First you need to let me know where in LA you would be working. If you are comfortable with a commute or want to be close to work. If you prefer the hills, flats or near the ocean. If you would prefer a home or condo. I find that many of the people coming to LA from the UK prefer areas like Santa Monica (it has a huge Brit population). A friend of mine also belongs to a group called Brits in LA which he loves as it puts him in touch with other UK transplants. Finally it is important to decide what price range you are considering. I'd be happy to connect you with the group I mentioned. I also think that many people from the UK prefer areas with something similar to a High Street where they can walk to shops and stores. Areas like that that are great include Los Feliz, Silverlake, Santa Monica, Larchmont, Studio City, Beverly Hills, Miracle Mile, West Hollywood and Brentwood.
Please email me with the answers to the questions above and I'd be happy to give you more feedback about an ideal locations.
Thanks and best,
