hey advice board, I need some help.
You see, I'm 15 years old, 16 in a couple of months. Where I live, that means you are legally an adult.
Turns out my friend's parents have decided to pick up their bags and move to Australia without him (He wanted to finish his school work and go to university here).
Because of this, his parents said he could keep the house, and the things in it, however they would not pay for living costs. This means that he needs to pay for everything.
Phone, heat, water, you name it.
With his current job, he won't be able to make it very long before he gets into trouble.
He's asked me to... well move in with him and help pay for bills.
My mother is happy for me to do it, and with both our jobs combined we can most likely make it until we both finish high school.
Im just not sure about it though.
To be honest I'm quite scared.
Then again what is there to be afraid of? I have my mother to fall back on who only lives 20 minutes away if things go tits up.
Fact is me and my friend have been bros since we can both remember.
Our mums took us to the same play group when we were 2, and since then we've been best friends. Never had a dispute thats lasted longer than 10 hours.
So advice board, do I move in with him in a couple of months or not?

if you both have cell phones, disconnect the phone line, and save money. also buy bulk water, and use that for cooking and drinking. move in, it'll be good for both of you.

I say yes, when you both graduate sell the house and split the money to pay for college, it's a win win.

Neither of us actually need to pay for actual tuition...
Uni is free here :/
And we both plan on going to the University of the city we live in...

Well then you should move in if you can handle it....but if having a job to pay for the bills and handling school is too stressful you guys should stop. Bills aren't everything, stuff breaks also, which could cost a lot.

I've had a job for 3 years now, and with school it's fine.
But these next exams determine whether I get into university or not.
We calculated the monthly cost for the 2 of us and its around £1600.
Combined we earn £1700 a month from our jobs so things will be tight...

well, if you spend as little money as you can, the remaining money will lowly add up, and if you can get the help of your mom to at least supply some money for food/ spend as little as possible it would benefit you for awhile. And if all else fails maybe he can sell the house (maybe with your friend and his parents permission) to move into your current house (with you and your family's permission)

sorry if i wasn't very helpful
