Why are you people paying rent when we can give you a free place to stay in w.norwood....if you can give some time to us.....why pay £500 per month..when you can live in a free community......ah get real...contact us.
Contact either cemertyone or gergl.

You know it makes sense :)

I would make a crack about what you just posted but please elaborate... how is it a free community? A squat? Gay 'roommate' thing? What?


I thought Manda had disappeared. I dunno why I thought that, I just did.

I will be asking for two flatmates to have some rooms in my house when its bought, but I will have to charge rent else I can't pay the mortgage... sorry.

Room available

Do you want to live in the sky, two minutes from the Brixton Recreation Centre, the Academy and Brixton tube? I have a double room available in my flat for £90 a week, inclusive of bills. Sharing with one other, (me). In a tower block, ninth floor, very good security, spacious, quiet, airy, fantastic views. Female preferred, vegetarianish preferred. Available from September.
I'm looking for a double room in a friendly easygoing shared house. I'm 25, female recent post grad and have recently moved to London.
Ideally north of the river in zone 2 and pay no more than £350 per month.
PM me if you want more info.

Might be moving at short notice, so would be looking for a single room within reasonable access of East End, not too pricey. Anyone help?


TWO rooms going in Streatham

edit - both rooms gone now thanks to this thread :)

1st floor flat with small garden (w. BBQ) on Harborough Road, Streatham (v. quiet traffic-wise). 10 min walk to Streatham High Road. Equidistant betw. Streatham Hill and Streatham train stations.

One room is absolutely massive with working dbl bed & fireplace, the other one smaller with sgl bed but liveable in. All amenities shared - living room has stereo + telly + fireplace and looks onto back garden. The larger bedroom is available in lat Nov / Dec, smaller room available now. Both semi-furnished.

Would prefer chatty person. Smoking/drinking/debauchery fine but no cats as I'm allergic.

Rent + bills (tend to be small) shared & not for profit, just to cover costs. Smaller room @ 50 quid / wk (216pcm), larger @ 65 quid / wk (280 pcm). Deposit negotiable depending on your situation.

If you've got a network card in your PC I can share my broadband connection as well.

Wanted: Room in squat.

Must have electric and prefer hot water.

No junkie hellholes please.

East or South, ty.


Experience of cooking nice vegan food, roast meat dinners, etc. rolls nice spliffs, can hold own in drinking/stumbling stakes.

Failing That:

Would like room in house or flat, South or East London; Must not mind partying, 3 dogs (not full time), smoking, noise, odd looking veggie food, or skipped 'things' piling up.

Must be cheap & friendly house.


Any spaces in squats in the london/south east area at the moment? i'm easy to live with, clean and tidy, not adverse to working hard or getting my hands dirty...i can cook!:D


I do think not!
I was in the scouts (although i am a girl) and got my knife axe and saw badge, that leaves me more than qualified to chop wood. thank-you very much.
i have a winning smile and sparkling wit and humour too.

Hello everyone!

I've got a lovely mate at work who is desperately looking for a room to share in a house, preferably in the Greenwich/Blackheath area as soon as possible.

She's a youngster of 21 from Cornwall trying to stay up in the big bad city. She doesn't smoke but smiles a lot and is toilet trained. Please PM me if you have any thing?

very many thanks. She's a little worried she might be forced back down the tin mines.

At this rate we should all just get out our A-Z's and crowbars and sort this out once and for all.


My two rooms (see above) are still going (unless stuff_it still wants the large one.)

Come on guys, I don't wanna have to advertise in Loot!

If people are looking to squat a place, I'll help them out, got a near complete spare set of tools leftover etc etc

I might need a room at the begining of March. I'll let you know.

Trouble is, I can't hang on until March (unless I can find someone who wants the room for a short period).

I'm very chuffed to say that the smaller room has been taken by an urbanite who will be moving in next week!

The bigger room is STILL going - it's absolutely huge, it's even got a working fireplace with a gorgeous mantlepiece and I'm offering it at a knockdown rate cos I'd prefer an urbanite to take it (except pbman :D).

Trust me, if I advertised in Loot I could find someone in no time who would be happy to pay far more.


I'm Looking

I'm looking for a Flat share in London I can go up to 90ppw at a pinch but would prefer 80ppw. Need a double bed, can't sleep in singles, and a decent shower, I'm flexable on everything else. Oh yes my dead line for this is 12th Feb but I could afford to start 1st of Feb

PM please
