Thanks bro. I have no problem living at a distance from Lavelle raod. I will be getting company transport but just don't want to spend more than 1 hour in travelling. How much time it takes from kormangla to Lavelle Road.
Thanks for your help once again, really appreciate it

You are welcome buddy, glad could be of some help. koramangla to richmond circle shouldnt take you more than 30 mins unless there is serious traffic jam on the forum road. The distance isnt much but its just that there are quite a few signal between the richmond road and forum.

Welcome to Bangalore! As Rotorhead as correctly pointed out, Lavelle road is super expensive. Apart from Koramangala, which is to the southeast, you can also look at Shanti nagar ( same direction as Koramangala, closer) and Basavangudi (Southwest of Lavelle road). Travel time to both places should be between 30-40 mins max.

as prashant mentioned, even basvangudi or jayanagar area should also be good bet and morover these places are less congested, the residential areas are pretty well planned and the roads towards the richmond circle are pretty wide, lesser signals and traffic is also considerably less.

Thanks Rotorhead & prashant for all the help. I believe we need to pay 10 months advance as security while renting a apartment. any ideas how much brokers charge 1 month or 2 months rent?

Yes thats the sad part, the deposit is generally 10 times the rent. The broker charge is typically 2 months but if you can bargain then you can settle for 1 month rent, but since you are from outside this will be difficult, but if you can do this thru some localites then it should be possible. Any of the member staying in and around these areas should be able to help you out.

In Ulsoor side you will be looking at Cox town etc., However shanti nagar is better as its right next to Lavelle road.
Another option very near is the colony right next to Trinity circle on the Old Madras Road.

Ulsoor also is quite near, route being old madras road, trinity circle, down bangalore central or/down brigade road, and richmond road(should take about 30 mins given the traffic and the flyover being constructed in M.G road, but am not sure if you will like the place since its pretty congested. Shanti nagar is pretty much close to lavelle road is quite a good place to live.

agree with Rotorhead, try Shantinagar, its a decent area.
if you are ok to travel a little more, then maybe you can look at Kormangala or Vivek nagar or something....
As far as I know you can get apartments for rent at the National Games Village complex for you budget.

Its in Koramangla. Location is pretty good with all amenities being pretty near, but the apartments are very old, and some of them have leaks etc.,

pankaj

first welcome to our lovely green garden city.
i hope you have a nice time here

1. Ideally I would suggest you consider access to workplace as your primary criterion for accommodation
2. If you are married and your wife works, consider access to her workplace too.
3. if you have little kids, plse consider their access to school etc.

Apart from the suggestions already made to you by fellow members I would also venture to add HSR Layout as an option. It is not far from Koramangala at all - about 3km from the edge of Koramangala actually.

Large layout, well lit, good wide roads, access to either an independent house at reasonable rates as also lots of apartments to choose from. Eg: An independent house on a 1200 sft plot would cost about 18-22000 for a small 2 bedroom place with an upstairs and downstairs. A tishtosh apartment can be rented out at about 18k-25k for the fancier ones.
HSR gives you easy access to commercial things and home needs etc plus shopping, movies, eating out etc.

In my experience brokers around HSR take one months rent as their commission
the norm here is 10 months advance to be paid as refundable security deposit to the landlord of the flat/ house.

Distance from HSR to richmond road / vellara junction would be about 9- 10 km, can take about 45min at peak times. Lavelle road can be reached in about 1 hour MAX, if one leaves reasonably early - say 815-820am from HSR Layout.

hope this helps you
all the best
cheers
shankar
