Malta Move Imminent!

Postby jennyfarthing1 » Fri 28 Jun 2013 00:57 GMT

Hi All,

New to forum so excuse any mistakes...

My hubby has just been offered a role in Birkikkara.

I'm very excited about the role but also really nervous too.... I've lived in Spain and Japan in past but always alone so not so much upheaval!

We spent two weeks checking out Malta came back to UK Tues just gone.

Really liked it and like areas to North Melliha, St Paul's area. Struggling to find rental! Time if year stock etc.... We have 2000e budget but want house with pool.

We have found three bed villa with pool over budget Santa maria estate, four bed character house Burgammand (just seen pics) and three bed town house St Paul's just pics again. Any thoughts?

Have called San anton to get daughter in no space she's four in Nov.
Called San Andreas no answer! End of term maybe?

I have been offered a full time job too in letting but childcare after 2pm seems limited.... Any advice?

Just really want some advice pulse peeps move imminent band stuck with some answers even tho researched!

We also have two cats to bring..,,,

Hi Jenny, and welcome to the forum :-)

With a budget that size there should be little problem . Santa Maria estate is very nice, on the edge of Mellieha which is one of the most popular places for foreigners to live.
