    Good friend of mine, is looking for a room in London from April - August. She is a clean, mature woman who lives in Amsterdam - maybe a possible flat swap.
    PM for more details

    A friend of mine is looking to let a room in her flat in Brixton (just off Brixton Hill) from mid September. It's a nice sized room and a nice well kept flat. £700 pcm plus bills. You'd just be sharing with her. She's my friend, so of course, she's lovely!

    That's a lot of money for a room esp as plus bills.

    Yes I thought that, but checked and its the going rate!

    It might be the going rate but it's still a lot of money. It's not the most expensive room in Brixton by any means but I dont know how people with ordinary jobs manage to afford rent at those prices. I wouldn't be able to afford it. The last flatshare I lived in brixton (moved out a year ago) was under a grand between us for a two bed place. I've moved up the hill now as have all my friends who used to live in central Brixton. Some have moved even further away.

    100% agree with you! I count myself very lucky that I am not a young person trying to rent anymore. Chatting to her old flat mate, it seems it is quite normal now for people to spend at least 50% of salary on rent.
    And its not just Brixton. Another friend with 2 small kids is back to renting just outside London's and same proportions apply....

    :( We're very lucky where we are. Not looking forward to next year when the landlord puts the rent up.

    No excuse for this at a time of huge capital gains, ultra-low borrowing costs and zero inflation.

    Private rents should have been cut in 2009 when the base rate tumbled to 0.5 per cent and been frozen thereafter.

    That would've been nice. I had a massive room in Brixton inc all bills for under 500 then. It was big enough for a sofa, a double bed and many shelves and cupboards. It also had a fireplace, a sink, a big bay window and a smaller one. Probably the nicest and biggest room I've ever lived in. The rest of the house had a lot of character and was rough around the edges in just the right way... I could only afford it because my boyfriend was sharing the room with me and my cat. Can you even get a box room in Brixton for that money these days

    30 year old easy going bloke looking for a room to rent. Fairly open about where in London. I've got a very friendly little dog, he doesn't bark or yap, is treated for fleas and doesn't shed hair. Looking to pay up to £600 a month or so, obviously would prefer to pay less.

    I'm letting out a room for 6mths for 1 person, £500 a month all inclusive.

    Medium sized room - Brixton Hill

    Was going to put it on moveflat but it seems too pricey now.

    Hello!

    I have a spare room at mine going for at least 3 months. Maybe longer. There could be the opportunity to take the tenancy on at the end of the 3 months.

    Small unfurnished (bar shelves) double for 800pcm all bills included – which also covers Sky sports/movies and Internet.

    You'd be sharing with me (male, 29) and my cat in a lovely two-bed garden flat.

    Available from 1st July

    5 mins from shops/station in tulse hill, 10 mins from Brixton on the bus.

    Let me know if you're interested! Cheers :)

    Pics available.

    Had a look on spare room. There's rooms in tulse hill going for up to £950! It's worth noting that the price of this room includes all the bills including Sky Sports and Sky Movies and it's actually Scutta isn't profiting out of this. It's actually half the rent and bills for the place. I know this because I used to live there. :)

    I have a spare double room in a maisonette flat in Gresham Road. Two others living there, one 20 something woman who works locally in catering, and one 51 year old man (mechanic) who's been there for years. No communal lounge, just kitchen, bathroom and seperate wc. Looking at 6 months, with possibility of longer if my niece doesn't return to London. £420 pcm plus roughly £20-30 per month towards gas. Wi-fi and leccy included in rent.
