    I am currently living in Brixton Hill, right in the residential area right next to the prison. I love it. I love my flat! I love my big double room, this will be my third Christmas now.
    My problem is that the relationship I have with my flatmate has quickly deterioarated for some time now. I am on the lookout for somewhere in the same area, would love a flatshare.
    The last 3 years I have spent trying to placate my sociopathic flatmate so I am really looking to move out, but not out of the area. I am originally born and bred from Camberwell, but I actually really love Brixton so I want to stay and possibly make some new friends that don't make me grind my teeth in frustration!

    Posting on behalf of a friend on her way over from germany soon...

    PM if any of you lot know of anything going :)

    I am a 25-year old student of conservation from Dresden, Germany, and will spend six months in London to do an internship (I should arrive beginning of february).
    Therefore I am currently looking for a room, preferably in a flat with nice, sympathic flatmates. As I will be working 9-5 I guess I will be very busy especially in the beginning. Nevertheless, it would be great if could find a flat where people once in a while do spend some time together, cooking, having a glass of wine, etc.
    Also, it should be possible to reach South Kensington underground station (SW7) in about one hour and I can spend max. 100 pound pw.
    If you have an idea how I could find such a place or where to stay in the beginning, please let me know.

    My GF's moving out of her place and into mine, and I've agreed to help the landlady find a new tenant. Here's the ad on Spare Room. It's in West Dulwich and is a really nice, big room. No shared sitting room, however, and she'd much prefer a Monday-Friday let. £550pcm inc. all bills and a cleaner (not real urbans!)

    urgh, browsing for flats is depressing. Still, whenever someone says 'we live near the vibrant Brixton market' I can take the warning.

    Kind of Brixton to Peckham end of things, I've been in the area for a little while and want to stay now. I have a pretty decent place already, but it is expensive and dull so I'm thinking of pastures new.

    My friend's son is looking for a cheapish room in the Brixton area. He's an affable 22 year old musician. Any offers considered.

    I might do from September 8th if that helps?

    The owner is selling the flat from 11th August and wants me out. Since I told her to go get a proper job rather than buying and selling property and stocks, I doubt she'll extend it. So, sorry, I need somewhere before September.
