I would go with probably.

My mortgage is just over that and between me and my flatmate I doubt we have £1000 income. It will depend on your lifestyle and where you are though I guess.

Edit: we don't pay council tax or water though. I guess these are some of the things you might need to think about when adding up costs

Gas, Electricity, Water, Phone, Internet, Council tax, Contents Insurance

Between two of us

£640 rent
£25 elec
£20 gas
£25 water
£120 council tax
£30 tv + Broadband + Telephone


council tax is 25% reduction for single occupant and I would guess that would be about right for the gas/water/elec as well.

We both only have showers (tap shower, not power shower), 2 computers-only on when where in the house. So I would say we use medium elec and low water.

Then ontop of that I have
£23 Mobile
£134 Loan
£100 fuel
£100 food

This is all per month.

Ones you may want to add if you pay monthly
car insurance
content insurance
and any other direct debits you have

Unfortunately if you live on your own the bills go up a lot.
