Balham a nice area!

I was gonna say West is best, well cos it is.

I live in Tooting and standard is about £350 a month per person on 3/4/5 bed places, good transport links, not rough at all but very mulit cultural, just like most of London I guess. A one bed flat round here would probably cost in the region of £600-650. Wandsworth (the borough that Tooting is in) is the cheapest for council tax.

Dulwich can be pretty expensive and Dulwich village is full of rich wankers, gimmi chavs over them any day. Dulwich is also surround by some of the scummiest places in South East London though too. I used to live in Crystal Palace.

Depford is all right and quite cheap, good transport links and South East London.

But honestly places like Brixton, Ladbrook Grove, Hackney, Tooting, Lewisham Bethnal Green etc aren't as bad as people tell you they are, generally it's people that don't live in these places, that actually live in the nicer areas nearby, that say they are bad cos they one saw a guy get mugged and then they assume it happens all the time, but it doesn't.

Bromley-by-Bow (North East) is apparently a good place to rent at the mo, it's all recently been done up and cos most of the people that live round that area are city workers, people are losing their jobs or moving to cheaper areas, landlords in Bow have been dropping their rent prices to get people in. If you want a really nice place for not as much money as you'd have to pay in more desirable areas (Bow all right, just a lot of building going on and a bit sparse) then it's a good bet.

I've lived in London all my life and for one reason or another moved around a lot, I've almost lived in every borough I reckon now. I'd say South is better, generally cheaper.

Transport links tend to be better East and West, rather than North and South, especially when you are in Zone 4,5 and 6.
