English term or phrase: (house) move
Hi again,

Pls could you translate, "We can't afford it because of the move". (Cultural note: Moving house in the UK is a nightmare, and wha't more an expensive one!)

Thanks,

Við höfum ekki efni á því að flytja
Explanation:
Direct translation of "Við höfum ekki efni á því að flytja" is we can´t afford to move. I think it sounds best but a direct translation of your sentence would be: Við höfum ekki efni á því vegna flutninganna.
