    I've found a lovely house in Nunhead if anyone is interesting in coming in with me. Its got 3 beds, two receptions, two bathroom, two kitchens even plus a small garden - -£1400 so with say three in there it come in around 450 but with tons and tons of space

    Theres a nite bus route nearby so it aint as remote as many will fear, plus it's within 5 mins max, even for a lazy type like me of One Tree Hill - plus a cabinet minister, or rather her sister as the minister only stays there from time to time, lives at the other end of what is admittedly a very long road - so there is always the option of shouting from the bus window as you pass -give her a reason for wearing a stab proof vest the softie!!
    Its also within stroll / stagger of Nunheads bright lights!!!
    I like it round there, its fairly quiet but there you go
    Any takers?

    You alright Hipipol? Wouldn't expect you to be moving if that doesn't sound presumptuous.

    If anyone knows of any 1 bed flats in and around Oval/Vauxhall/Bermondsey/London Bridge/Borough/Bermondsey coming available in the next few months, can you let me know. A flat with a garden or at least some outside space would be the dream, but I'm not holding my breath!

    My room is going to be available from the end of May - double bedroom in a 3 storey town, 3 bedroom house, with garden, garage and OSP. Nice big lounge and kitchen for socialising but its not really a party house, beyond the occasional late night booze sessions.

    It's about 2 mins from West Norwood High Street and the train station, quite near the cemetary. Rent is atound £350 pcm plus bills, which are about £150 a month, I'd guess....

  8. Guineveretoo

    Guineveretoo Mostly bewildered

    I think I need a lodger, but I am a bit scared of admitting that on here, so be nice to me!

    Basically, I need someone to help me financially, but also for a bit of company and cat sitting on occasion. I have got a double bedroom on offer (or a single, if anyone is prepared to pay for that, and leave the double for me to use as a spareroom!).

    The house is mine, and is in South Norwood, so has Norwood Junction station for trains to London, and also East Croydon station, although you might need a bus to get to the latter. The house is on a bus route, but not night buses. It has got a small garden with a pond full of fish, frogs and newts, and I have got 3 cats. What else do people want to know?

    I haven't worked out how much to charge yet, because I am only really dipping my toe in the water to see if there is any interest. The house has wi-fi. The house is a mess, so it would be nice if the person who moved in didn't mind mess, but also didn't mind clearing up mess, as I really want/need help to get things sorted :)

    I have health problems, which make it difficult for me to maintain the house, and I also work silly hours, which often mean I am working from home late at night. I will not tolerate loud music.

    Oh, I should probably add that I am a grumpy, middle aged woman, but that all my previous lodgers have enjoyed living with me, despite that! :D

    I am off to work out how much I need to charge to make it feasible and worthwhile to take this risk and give up my freedom! If anyone is interested, please PM me, and let's talk.

    I will not take any lodger without a reference, and I am also asking my daughter and her friends if they know of anyone, so this post could be pointless, as the room could be filled any second.
  9. Guineveretoo

    Guineveretoo Mostly bewildered

    Oh, I should have said - I won't tolerate smokers in my house, either, although I have no problem with people smoking on the patio or the front garden, which is what previous lodgers did :)

    sam/phallocrat Denarian + 1 R.I.P.

    I'm looking for a room within a sensible distance of central Greenwich, looking to move in at the end of August/start of September. Location wise I'm not too fussed but want to be somewhere with a communte of about 30-40 minutes or less on a maximum of 2 buses, peak time. I'm going to Trinity College there in September so will be a FT student, with all the attendant tax breaks so will probably need to live with other FT students as I don't want to have to pay council tax unless I absolutely have to. I'd prefer a decent sized room in a not-too-scabby house but as I'm on a tight budget I'm prepared to be very flexible.

    Oh, about me - 25, music student to be (singer), been living and working in Sheffield for the last 7 years but grew up in Plumstead, adaptable, good to live with (so I'm told) blah blah blah etc.

