may be more experienced in house hunting, or trust my heart/gut and prepare myself for eating dinner with a beautiful view? Kind Regards, Lost in Translation READ MORE »