    I'm also gonna have a mooch about on gumtree and craigslist but if anyone's got any useful suggestions as to where else I could look, or cool areas (tho I do know SE London reasonably well) I'd appreciate it.


    saaam :)

    Wanted: a room in cat-friendly house share in London, preferably with a bed already in it.

    Don't really mind if its single or double or where in London it is so long as I can move in soonish and keep my cat (male, neutered, 7 months old) I am a non-smoking 22 year old female and have a job. My limit is about 400 squids or 450ish including bills.

    I suspect this is wishful thinking to a large degree.

  16. Xanadu

    Xanadu Masterful but awkward

    I'm in the market for something in a couple of months. I'm looking for a share, somewhere around Highbury/Islington, Bethnal Green, London Bridge/Canada Water or Maida Vale. Budget is £700 a month including bills/tax. I'd need a decent sized room, with a desk, double bed and a wardrobe/some storage. It needs to be a short walk to a tube station and have decent night bus links.

    sam/phallocrat Denarian + 1 R.I.P.

    Boss news - I've found a place in Hither Green which already has a good mate of mine living there, and from the sound of it it seems pretty ideal on all counts I'm moving in around the start of September so I guess I'll be seeing a fair bit more of some of you lot, and hopefully I'll meet a few new cool people as well . . .

    saaam 100% SE London :D
  18. pootle

    Ace news! :cool:

    In other news: my lovely mate from work has a room going in her lovely 2 bed flat in Archway.

    It's about 5 mins walk from the station, available from the 19th August.

    Decent sized double bedroom with shared lounge and nice, decent sized kitchen, and winning bathroom. Nice and light too, with original big sash windows. I'd certainly live there if I wasn't so old and grumpy and not capable of sharing anymore ;)

    It's £640 pcm and with bills comes in around £700. PM me if interested.

    Hello! I need to find 2 people to move asap in this house where I’ve been renting for 5 years. One of the tenants has moved out a while ago and since then the landlord has been redecorating, painting, and new carpets have been fitted. Now the other tenant is going back home, so I find myself having to start from scratch and to find 2 new people moving in.
    The house is on 2 floors, with 3 bedrooms, 1 guest room, 1 bathroom, 1 toilet, 1 shower room, a large kitchen and dining room, and a lovely well-kept garden; there is also plenty of storage space around the house. The rooms are both large size (one is 11x10ft and the other is 15x11ft), and both got beds and wardrobes (should you have your own furniture, I’m sure this can be arranged with the landlord). Rent is £380/month+bills and £420/month+bills for the larger one. The house is in Honor Oak Park SE23, but don’t be put off by this as it’s literally 2min from the train station, which has got frequent services to London Bridge (every 10min). The train takes 12min to London Bridge and 20min to Charing Cross. The bus to Brixton takes 20min. The Honor Oak area is very pleasant and green and the house is on a quiet road.
    I’m female, 42 years old but young at heart, and I work as freelance translator. There is also a very friendly cat in the house, called Dante. Ideally I’d be looking for people aged 30 and above, and for 6 months at least. I do smoke, so smokers are welcome. One last thing: one room is available even now and the other on the 1st of September. Thanks for reading, please email giovannac_at_onetel_dot_com if you want more info, look forward to hearing from you.

    My niece and her mate are looking for somewhere accessible to Uni of East London, anybody know of anything or websites like Gumtree they can try? Their both 19 btw but nice peeps and Londoners but not fancying a trek from Wimbledon.

    gioioioi, if you change your mind about the age thing, please let me know as that sounded ideal.
  22. gioioioi

    gioioioi Member

    Hi BlackArab, one of the rooms has been taken, so there would be only one to rent. Though nothing definite, as the guy hasn't confirmed yet. I will know in the next few days, so I can keep you posted, or you can mail me if you wish.

    I need somewhere. Somewhere East London-y, ideally close to the district line, ideally where i would be able to smoke weed and maybe even own a cat. I don't currently own a cat, but i have a dream.
